Is there any way that I can lower the cost, but still be able to play the games that I want on 1080p 60fps and keep the price/performance ratio good? I also want to make it for future upgradability.

Some places like Microcenter sometimes have the Ryzen 1600 for $100, which is an excellent value, and it comes with a decent enough cooler. Skip the external wifi card in my opinion and get a better board with wifi built in. I dropped the B3 (which isn't that good) for a CX (a good budget PSU despite not being modular) for price reasons. For the same price as the B3 after rebates you could get the Corsair TXM which is a far superior unit.

I'd like to see a better monitor in there; really for a 1080p commodity display you should check the used market. You could probably get something similar for a third that price, depending on your location. Alternatively, spending a little more on an IPS or VA display with similar response time would probably be nice for the gaming experience, or a slightly higher refresh rate.

I really like this, but the problem is that I would at least like a semi-modular PSU as I would only be using 1 6+2 connector and I don't think that I would have enough SATA power cables for the number of drives I plan on having in this system. That's why I went with the fully modular PSU as it would help immensely on cable management.

There is definitely something to be said for cable management. The TXM that I mentioned would be better than the B3, considering same wattage and price after rebates. Sometimes the newer CXMs go on sale for even cheaper, so you might keep an eye out for that to try to keep as low budget as possible.

That monitor deal seems too good to be true to me but I don't know that much about the eBay monitor market to be fair. It's a good model though; I'd take a decent VA over TN any day.

If everything works out it should be a very nice build for the money! :)
