This is something which I would get in that budget, but others may have some better opinions.

Hello friend! I think your best bet is a ryzen 5 2600 cpu, with a b450 motherboard. You can get away with 8gb of (ddr4) ram, but if you decide to do that, make sure you get a 1x8 stick so you can add in another later on. I've seen some really good deals on a 500gb Samsung 860 evo floating around, I'd grab one of those too. Hope this helps!

 you can get cheaper value if you downgrade the motherboard to fit your budget more.

I think sjb has the right idea! As opposed to them, I didn't go with as much ram or as much ssd storage, but that's really up to you and your budget. The one thing I will say is depending on how much you'd like to over clock, you might not need a board as expensive as the tomahawk, you can get perfectly good ones for 70-80 bucks. 

Cheers
