What you have on the list is a solid build. You should be happy with it. You could definitely do it cheaper without sacrificing too much but it’s hard to recommend alternatives without knowing why you picked the specific parts on your list. Also, if you aren’t planning on doing hardcore gaming and you want to do more productive task like photoshop then look into ryzen. it may be a good fit for you.

^this. Replace the cpu with a R7 200X and an Asus X470 Prime Pro. You can also replace the RX580 with a Vega 56 and still have left over to get a better PSU.

Exactly. I would definitely rather have this ryzen/ Vega system. But everyone has their own opinion. You could also go with an ab350 over the x470 chipset, it’s cheaper and can still overclock. Or a rx 590 over the Vega 56, again cheaper. Or you could remove the gpu altogether and go with something like an amd 2400g apu. Way cheaper. Hope I am not making it more confusing.

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is outdated and obsolete and there are much better options

The PSU you picked is not very good either which is why its so cheap

Another Reason, I think it is worth looking into Ryzen and not have to worry about paying $350++ for the cpu alone. If budget Constraint Absolutely and maybe you can get the better GPU or something. I do see some Appeal there.

I wouldn't risk all that expensive hardware on a 80 Plus White or Bronze power supply, not when you can find decent 80 Plus gold power supplies on sale all the time (in the US).

With the size of games these days, that 256GB m.2 drive will fill up fast. If possible, i would bump it up to 512GB.

As others have said, go with Ryzen! Best value for the money and since you aren't going to do hardcore gaming, you will be fine with it. Also, yes please get a good quality power supply! EVGA Supernova or Corsair AX/HX series seem to be a great place to start looking.
