Need Opinion & Suggestion On Budget Gaming Mini PC - i3 6100 x GTX 1050 Ti

I'm planning to build a budget pc for gaming. I have no plan on playing recent high-end game, but i expect some titles like bf 1, gta v, & kerbal space program would run smooth on my machine (does medium settings look nice enough?). And i don't know if it best to aim for 30fps or 60fps. Other than that, i mostly will play old games (for nostalgic purpose) like sim city 3000, railroad tycoon, rct, pirates (and a lot of games before 2004).

It is purely for gaming since i already have another machine for everything other than gaming.

My budget is in $500-ish based on this site price (hardware prices in my country tend to go 1.2-1.4 times higher than this site).

Please kindly evaluate my specifications, do i need to go higher on some area or lower:

I would get a cheaper SSD as paying 95 bucks for a 250gb is crazy. Some good options

Also take into consideration that ram faster than 2133 will be downclocked with that motherboard, it will still work.
