  1. You can use a PNY 240 GB SSD to cut down 10$ and it's actually a bit faster
  2. The power supply doesn't need to be 500W, you can get the corsair cxm 450W for 10-15$ cheaper
  3. Get a GTX 950 it is cheaper and better than the rx460
  4. You can get a H170 chipset mobo for the same price
  5. If you still want to cut down the price, you can get an i3-6100 without loosing much performance. It only has 2 physical cores but the hyper threading helps make up for it. Alternatively you can get an i5-6400.

Where are you buying your parts? Not the U.S., correct? Those prices aren't right if so.
