Looks like a very solid build, the power supply capacity should handle everything. 

 

Only thing I might suggest is for a different case, in case (haha) you decide to get a bigger motherboard at some point. You can get a good bigger case for the money you are spending on that smaller one.

CPU: Ryzen smokes every i5 CPU https://pcpartpicker.com/product/72wqqs/amd-ryzen-5-1400-32ghz-quad-core-processor-yd1400bbaebox
Motherboard+case: ITX + Radeon RX 580 is not very suitable combination. Really want ITX?
PSU: Overkill and expensive
Monitor: So crappy that video card is overkill

There are indeed several games where the i5 is defeated by Ryzen.

 

Conversely, many popular titles out there where no R5 or R7 yet smokes any i5...

 

But, the definition of 'smokes the i5' becomes a tad muddled when reveiwing some games' results, as often the i5 still fares quite well, despite i5's mere 4 cores...

(I do agree, however, even the i5's gaming days are numbered with it's mere 4 non-hyperthreaded cores....)

What would be a good case to have in order to travel with it? I would be moving around every week with this computer and I would want something convenient to travel with, that's why I went with the mini itx

At this point I don't care if it's mini itx, just as long as it's affordable and convenient to travel with. I would suppose it would make my first building experience easier with a more spacious rig anyways?

How about this one? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tsYWGX/bitfenix-case-bfcprm300kkwskrp

And yes, assembly in mini-ITX case may be pain.

The size, and therefore the amount of stuff you can have connected to it:

Hey there!

 

Could you fill out these questions so we can get a better understanding of your current situation?

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? 

What software do you intend on using on the computer? 

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? 

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? 

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?

Will you be overclocking?

Location for online shopping/shipment/prices?

How many monitors are you planning to use?

Do you need peripherals? OS?

Any particular reason why you are upgrading?

 

 

If you don't mind, we'll be using https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ to compose a parts list and find the best prices for you.
