I was wondering if this PC is good enough not only for the price but for running games such as Assassin creed Unity, Skyrim the elder scrolls V, and Battlefield V in med to high settings (1080P)
Also any tips to lower the price to 550$ while still maintaining performance will be much appreciated
 
I swapped to a SSD because it will make your PC run a lot snappier. You can add a 1tb HDD later.
Here's the build... just 1$ over 550$, but should perform better, added a case too.
Also don't skimp on the PSU with the RX 580... you'll need a 550W decent quality unit for it.
