Need help on a budgeted first Gaming PC

Hi, I've been an avid gamer for quite sometime but haven't had the luxury to get a PC and been stuck on Notebooks/Laptops I'm wanting to change this with a basic Gaming Rig that I can upgrade part by part later on.

So my goal is to build a nice and efficient PC purely for playing games (not streaming/editing yet) with friends. However since I want to upgrade later on to a PC that can play everything on max and stream, etc. I'd like for this computer to be capable of being upgraded later on so if it's possible I would appreciate a parts list that would work for my current goal and budget (mid-tier gaming) that could be compatible with later additions to match my future goals (high-tier gaming that can stream)

Budget: 500

Location: United States

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming and Skype, I want to be able to play any game up to recent on at least medium with a decent framerate if possible

Games I'd like to be able to play at highest settings and fps possible: Witcher 3, GTA V, Metal Gear Solid V, DayZ, Dark Souls 2

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): I do need a monitor and keyboard but I'll factor that out personally, however since a monitor can be used even if I upgrade the computer I'd appreciate any monitor suggestions that would be a "keeper"

Operating System required: Not needed.

Thank you all very much for your time and help!

do not buy too many problems, some games wont run on dual cores, the gpu is bottlenecked. the motherboard is overkill,and the case sucks. i like HDD choice
