Hey guys, I want to build a pc for around $500 to run games like Overwatch, CSGO, Pubg. It's not really for intense gaming, but I want to have something I can play these games alright. Prefer 1920x1080 when I play, but I don't expect full 60 fps high settings on this rig. Thanks guys!

I'd maybe swap the 16GB of RAM for a 580 8GB. You can always throw in another kit later, IMO.

In my opinion, the ram will make a bigger difference than the GPU, especially if you use chrome
