Thoughts on this $600 build I am thinking about buying?

Intel Pentium G4560
EVGA 1050 Ti (04G-P4-6253-KR)
MSI B250M Gaming PRO
Seagate ST3750640NS HDD, 750GB
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM, 1x8GB
EVGA 450B3 (220-B3-0450-V1)

Anything you would swap and change or anyone had any bad experiences with any of the parts listed?

Seems like a solid budget build. I hadn't heard of the CPU before, but after a few minutes of research, it looks like an amazing budget CPU. Just don't plan on streaming/twitching games while playing. I assume you don't want to play at anything higher than 1080p.

Edit: Here's a cheaper alternative from PC Part Picker.

I'd go for 2x4GB RAM, as for all I know this makes memory access much faster. Apart from that a 1050 Ti would be something I'd go for, too, giving the budget. Maybe a 250GB SSD, that shouldn't be much more than the 750GB harddrive. It's not much with Windows eating a couple of 10 GB, plus some games nowadays 50GB each on top, but if you have just a few games installed, and the others backup'ed for good measure, the speed boost was worth it for me (pulled that off with a 120GB and Windows 7 and was happy for years, now just more SSD.)
