I've been using PC Part Picker to create a fairly inexpensive PC for some low level gaming (Subnautica, TF2, Civ 5, ect.) however I'm worried about the power supply and whether there will be any physical dimension restrictions. If this is a good build then I will upgrade RAM later when I have the money for it. I should also point out that I already have a keyboard, mouse, and monitor, and this build came out to be $255 on Amazon.

CPU:
Ryzen 3 2200G - With Vega 8 intergrated graphics and included cpu cooler -

Motherboard:
ASRock - B450M Pro4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard

RAM:
Patriot - 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) DDR4-2133

HDD:
Western Digital - Caviar Green 500 GB 3.5" 5400RPM

Case:
Rosewill - SRM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower Case

Power Supply:
CoolMax - 500 W ATX

also only 4GB of ram will probably not suffice, also for AMD cpus you put slowest (probably cheapest?) ram with only 2133MHz speed, Ryzens love faster rams, put 1 stick of 8GB of 3000MHz (RAM prices have gone down) and put another one in the future when you will have money.
Buy some higher quality psu brand, 500w is more than enough. Also I would suggest 240gb sata ssd over 500gb hdd anytime (similar price).

yes I fixated on what I saw as the biggest issue, the PSU. you need faster RAM, 3000Mhz should be the slowest to look at.
post your budget and let us see if we can throw a build or two your way

twice the RAM and a bit faster, SSD makes a huge difference in daily use speed, better PSU. 10 bucks more

I apologize, I didn't realize you suggested a power supply. I've changed it to that and now I just have one more question. Should I be worried about this compatibility note PC Part Picker is giving me?
  • The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.
