I think it is pretty good for being the $560 price tag. Ryzen 3 really helps with that. If anything would be better if swapped, please share your opinion. Thank you!

It's not great. No point spending the extra $20 for an R3 1300x, just get a 1200. Motherboard is somewhat sub par, you can get a better motherboard for $5-10 more, that won't be as limiting. GPU is stupid over-priced. Paying anymore than $140-150 for a GTX 1050Ti is a total waste of money. Even $150 is a bit much for a 1050Ti IMO but there's not much you can do about that since the RX 470/570s are all overpriced and almost impossible to find. RAM is overpriced, you can get faster RAM for a lower price and Ryzen likes faster RAM so it would be stupid to spend more on a 2400MHz kit than you can get 2666MHz or even 2800MHz for.

Better motherboard and RAM, plus you get an SSD. Case is pretty similar in terms of quality but looks a little nicer IMO.

Here's some even better, alternative motherboards if you want;

I ended up switching a lot of the parts out and adding parts. The case I had comes with two fans, so that's why I kept it. Yours just has spots for two fans. I switched my RAM to yours since it was the better option. I stuck with the Ryzen 1300x since I already bought it (lol stupid ik) and it's only $20 for more performance. I added the SSD and the HDD too since they were cheaper than the original ones. I chose the ASUS motherboard since it had four RAM slots, but two graphics card slots and would give a lot of room to upgrade. What is the difference between our graphic cards? I think it would be worth the extra couple of dollars to get a little bit more powerful one, especially since all the GPU's are way overpriced.

Kazu wroteI ended up switching a lot of the parts out and adding parts. The case I had comes with two fans, so that's why I kept it. Yours just has spots for two fans.

No, it doesn't. It has space for more than 2 fans. Also, it's cheaper, you could just use the extra $6 or so to get an extra case fan, and probably a better one than is included with either case anyway.

Kazu wroteI stuck with the Ryzen 1300x since I already bought it (lol stupid ik) and it's only $20 for more performance.

It's fine if you already have it but it would've been much wiser to get the 1200 and save the $20. The 1300x isn't really a better CPU, it's the exact same CPU, just has higher clock speeds out of the box. Overclock the 1200 by 300MHz and you have yourself a 1300x for $20 less.

Kazu wroteI chose the ASUS motherboard since it had four RAM slots, but two graphics card slots and would give a lot of room to upgrade.

The Asus mobo is better than the MSI one I put in the parts list I recommended, however FYI, the MSI board also has 4 DIMM slots anyway and you won't have multi-GPU support, regardless of what motherboard you go for. B350 chipset doesn't have SLI support, and the 1050Ti doesn't support SLI either anyway. Only way you'd get multi-GPU support is with an AMD GPU.

Kazu wroteWhat is the difference between our graphic cards?

Pretty much nothing. The cooler is different, that's it. Hence why $180 for a 1050Ti is stupid overpriced.

Kazu wroteI think it would be worth the extra couple of dollars to get a little bit more powerful one, especially since all the GPU's are way overpriced.

Sure, it would be worth the extra couple of dollars for a better GPU, that's not what you've done though, you've just added $30 to the price for no real improvement.

Alright so now would you say it is "perfected"?
