My friend's $550 budget PC build. Any thoughts?

Here is the link to the build:

He wants to play these games:
Arma III

I think this build fits his budget of $550 and gaming needs perfectly. Any thoughts?

Looks fairly good. Case is a bit bigger than it needs to be though since motherboard is only micro atx.

If you want to save some money the EVGA 500B is of a similar build and performance but much cheaper.

Thanks for the quick reply! I agree but he is concerned with the look of the PC so I think the clean 100R will suit his needs in that area.

If you have any smaller case suggestions please let me know.

I switched it to the EVGA psu. Thanks!

If you don't care about a window I'd highly recommend the Cooler Master N200. Very easy to build in.

Wow did not come across that one while I was looking for smaller cases. Thanks again!

Should go for one of the MSI H110 or B150 boards, they all have better power delivery than the gigabyte board there

Also spend the money on the better wireless card over a nicer case for now

and if you get the devestator bundle, get the newer version, the Devestator 2/II it's a bit better
