Hi, so i'm looking to build new pc for around 500$, i found some components i would like to use for my new pc but don't know if they are compatable. This is my first time doing something like this so i need someone elses thoughts about configuration.

Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Motherboard: Gigabyte AB350M-DS3H V2
GPU: Aours Rx570 or ASUS Rx580 deppends on the budget
Ram: any 8gb 3200mh for now, in plan to buy another one soon
Ssd: any sata 3 for like 50 bucks doesn't matter
Looking for any budget case with like 500W i think will be enough.

Write me if you know are they compatable, any tips ant that stuff :)

Sorry for bad english, not my primary language:giggle:

Welcome to PCHF Gavra29,

Sorry but not doable for that budget, the GPU alone would cost more than half of the budget and there has been no allowance made for a Windows licence.

Looking for any budget case with like 500W i think will be enough.
The PSU is the most important component in a computer, pretty much like the human heart it needs to be strong and efficient and if it is not things fall over.

You can check here for the sort of build that you can get for circa $500

Asus Rx580 4gb
500w with case
Golden rule, never ever purchase a PSU that comes bundled with a case, in a nutshell, they are garbage and are the quickest way to ruin your hardware and starting with the GPU which being the most power hungry device will fail first.

An RX480 requires the system to be powered by a minimum of a 500W PSU that has at least 33 amps on the +12V rail, you wont get that sort of performance from any PSU that ships bundled with a case, Antec and Corsair which have been proven case and PSU providers for years did at one time sell some of their lower end cases with one of their PSUs fitted and even though they were not intended for gaming type rigs you knew that you could trust them, neither company do this these days because of how demanding add on video cards can be for power and that comes at a cost, out of the box new demanding GPUs such as yours need clean, stable and efficient power none of which you will get from a cheap generic PSU that has been imported from you know where.
