PLEASE give pointers.
I have no knowledge of amd's cpu. But all I can say is that it is a solid build. Maybe search some info for the cpu you have versus an intel core i3. Also the gtx 1050 ti and 1050 came out already but may be sold out. other then that this is a solid build.
A few questions:
Do you have windows?
Are you looking for an upgrade path? AMD processors don't have one until Zen comes out.
The Geforce GTX 1050 and 1050 ti beat the RX460.
Do you have a monitor?
Are your plans for free sync or sync going forward?
What resolution will you want to game at? 1080p?
It would work but you are setting yourself to build a PC with a dead socket that isn't supported anymore. Also, the CPU is beaten in gaming by the i3-6100 which can be later upgraded to a more powerful CPU.
As such, if you could afford about $30 more, I would recommend this as a much better overall PC both for out of the box performance but also with a much better upgrade path.

I would go with this build OP. Far better to go up to the rx470 than have an SSD as an SSD can always be added later.
I already have a monitor and windows. I do plan to game at 1080p. Im not sure what free-sync is.
I am sorry to say that I dont have a gaming pc yet. i have just did alot of research of pc parts. if you go to youtube and search up geekawhat or cultamush ( not sure if i said their names correctly). They do amazing budget and highend builds and tell you what performance you should get. they have done an $550 budget build this month.
Thanx for all of the build suggestions!
This is a great 500 dollar pc. The only thing that really could make this better is an ssd, or for about 6 more dollars, dual channel ram. Other than that, this is about the best you can get!
