Hi guys thanks in advance. Here my first build. After some days of research i've made this list. I go for an AMD GPU cause FreeSync. I usually play RTS games (Xcom, Civilizzation, Heroes Vii) and sometimes FPS (Battlefield, War Thunder). The build is around a Corsair 620W cause is the only item i have :D

I can raise about 100/200$ more.

Maybe make your Mobo an ATX and get a Corsair 100r for aesthetics or 200r if you don't care about aesthetics. But if you don't want to it;s okay. All in all decent if build if you're running AAA games on medium - high.

Solid partslist. If I were you, I might go down to 8gb of ram and use the extra money for an RX 480 4gb instead, but that's just me. Or, if you want to wait for Ryzen R5s and R3s and see how they compare price + performance wise versus that Pentium, that wouldn't be a bad idea. But at the end of the day, it depends how anxious you are to start gaming. Don't wait too long, you'll just waste time.

I would switch that SSD for this one instead. Over double the SSD space and you won't notice a difference in speed in anything other than synthetic speed tests.
