I aim to use this rig mainly for gaming/streaming as well as photo editing. I do some photography as well as a general interest in streaming games like Motorsport Manager, PUBG, etc.
I understand I could get a cheaper case but the reason for the Define Mini C is the aesthetics. I am looking at a Phanteks P400 or a Zalman Z9 Neo but would rather stick to the Mini C.
Anything I could improve on the performance of this rig and hopefully save a tad bit?

The main thing I can see to drop the price is to change to a 6-core CPU. Unless you know that 8 cores will be useful, I'd suggest that a 6-core will be nearly the same for most of what you're doing. The only other reasonable suggestion for decreasing the price that I can see is to change the WiFi adapter.
Other than that, your list looks pretty good to me. I'd probably change the PSU to https://pricespy.co....t.php?p=2160334 which might last slightly longer, but the one you've got will work fine too. Ideally you'd get a larger SSD, but that'd raise the price a bit.

The 8 core may help with streaming , and editing if you OC .
But for gaming the R5 1600
The mb is questionable. It uses a three phase power design with 6 output mosfets
I have the Gigabyte AB350m gaming3. . Four honest phases , and doing fine
The M.2 drive is slow . The corsair force or samsung 960 are faster especially in the 256 gig sizes
I used the define mini C too . Amazing case with ,almost, too many options . It could be 4-5 cm shorter and taller without all the options I am not going to use .
