Budget X-Plane 11 build

I'd like to keep this as close to $500 as possible (including a monitor) while running on relatively high settings at 1080p. It also needs to be compact which is why I've chosen the SG13 case. Here's what I've come up with so far. Anywhere I can go cheaper?

from what I hear, x plane 11 is actually pretty poorly optimised. So idk if this would work...

I would save until $750-1000 to get a better GPU/RAM for the game, if Planet_shone's comments are indeed true.
