hi! i'm thinking of builfing myself a student-budget pc

(here's the partpicker's list :
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xRdtFt )

for now i'm thinking of gaming on the vega graphics and eventually upgrading with a graphics card eventually when my gf and/or budget permits it.

on top of that, since i'm living in a small space with my gf i can't use a big-ass monitor so i was thinking of buying a portable monitor (like one of these : https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00CMKOVMO/?coliid=IFGX173NSVCYO&colid=2DZCSLEQSTU9K&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it )

so i was wondering about the internet's opinion and advice on my potential project, my ideal budget limit is 400$, 450$ (like it is now) is the absolute limit

thanks for the help in advance!




EDIT : i cheked around a bit and im wondering, is the ryzen 5 2400g a good upgrade? i checked a few videos of gaming on vega rx 11 and it looks to me like it can handle most games at low settings. assuming i eventually get a graphics card would it be more worth to get that APU considering some kind of "future-proofing"?
also thanks the for comments
 
If you need a PC instead of a gaming console then sure, that would work pretty well since that monitor is only 768p. I would recommend buying 2x4GB so you can utilize dual-channel memory for better performance. You can always sell that when you want to upgrade to 2x8GB. Plus, trying to add other sticks not bought in a kit won't always work.

I think You really should see if you can swing a 22 inch monitor and a wall mount, they're cheaper and better. If you're already using a desktop case (even a small one) the monitor itself is only 6 inches wider. The integrated graphics are plenty to play basic games on, or even fortnite on lowest graphics settings will work.

Otherwise I don't see any problem with the build. Yeah that display lines up with what the integrated graphics will support for medium settings.

we have a projector in the room, its the screen for media consumption and my ps4, the intent was to sell my ps4 and plug the mini itx to the projector but use a tiny screen when my gf want to use her apple tv, that's why i chose a tiny ass screen, she doesn't want another screen in the room
