Best PC for around $500

Got a buddy of mine wanting a new rig built, but here is the catch. This dude wants to hook it into his TV. So for him this is like a streaming/gaming device.

  1. The GPU needs an HDMI output.
  2. Please include at least a boot SSD.
  3. We already have a copy of windows covered.
  4. No monitor or keyboard/mice needed either.

Motherboard has two HDMI outputs and the CPU/APU has the Radeon Vega 11 GPU built in. You can always add a better GPU when time to upgrade.

Dumb question, a lot of the others are slapping ryzen 5 vs 3 in here. will that performance even be notable in game?
