Given the prices of solid state storage, you can probably double the capacity for the same, or possibly even less, money.

That too. Get 128gb if you're absolutely can't afford 256gb.

You can also strip down the case fans to 2 instead of 4, buy it later when you have more money.

Looks good, but i would recommend just going for the Ryzen 3600 instead of 2700.

@SupaKomputa what will this do to the preformance? (as i will mainly play games and surf the web will it inpact any of those?)

The 3rd generation have a better clockspeed and boost.

In games this is more beneficial than extra cores.

The price difference is just 10-30$ more. You can get that from the case fans.

@SupaKomputa changed the cpu to a 3600, and upgraded the M.2 to a 512GB. other than that the pc should be good to go? im planning on getting an AMD rx 5700xt AIO card if one comes out but if not ill buy the refference model, (hence the amount of fans)

The case already came with 2 fans preinstalled, you don't need 4.

There's no space to put 2 other fans.

Fans are optional, get them if you need it.

Build the system first, if you're not satisfied with the cooling performance, then get a better one.

Usually case fans that came with the case is enough.

@SupaKomputa i know that, but i just really want a silent computing experience because my current system is a noisy mess of older fans and a aio with a noisy pump

Yeah, i still think you should build it first, then decide the fans later.

Beside if you're using AIO, you really don't need that much fans, as the AIO fans can help the circulation.

@SupaKomputa oh im not using an aio on the cpu no way in hell im doing that again. but if a AMD rx 5700 xt card comes out with semi aio i would probably opt for that because in the case it's either that or blower style cards. as you can see in this picture. and as of now i don't have the funds to upgrade my GPU so ill use me gigabyte windforce gtx 960 for the time being. even thogh it will be pretty choked above the PSU

@LienusLateTips around 1000 usd without GPU, and Norway. but i have goten the components down to 850usd cuz ill use my old 600w PSU, and my 250GB SSD and 2x 1TB HDDS for now. so the build is pretty much complete but before i order i have to get in touch with the Motherboard retailer and ask if it has the newest BIOS update on the board so i can use the 3600 cpu.
