Hi all, I'm looking for a £500 GBP build for my brother for Christmas, mainly playing PUBG, tower is the only item needed no windows as I have the discs for that. Monitors and other items will be bought after the tower is built, thanks for looking, and thank you if you can help

Just under budget and should do the job fine.

Can always chuck another stick of RAM in and you will want to add in a SSD when you can or.

No hard drive but if it's just normal programs and PUBG then 120GB SDD should do it for now, add in a HDD later.

Don't get the XFX XT, it's not a good quality PSU and you can get a Seasonic unit for a similar price. I also wouldn't bother with an A320 chipset motherboard at all.

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 3 1200 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor (£97.99 @ Aria PC)
Motherboard: MSI - B350M PRO-VDH Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard (£64.95 @ Ebuyer)
Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory (£66.24 @ Aria PC)
Storage: PNY - CS1311 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£39.47 @ Amazon UK)

Video Card: Palit - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB StormX Video Card (£128.99 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Fractal Design - Core 1100 MicroATX Mini Tower Case (£24.95 @ Amazon UK)
Power Supply: SeaSonic - ECO 430W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply (£45.58 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £506.16

Better motherboard with B350 chipset so you can overclock. If you need it under £500, drop the HDD for now, just use the SSD and add the HDD later. Faster RAM since Ryzen favours fast RAM, 2133MHz is pretty pitiful. You could get 3000MHz for an extra £10 or so, but 2666MHz is fine to keep the price a bit lower.
Alternative case if you want;

You can get the windowed version for like a pound less if you'd prefer.
