Devil is in the details here.. shame so many people miss them!

Your case is both very thin with only low profile PCIe brackets (i.e. only the very worst graphics cards like the GT 720 will fit) and also micro BTX as opposed to ATX which is not an enthusiast or typically a consumer standard of motherboard layout.

Dump the case else you will waste more money finding parts that do fit.

Problem is that, that specific case is proprietary. Meaning PC Standard will not work. you will have to buy a new case. here is something that might jingle your jolly's.

But I would recommend spending $25 more and getting this build with a dedicated GPU.

Heres my list an important thing to rember is if you go apu make sure you get the highest speed ram you can because it affects performance a lot because it acts as the gpu's memory. This will give acceptable fps for gaming but eventually try to get a dedicated gpu off craiglist or something. I gave u $20 gap so you can increase the storage if you want PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Here's. A list with a gpu and will get you much better fps and will take you from 720p to 1080p. Also if you want more storage like 500gb it would take you $5 over your budget but it's probably worth it. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
