Build Guide- https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Qf6MHN 

Anyone have any suggestions to replace any parts for better performance or price? Thank you for the help, this is my first build ever and im new to this. 

 

Maybe a 7200rpm hard drive, 5400 is usually a bit slower, it shouldn't cost you much more.

Get rid of that keyboard, and invest that into a better gpu. Those types of really cheap mechanical keyboards don't last long at all.

I would look into an SSD for booting. You could get away with only a 64gb or 128gb for just the OS and some key programs

What are you planning to use this for because i think the ryzen may be a bit over kill and getting an i5 or something may be a bit better

im planning to use this for games like CsGo, world of tanks, war thunder, star conflict, payday 2, battlefield and similar games. i just want a good average fps. may use this for some simple school work like word, but i wouldnt be running much tasks at once,

I put a more basic mouse/keyboard mobo, but for now just go and buy the cheapest combo you can find at walmart. Specs always supersede peripherals.

The RX 470 I put on there is honestly dependent on if you're going to wait until the new mining craze is over. if not, Just go ahead and get a 1050ti.

Well if your on a budget on 600$ which is around your pcpartpicker total you could get an old dell and put in a new graphics card for fairly cheap

Get a used Dell Desktop from craiglist or ebay and put in a 1060 or a 1050ti  graphics card and your set also it will be a bit harder to use cpu intensive tasks because you will be risking that lower end cpu

Did you even look at what a Sempron 140 is?

 This is one compared to a Celeron

sempron is literal garbage, it doesn't support ddr4 since it's amd and not Ryzen.

As far as Ik, the Pentium G4560 is an awesome budget cpu for gaming, since it's equivalent to an kabylake i3, but 1/2 the price.

But I haven't paid attention in the last month to see if anything has beaten the pentium for budget gaming.

what about an i3-7100? at only $100 its not much more expensive, but would  it give any performance advantages?
