    I’m looking for a good budget build pc for gaming. I’d like to run Gta with mods. Budget of about $500 . Any help would be appreciated.

    I did it but I'd like better. I'm always on a real tight budget.

    I started with an Asus P8H77V-LE mobo / i7 2600 CPU combo, used on ebay - I picked that up for £115 (yes pounds).
    I found a Zotac GTX 760 Amp edition GPU for £75 (bargain) and went budget on the case.
    The GPU will do high to very high settings but not at 60fps. Mostly 40 - 50 which is still 50% faster than my Xbox One.
    I got a new PSU with bronze rating and an SSD. All in all I paid about £450.

    Pounds to dollars - £450 is around $630, so your $500 budget can be done but you have some serious bartering to do and you'll be looking for used hardware.

    I do have GTA and have tried some mods but I could do with a better GPU now. It wouldn't manage graphical mods for sure.
    In fact after installing mods I turned the graphic settings down a bit.

    Two potatoes, a mouse on steroids, a paper clip and a bunch of self inflicted depression can make a beast of a computer.
