    Avoid the AMD FX CPU, it wasn't very good even for its time and is far worse now. For a lower-end CPU you would be better off with a Ryzen 3 CPU than the FX.

    Ive always been super conservative with how much I spend on computer hardware. I just build up a PC for very cheap that runs fairly well and able to use 1080p resolution with a few graphical settings compromises.

    Here are my recommendations:
    Ryzen 5 1400: @$130.00, it is faster and more efficient than the FX8300. I got an I3 8100 which is the same speed and price but regret it due to the Intel hardware having inflated prices and degraded Motherboard features.
    16GB of DDR4 2400 or 2600 RAM; is 2x faster than DDR3, but its very expensive. You might want to get 8GB now and save a memory slot for a second stick later. its anough to do almost anything on Windows 10, which rarely slows down or crashes when low on memory. A PCIe x4 SSD hard drive will mitigate page file slowdown.
    Radeon video cards: like the RX570 and RX470: are a better value right now than the Geforce cards. AMD has slashed prices and will likely dominate the budget market for the rest of the year. Ghz per Ghz they run faster that Geforce cards in DX12.
    Power supply: dont skimp on the PSU or your hardware will die sooner than later.
    Motherboard; Plan out the hardware you want first, then get the appropriate board that's compatible with what you get now and is scale-able for future upgrades. I usually check for CPU, extra memory slots and video card slots and clearance then also check to make sure it has other features like SATA3, USB3.0 ports, and M.2 PCIe x4 ports.
    Hard drive: I recommend splurging on an M.2 PCIe x4 SSD. The 500Gb or 1TB drives are a great deal and are lightning fast compared to 3.5" mechanical drives and 2-4x faster than SATA3 SSDs. Hard drives are the main thing slowing down OS operations across all tasks on a PC and spending a little more here is worth every penny.
    Windows 10: is fine but be careful if you chose to use Windows 7, like I did. Its not compatible with new hardware and I had to migrate away from it when I build my new PC.

    I have a FX-6300. Works fine for a 5 year old system, but for a new system it is not worth it.
    @Ewanc ‘s suggestion is about right.

    There really isn't anything good below $100. Ive looked over the benchmark results for the FX-8300 and on paper it seems like it cant be beat for the price, especially for multi-core tasks like playing this game. Unfortunately, its really only as fast as a 4 core current gen CPU. The main thing is its 6 year old tech and is using the old CPU socket AM3+, so there's no upgrade path. AM3+ mother boards wont have needed features like PCIe 3.0 and SATA III that new video cards and SSDs need to run full speed. I made this mistake the last time I upgraded.

    Here's a comparison of the 2, along with the Ryzen 5 2600, which is the best bang for the buck on the market. Its literally 2X as fast as the other budget CPUs for an extra $30.

    I have a 1050 TI, it seems to work fine for most games even beamng, Its not the most powerful card though.

    What's the motherboard?
    All parts seem fine except for the CPU (get at least an i3 or Ryzen 3)
    You may want to consider throwing in an SSD, the boot times are so awesome.

    For a mainboard I recommend the Asus B350-Plus because it's relatively inexpensive and has everything you'd need as a gamer. For a PSU, really any 550W one will be good but I recommend part or fully modular ones from Corsair and Bequiet. I have a Cooler Master N400 case so if you need a case get that one. Very practical and a reasonable 70 bucks.
    Storage wise if you can afford it a 500GB M.2 SSD like the Samsung 970 Evo is a great idea but if you don't absolutely need to boot in five seconds you can cut the cost in half with an 860 Evo which is a SATA SSD, and I'd combine it with a 2 Terabyte WD Blue or a faster WD Red HDD.

    Well, I have an old Crucial MX 512 GB SSD from 2014 and that combined with an external 2 TB HDD (USB 3.0) has been enough for me so far. I do plan on getting an M.2 SSD at some point since I have that port free on my MB.

    I have NVME and some copper heatsinks, still airflow is needed to keep it from slowing down with bigger data transfers. Keeping 42 or under at idle is good, but going to 50 starts to show up for example in video recording.

    50 happens really easily when loading game if there is no airflow as M2 slots tend to be in hot places usually. I have two slots on Skylake rig (GB Z170X-UD3) and lower one is useless place as GPU prevents all airflow there, so it gets slowdowns.

    At upper slot I can keep it at 42 max when gaming.

    Reported temp is then just some temp, chips themselves can spike up to 100C easily without heatsink and airflow. Of course newer ones are better in this regard, but heat is something to consider.

    What about Windows 8.1 then?

    Not really compatible with 8th gen intel or newer, but can work. Used to be compatible, but some shady contracts removed all old drivers that used to work with 8th gen hardware, kinda purposely they made it incompatible.

    What I'm getting for my M.2 to combat heat is an Icybox heatsink plus some 11W/(m*K) thermal pads since the ones that come with the heatsink are about 4W/(m*K).
    Sorry for the late reply, I haven't checked the forums in a week.
