New PC Build.

So I just moved from Xbox and PS4 gaming to PC Gaming as I feel now that PC is just better in general, where you can upgrade either your CPU or GPU and still be able to run games for longer than you can with updated Xbox's and PS4's, and its much cheaper also.

I got given a PC, and while I'm very greatful for it, I feel it isn't very good in this day and age, here are some of the specs I know:
CPU: Intel 1037U 2 Cores 1.8GHz.

GPU: Nvidia GTX 750ti 2GB
RAM: 8gb of unknown ram.

 

I know the specs aren't very good on this, and as I'm just getting into PC Gaming as a whole, I don't want to spend an incredible amount as I'll like to learn about PC's more as I need to upgrade etc, I have a budget around £400-£500 and will be purchased around Black Friday for extra deals etc.

Here is one of the PC's I was looking at, but am unsure of whether it'll last a decent while or not:
CPU: AMD FX-8350 4GHz.

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti 4GB DDR5

RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz.
Storage: 1TB HDD 7200RPM.

 

Any help on building a PC around a £400-£450 GBP - ($500-$575 USD) budget around Black Friday would help me tons, and I'd be forever greatful, thank you.

Fx 8xxx series is famous for it's heat ND it's power consumption. Theres no point in upgrading  to such an ancient platform. You'll be better off going with something like this.

Even 8 high clocked pile-driver cores cannot keep up with 4 zen cores.

Appreciate this a lot, how long do you think this could last? Playing games such as Fortnite, CS:GO, PUBG, GTA and other "high" demanding games?

This PC should do pretty well (around 60fps in most of the games at mid-high settings)
