Mother Board: Asroc B450 Pro4

CPU: Ryzen 3 2200G

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin 3000

You really need an ssd, even a low capacity one. The drives should be compatible if they are using sata, but if they are using IDE they aren't.

Id recommend around a 128 gb ssd because they are pretty cheap, but will improve your experience tremendously.

I gave you a Ryzen 5 2600 6 core, compared to the R3 4 core and its only $65 more than the R3. I added a Samsung 860 Evo SSD that has 500gb of storage for your OS. All costing about $500. (I added in your purchased parts, they dont count towards the rest. also they're not the real parts, i just guessed off of what you said)

In my experience the Ryzen APU's don't work well in gaming. I have the R5 2400G and the performance was so bad even on low 720p that I had to buy a GPU.

Did you download the drivers? He has a 1050ti, so that shouldn't be a problem. If you watched Season 7 of Scrapyard wars luke was almost screwed because he forgot to install the APU drivers for his A10

Maybe, IDK. I have a RX 580 8GB so I'm good now.

only catch here is the HHD. i need to crack open the ancient PC i have to see if they are SATA. would it be all the same to get a smaller SSD and a mild size HHD for storage only if they are not SATA?

You can get a 1TB WD Blue for like $40

So yes, that would work.

I'd recommend you just wait till you need the space then get the HDD or kick off with a 1 TB at that point SSDs are just so worth it,

The PSU looks kinda sketchy, You could use it but if it starts to give you problems I recommend the Corsair CX650M.

Let me quickly break it down for you. M.2 is a standard type of ssd. There are 2 types sata and nvme. NVME drives have better performance but are more expensive. Sata drives are the same speed as 2.5 inch drives, cost the same, but you don't need wires because they just plug into the slot. NVME drives have 1 hole in their pins. Sata have 2.

it was used in a CoolerMaster Cosmos 1000 i believe as a workhorse. nothing else was really salvageable. 

What were the specs in the machine?
