Need some reviews on this budget build

This pc build was for a friend of mine and he wanted some thing a little cheaper than this so if anyone knows if I can get cheaper parts for relative performance that be great.

Switched from a r9 280 to a r9 270 for cost efficiency

Hey I tweaked a few things. Got a better gpu and psu for less money. Also it's a small thing but I think this case looks a lot better (and it costs a little less too).

If nothing else the psu is an INCREDIBLE deal and I highly recommend you go for it.
