Hi guys im new in this platform. I want to build my first budget pc and i have a budget of $500 and i am residing in Canada which means that prices are different from other places. I made a build just under $500 and i need your help and advices if there are other ways to improve my build. Just a note that a did not included any pc case and a monitor yet, but feel free to add some suggestions. Thanks!

ps: ill save up for a gpu, so if you have any gpu thats worth with the money and goes well with the build, please feel free to mention some!

Here is my build https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/BQvBrV

Switch to the Ryzen 5 1600 AF. SPECIFICALLY THE AF VERSION it’s 85$ on Amazon 6cores and I believe 12 threads.
