Hello I want to Build my first PC and I have a budget for $500 and plan to play mostly OW, RL, LoL, PUBG, and some future games coming out. With that being said here is the build I cane across with: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] What do you guys think? Is this a pretty good build for what I want to play or should I change somethings?

Thanks in advance everyone!

Motto: We love you Misses, forever in our hearts.
I personally would spent a little more to get a better case, just my thoughts.

But just incase someone on here wants to build or can build something alot better please tell us more information...

What is your budget and currency? (Pound sign does not work normally, use GBP abbreviation)
Do you need a monitor?
Do you need a keyboard?
Do you need a mouse?
Do you need an operating system?
What will you use the PC for?

the build won't last a few years and i doubt it will run PUBG stable on any settings tbh. I'd save a bit more if you want it to be able to run PUBG and I'd go with a AMD fX-6300 or 8350 if you're on a really tight budget, that way you can also get DDR3 ram although it's on a dead socket you'll probably have more performance than what you're currently gonna go with. I have a 8350 and 1050ti Overclocked and I can run everything I've tried including PUBG on max settings with a decent FPS

Ignore that completely. AM3+ would be a horrible option.

A little over budget, but you get a better motherboard and an SSD with this.

I suggested AM3+ as the OP isn't thinking about upgrading for a few years.

There is nothing to even consider upgrading on am3/+

that's my point exactly, you can get a fx 8350 for what like £90. I have that and a 1050ti overclocked and so far i've been able to run everything at max settings with atleast 60fps excluding PUBG which can drop to nothing lower than 50. so the OP wants a cheap PC where they won't have to upgrade for a few years, the RAM is like 1/2 the price and i know from experience that it is really good for the price
