For a low-budget gaming PC, yeah for sure.

 

PSU might be super crappy though, so you'll probably have to replace that.

 

A PC like this would go great with something like a used GTX 970, RX 480/470/580/570, or GTX 1060 6GB

You don't need a big PSU

Desktop:

Delidded Core i7 4770K - GTX 1070 ROG Strix - 16GB DDR3 - Lots of RGB lights I never change

Laptop:

HP Spectre X360 - i7 8560U - MX150 - 512GB SSD - 16GB DDR4 - I lost my pen so I convince myself I don't need it

If you already own it or can get it for under $100, sure. Just toss in an SSD and a used RX 570/580.

Even at high settings you'll get around 65 fps with an rx 570 if I'm not mistaken.
