I wanted to build a cheap and "just as good" gaming computer build. This is my build that I worked on so far. Any constructive criticism on the build is appreciated too. I also need a nice cheap HDD around $40-$50 dollars that has a nice amount of gigabytes, more than 200gb would be nice.

AROUND $500 GAMING PC BUDGET

TOTAL: around $475 without any added fees

I know I forgotten to include the OS but I rather worry about that later.

Everything looks okay. You will not find a hdd for under $100 unless you do a lot of searching. Prices have gone way up because of flooding of factories in Thailand and they will not come back down for a few months.

Yeah. If you can avoid it, dont buy a new HDD. If you MUST then buy the cheepest thing possible. Prices have gone up astronomically. 200%+ in some cases.
