I know people really like SSD's but if you want to take that SSD out of the budget, it might be worth it to get a 1050 TI, or 1060 instead.

Not bad, but is it possible to do something about the cables? I'm not sure if the case has space behind the motherboard tray, but making it a bit neater would improve its looks a lot!

this is a good idea.

 

Or if you only play like 1 game, drop that HDD. Upgrade GPU and save up for the mass storage later.

Which 1050Ti or 1060 should I get?

Get an R3 1200 instead of the 1300x. Get a cheaper 240-256GB SSD. Get a better PSU. Get faster RAM. Up the 1050 to a 1050Ti.

Go with Ryzen 3 1200.

Get 2400+ MHz RAM

Get a 2nd TB of HDD storage for just $10-15 more (or as the other poster said, get the HDD later)

500 watts is probably overkill for this build, but whatever reliable PSU you can get is fine.
