Help Needed on a Mini ITX Build

Hello Everyone and thanks in advance for the help!

I want to build a Mini ITX gaming computer on a Budget. I already have a Corsair 380T case (Gift from an Awesome GF) and was hoping to use it soon. This is my first time attempting to build a PC and Underneath is the general sense of what I need.

       Budget: *Hoping for 600 Dollars  (Case not inlcuded), but I'm Flexible*

       Location: *Currently in Dominican Republic But will be in NYC in the month of March.*

       Use: *Gaming; Will be connected to an HDTV and used as a media center.*

       Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): *None*

      Operating System required: *Already have Windows 10.*

I did some research and was think of using the following parts in my build: pcpartpicker.

Truth be told, I lost on what motherboard,PSU and Memory to use. With regards to the MOBO, I was hoping for something with wifi or that would allow a wifi/bluetooth network adapter.

I would really appreciate some suggestions!

You can up t the gpu to the 380 I just figure the games you will be playing aren't going to be that intense if your using an i3

The main reason I chose an i3 was for the price, Plus I could always upgrade to an i5 in a year or so. I just though a better GPU was more important than CPU for gaming.

Well what games are you planning on playing?

Often times the CPU can be just as important.
