Tell me any changes that you would make to improve this build. Also, tell me of a good $20 keyboard and mouse combo. Thanks in advance!

Solid build overall, I changed the monitor to a cheaper one without having to rely on rebates. Added a kb/m combo.

Hrmph. Maybe try to fit in much more power for those demanding games. Just wait for some deals/used parts to roll in. Try for an i5 6500. If you buy the Graphics Card new, just go for a 1060. Slightly more performance for a comparable price.

Nice going for a B150 ;)
