Look at your used market, watch r/hardwareswap on reddit. If you get 100 posts on here you can use the forum classifieds.

r/buildapcsales is a good place to find sales on hardware.

 

For 200 buy a used dell optiplex or something of the like.

Any full system you buy at 200$ will probably bottleneck.

if the CPU side can't feed the GPU quickly enough, sure. but you gotta start somewhere

 

point being if you want to get a built PC going now, you work with what you have. by the time you're better off but still can't afford an entire build, you can upgrade certain parts again as you go

Play it smart, save up more money before you buy anything. Wait until you can buy all of the parts in one go, instead of slowly assembling the PC over time. Don't half ass it if you can.

My god, you got that card cheap. Cards down here are so god damn expensive. NZD$200 on sale for just an RX570. Anyway, try to find a cheaper old pre built. Old OptiPlexs are a good way to start. I'd suggest you try to look for a surplus one that Uni's or businesses are selling for low prices or even giving away for free.

Look for an old LGA 2011 workstation on ebay and upgrade the CPU if needed.

Uhhhhhh...that's actually a really good price on a 1060, if you're in the US on USD. I just sold my old one for $130 a few weeks back, so, yeah. Ya did good there.

 

$200 basically condemns you to the land of used workstations. Make sure that whichever one you buy has a PSU with an extra 6-pin PCI-E connector, or the ability to easily replace said PSU. And, of course, make sure it has enough room to fit your 1060. Which, still, damn, that's a deal. Are you sure it isn't broken and/or a Chinese fake?

Why? They just bought a GTX 1060 6GB, which outperforms the RX 470 anyway.

Look for a HP Z workstation or a Dell Precision T5500. They can take some monster CPU's for the price and ECC memory is dirt cheap. I have dual Zeon x5670's, 12 core and 24 thread with a memory capacity of over 300GB. That kind of system should be well within $200 :)

I frequently see used systems in working order for $200ish on the Facebook marketplace or Offerup.

Most have like a locked 4th gen i5 or an A10 / FX 6300 or somesuch in there, but frankly for the price, that will get you gaming with your 1060.

Is there anyway I could buy the intel xeon and put in a mother board is is more modern, or does it have to be older?

you'll need an LGA 2011 motherboard for that CPU, which most manufacturers don't make anymore.
