    You say low-mid budget, but what is the price point. I can help much better with a price in mind.

    Just by looking at your list, I can tell you not to get the TB SDD. That is waaay too expensive for your budget. Just get a WD Blue HDD.

    Let me know your price point and I can help you more.

    Good Luck!

    Are you getting the i3-6100 just to be able to pair it with a budget motherboard? If so, this is one place where going up just a little will pay *huge* dividends. Intel's new i3-8100 has 4 physical cores for $15 more than the 2-core -6100. Z370 motherboards for the -8100 start around $110 and will give you the option of upgrading to the 6-core/12-thread -8700K if you want, when it gets cheaper.

    I agree with Night Owl, the 1TB SSD is a bit excessive. Downgrade to a 500GB, spend the difference on the CPU and motherboard, make sure you get dual-channel DDR4 RAM, and you should have a pretty powerful machine.
