Would anyone be able to build me a gaming computer for about $600
I only need to know what parts I should get
Its solely for gaming so I need to know which parts to get to optimise my gameplay
Ill be looking to play Pubg and Csgo mostly
I would like the theme to be Black and red for the case and design if possible and maybe glow

I dont have my peripherals set up either so if you guys could maybe do that too im looking to spend about 200 on them max so all in all around $800

What peripherals do you need? Monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, etc?

I put the Phanteks Eclipse P400 as a placeholder. Wait until the Eclipse P300 is up for sale and get that instead for $60, it's a cut down P400 and an easy way to save $20. They're already for sale in the UK but I haven't seen them on any US site yet, should be up soon though. See if you can get a used GTX 970 for $150-160, that would be a better GPU than the 1050Ti but the 1050Ti is fine if you can't find a GTX 970 or don't want to buy used.

Would an i5 not be better than the AMD Ryzen ??

No, and not obtainable within your budget anyway.

Is it really worth getting a 250GB SSD and not a big HDD?
I mean like you could get a 120GB SSD For OS (£39)
And a 500GB HDD for other stuff (£40)

Yes. 250GB is fine for OS and a couple of games. It's easy enough to add an HDD when he has a spare $40-50. He's only going to save like $15-20 by dropping to a 120GB SSD anyway.
