I think you are spending too much on gimmicks like USB LED Strip Light, liquid cooler for that CPU (wtf?), extra case fan (for what? nothing in this pc creates much hot air)  and Silverstone SST-ES02-USB remote switch kit. I know some do not count a wireless keyboard ($130 wtf) gimmick but I do.

 

Why would you ever buy windows 10 for $100 when you can get it OEM keys from key sellers and eBay legally for $10 bucks? I bought multiple office and windows keys from eBay and they are still working without any problem years later. 

 

I think you could save some money and invest in better cpu/ gpu because you will get more value out of it than otherwise.

The cooler that comes with this is good enough, but I would use kryonaut over the shitty stock paste or mx-4, a better mobo, and the 580 > 1050ti.  You could get a 1060 6gb, but more vram is also a plus.  I also gave you a slightly higher PSU over the 450w.  Probably won't need this much, but uh still.  Also, the 2200g performs roughly the same as a 1300x, but costs less.  Oh right, I also added slightly faster RAM.  I mean you can still go 16 if it's needed.  You might need a beefier cooler if you plan to up to a Zen 2 CPU, but the Tomahawk can probably handle a zen 2 5, maybe 7.

Instead of focusing on a bunch of RGB that won't improve performance at all I would suggest something along the lines of this:
