If you can't get a console that cheap, what kind of performance are you expecting from a PC at this price? For a decent PC, you will be spending at least around $600, and this may not include the cost of a decent, well designed tower among other things.

You need a larger budget!

the main issue is the fairly small SSD. the 4-core CPU and 570 are more than plenty for the games you want (and most other games as well) to reach 60FPS at 1080p.. I'd add a 1 or 2 TB HDD later for more room for additional games. the A320 mobo will work okay, but won't allow overclock and can't upgrade as well as a B450 would. Overall, other than adding an HDD, this is a dispoable computer...use it for a couple years, then toss it out

Look on ebay for used parts and it is very doable.
I got an fx8350 for $50, and a radeon r9 fury for $100. You can pick up a high end mobo that is dated to this technology for around $100 as well.
That would essentially leave you needing ram, a psu, and a case for the other $50. Ddr3 is pretty cheap and a used case is generally pretty cheap too. That would leave you lacking a psu which you might want to splurge on and get something fairly capable.

Either the Home OEM or Professional OEM keys

the way it works: you download the Win 10 installer from Microsoft and use it to create a USB flash stick (min 4.5 GB in size).

when you install windows, the version that is installed is the one you put in the code for. (so a Home key installs Home, a pro key installs Pro, an Enterprise Key installs Win 10 Enterprise).

Also a 1 TB HDD how much would be ? and the difference B450 and A320 in price is big ?

those two wold work, teh B450 would allow upgrades to any other Ryzen chipo with a BIOS upgrade, up through thisd summer's 4000 series chips.

teh 240 GB SSD included will hold the OS and 2-4 modern AAA games pretty easily, so you should add a larger spinny HDD for more storage, instead of a 500 GB SSD

like these?

do it yourself. Its not hard to do. everything only fits the right way. You just need a phillips head screwdriver and the ability to push a cartridge into a slot

and there are literally thousands of 'how to build a pc' step by step videos on youtube
