My actual PC is: i3-7100, 8GB DDR4... and that's about it. I have been planning an upgrade for a while now, since I use this PC for some games that can run under the actual config (CS:GO, LoL, etc..) But I want to play other games such as BF1, Apex Legends, WWZ, etc... And for that purpose I have designed in my head an upgraded Rig that only conserves the processor.

It goes: i3-7100, 16 DDR4 RAM, 480GB SSD, RX 570 4GB, 500 Watts PSU, this is the motherboard that I own. The thing is, would you change something that I am planning on buying? Just that it stays on the same budget. I don't plan on running COD Warzone at ultra 4k graphics, but I do want to run game smoothly enough at 1080p Mid-High-ish config. And is all my components compatible with each other?

Thanks in advance.

Should be alright, although I would avoid the SeaSonic S12iii PSU since it's not actually manufactured by Seasonic despiting having the name.

$5 more gets you a Corsair CX550 80+ Bronze which is more trusted and has 50w more, which should leave more room for upgrades down the road.

Just keep in mind, your dual-core CPU may get overwhelmed by demanding games like battlefield leading to high usage and stutter.
