Any comments and suggestions are appreciated. Especially ways to reduce the price without compromising too much performance

Made some small edits. Cheaper better fitting board for the CPU, cheaper faster RAM and a better GPU:

I have deliberated between AMD and Intel CPUs.

 

According to articles online they don't really have too much of a difference when gaming, just that sometimes AMD CPUs can have slightly better price/performance.

Instead of using PCPP, use http://www.coolpc.com.tw/evaluate.php

 

It is the store with the cheapest prices in Taiwan. I have looked many times and it is better than stores in GH3C and 24h PCHome.
