$600 Budget Build Opinions?

Hi! I put this part list together using the Pentium G3258. I was trying to keep this under $500 but now the price I'd want to keep under would be $600. I put this together in 15 minutes just to see what I could get. Some obvious changes would be the RAM but any other changes would be nice. Thanks :D

DO you live near a microcenter? they have a msi z97 and pentium g3258 combo for $99!

But if you are keeping it itx it will be higher than an atx build but that's up to you.

IMHO i would spend the extra bucks to get the r9 270x.

Unfortunately I don't live near one but that sounds like an awesome deal! I would like to keep the build small though so that's why I went with ITX, but if it really makes a huge improvement I might switch over to ATX.

i mean it doesn't make that much of a difference performance wise so if you like the itx then the extra $~50 bucks is probably fine.

Awesome. After replacing that PSU the build is only $604 now so if I ever decide to build it I should be fine. Thanks!
