Ironically, this would give you better performance.

-Better CPU

-Better GPU

-16gb of RAM isn't necessary.

-Do you need a 2tb HDD?

-Cheaper, but still good power supply. If you can spend the extra $10 opt for this specific one

-Better monitor for same price . It's only 900p though. I'd recommend a 1080p like this

-Better mouse/keyboard combo


I left out the WiFI adapter. It's highly recommended that you go the wired connection route.

Its only about $10 over. It has a better monitor, PSU, CPU, GPU, and I saved money.

The Pentium is more than 10% worse. The i3 has two whole threads on it and the R9 380 would be on par with the GTX 1050 Ti at best.
