New budget gaming PC

Cool.  not sure if you considered peripherals in budget... looks covered.  solid build! SSD pricing has been falling steadily this year.  fingers crossed that this trend continues through 2018 and into next year.  may be able to snag a cheap one on sale.  good luck!

Hello everyone,
 

My little brother's birthday is in aprox. a week and I wanna build him a new PC. Unfortunately I had some unexpected expenses and now i only have a budget of around 750 USD.
I gather some parts, and i want your opinion but keep in mind that i'm from Eastern Europe and here prices tend to be higher than US, Canada. Next to every component i'll convert the price to USD ( and CAD).
- MoBo: MSI B350M PRO-VD PLUS - 70.84 USD ( 92.15 CAD )
- CPU: AMD ryzen 5 1400 - 126.49 USD ( 164.56 CAD )
- GPU: MSI GeForce® GTX 1060 ARMOR 6G OCV, 6GB GDDR5, 192-bit - 354.19 USD ( 460.78  CAD )
- RAM: Kingmax Zeus Dragon Gaming, 8 GB DDR4, 3000 Mhz, 1,35v CL16 - 103.49 USD ( 134.62 CAD )
- HDD: WD Blue 1TB, 7200rpm, 64MB cache - 48.08 USD ( 62.54 CAD )
- PSU: FSP HE-500+, 500W, 80 PLUS, ATX 2.4, PFC Activ - 47.57 USD (  61.89  CAD )
- Case: Gembird Midi Tower Black/Blue Fan Fornax 600 BF - 17.71 USD ( 23.04  CAD)

TOTAL : 768.37 USD ( 999.61 CAD )
Any help / suggestions are appreciated.

Note: I know that the case is really, and i mean REALLY ugly but it's what's in the inside that counts.
And i have one curiosity, it will be worth to buy down the road a 144Hz 1080p monitor ? ( maybe as a Christmas gift)

Masterbox q300l seems like a very nice matx case for 50 usd. Might be my case choice for my build. Either that or the Thermaltake view 28 rgb that i can get for 50 usd.

Those case are really nice, especially the Thermaltake, but in case you didn't noticed i can't afford to spend 30-35 USD more especially for the case. If i had 30 USD more, i would prefer to buy a 120gb Kingston SSD

I understand, I don't even have my case yet. All my stuff is on my motherboard box.

yeah 1080p 144hz monitor would make a great xmas present.

What about OS, mouse, keyboard, headphones/headsets/ speakers, mousepad? 

To be honest i don't really know what peripherals my brother has. All I know his mouse is some Mionix mouse, some 30USD mechanical keyboard, Razer Kraken headset and that's it. And win10 as OS
