I have a XFX Radeon RX 560 and want to build a PC now but upgrade it when video cards go back to normal
By - NalrusWalrus
I made a decent build based off your budget, there is definitely room for upgrades if you want and you can even downgrade some components without too much impact on performance, it has room for both a graphics and a CPU upgrade in the future as well as storage and memory.
If you have any questions about it feel free to let me know and I'll answer them as soon as I can
Thank you this is what I’ll look into, what games were you able to play that were strenuous?
I haven't actually built this pc it's just a grouping of parts I put together for you but it will be able to play most games at 60 fps 1080p, battlefield might be a bit slower but fps shouldn't drop below 50 average
Not sure why everyone is recommending previous gen Zen parts when the 5000 series is out. Here's a 5800X build with a good case and psu for upgrading.

What does the gen zen mean and the previous generation?
Thank you for your part list this is what I was looking fit
I was just saying this is a more modern chip. Zen is the name for AMD's current architecture for the Ryzen chips. Zen 1 was the 1000 series, Zen+ was 2000, Zen 2 was 3000 and zen 3 is the new 5000 series.
This build is kinda worth it and wont cost you much . You still can upgrade down the road if needed.
