Motto: Rep me for chocky milk
for this kind of a budget, i wouldnt go intel CPU.

I would get a ryzen 5 3600 ( A very solid cpu ) and a board to match (B450) (180 bucks)
If you are able to get parts second hand, then even better. I would go with a used gtx 1060 if possible. can be picked up for around 150 bucks.
Memory i would get 16GB of DDR4 to go with what the board chosen supports, most likely 2666 - 3200MHZ ( 60 bucks second hand, 110 new ish )
I would then pick up a 240gb ssd and a 500GB hdd, both can be found for relatively cheap.
Case, get whatever suits your needs and what the board fits, look at some reviews online though.
PSU i would get a 500W. Should be plenty for the hardware being used. DONT GET THIS SECOND HAND OR A CHEAP ONE, A GOOD 500W PSU CAN BE HAD FOR AROUND 90 BUCKS NEW.

Use PC partpicker to make sure all parts chosen are compatible.

If you have money spare, you can spend more on possibly a better GPU or peripherals, case ETC.
