I’m planning on building a PC and came up with the following. I was wondering if there is anything I could do to make this cheaper or better. I’m planning on using it as a gaming PC.

the 3100 prices are a bit weird right now, they should be around $100. 

 

fitted in a better SSD, Mobo, GPU, and PSU, the case has better airflow, though getting another fan for intake is recommended.
