So I'm looking to build a new computer, as I had to give my last one to my brother, and I was wondering what everyone thought of this build. I spent a lot of time researching this one as the last one I made wasn't perfect. If you could please supply feedback and tell if anything should be changed, it would be much appreciated. Keep in mind that the budget I'm trying to stick to is $450.

Drop the SSD. WAY too small to use.
Get 2x4gb RAM

use the saved money to get a better GPU.
