Okay so i'm looking to buy a new PC to play most games at 1080p 60fps. My budget is £500 (GBP) i don't need any Peripherals or Monitors or even an Operating System as i have them already. The main games i'm looking to run currently are. PubG, CS:GO, Overwatch, GTA V, Call of Duty BO3 and some more older games like Left for dead & old Call of Duty games. I will use it for just general browsing aswell. My preferable colour scheme is Red & Black as thats what most of my setup is. Also if possible to have it pretty quite as i don't want something thats going to be very noisy.

If someone could help me out with this it would be much appreciated

I did a little research last night on youtube seeing how certain things perform and i came up with this [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]
i just want to get a say on this on whether or not its good for what i want it to do.

Edit: i noticed that the cpu i chose is only a Dual core and isn't really good enough for gaming so i changed it to an i5 7400 and removed the SSD for now. but its something i can pick up later to speed the pc up a little.

I don't really see it as a good trade off. Sure, the i5-7400 gets slightly faster single and multi core speeds, but you're also paying an extra £70 for a few FPS gains, which I would argue wouldn't be more than 3-5 FPS gains and even that's a stretch. An SSD first then getting an HDD makes more sense, as if you want to speed up your PC, you'll be installing the OS on the SSD. If you get an HDD first then SSD, you're going through the tribal process of moving it on a different drive (not something simply like click and drag to a new drive) or you end up formatting your drives and wiping the OS off so you can install it fresh under your SSD. It's better to just get an SSD with less storage for now, then grab an HDD that way you just plug it in, set it up and start downloading games onto it instead of a hassle of wanting an OS on an SSD at a later date.

The i3 puts you £50 over budget and makes no sense anyway. The G4560 would make more sense but youd still be £20 over budget with that. With the i5-7400, you're £100 over budget. That motherboard is pretty shitty. With the Ryzen 3 1200, you have a better motherboard and overclocking capabilities. Plus the R3 1200 is going to perform on par with or better than the i5-7400.

Definitely get the SSD first. You can reuse your old HDD(s) for now and add another HDD later if you want/need. SSD now to get your OS on and some other stuff. Don't get that tragic 64GB drive though. Get a 120/128GB SSD, that A Data one is a good choice
