Will this workout just fine or did I miss anything?

To the parts: CPU: Freakin' amazing for the value.. Memory: Just hopefully correct working memory that is available in my region Storage: Hopefully a fitting M.2 SSD into the Barebone Case, Motherboard and so on: Shuttle Barebone XH110: I think it's a very nice case and the most fitting I found on their website.

If anyone finds a mistake, please tell me. Otherwise feedback is also much appreciated, what you guys think of the idea?

Thanks for your reply.

Well, I am aware that I could go much cheaper. An old and used Computer from EBAY or similar site would probably do just fine as well.

However I am a man who is pleased by astethics and the plan is to mount the barebone unti behind the screen, which will be mounted to a wall.... :P
