Budget is 1300$

520w PSU is not gonna cut it.

Also drop to a 120GB SSD and a cheaper chassis if you need to free up some cash.

Been thinking of swapping out the PSU for a corsair ax760 because electricity is really expensive where i live. Also the the case size fits perfectly under my desk so i went for the microatx

STACKS ON DECK. Not bad.

However again, needlessly expensive chassis, weaker GPU that you originally chose...

Better quality across the board.
Still microATX.
Smaller SSD.
