What do you guys think? This is to just play PUBG, and maybe a few racing games if possible. I need Windows, a case, gpu, psu, mobo, ram, SSD(preferred), HDD, and cpu.

I don't need a keyboard/mouse or montior.

You can put together a fair machine for $500 if you don't need the extras.
Hey, how come my two cents is only worth like a half a cent?

Well... you could.

GPU prices are currently nuts. And RAM and SSD prices have increased. Hitting that $500 mark takes some serious super shopper skills these days. In fact, most of the effort in a $500 build these days is probably looking for coupons, deals, and sales.

You can do a Ryzen 3 1200 build with a 1050 Ti and DDR4-3000 for about $500, but I doubt you'll be able to squeeze a 240+ GB SSD in there.
Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

I would pass on the SSD for a $500 system. Put it towards a better CPU and/or GPU. SSDs aren't a game changer. I'll often swap my games from my SSD to my HDD and not notice any difference in playability. Load times, sure, but not much else.

I think once you get used to an SSD for Windows and your favorite games, it's hard to go back to a regular HDD. At least for me. But if we can't squeeze a SSD in the budget that's fine.
