Can I get some help with my first PC build please?

Hello Everyone,

I am looking to build my own PC because buying one just seems very expensive. I am looking to build a decent gaming PC. My budget is $500. The games that I plan on playing are Skyrim, sword coast legends, maybe star wars battlefield. I am not sure how demanding those games are, but playing on the highest settings is not super important to me. As long as it looks okay and plays smoothly I am happy.

If anyone can give me a hand that would be fantastic! I am new to building computers and it is very overwhelming, but I figure this would be a great place to get some ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Goes a little over-budget but will be well worth.
