I would study the art of Custom builds a bit ducky, you can get a solid gaming system on Ebay for
500 to 650 and learn, by the time its time to replace that you will be an expert.

He doesn't need 800. You don't need 800 with 2 gpu he has.
He has a 500$ budget and a quality gpu for dual gpu is way way beyond his budget. 450W is fine if he will stick with this gpu. If he thinks he will ever go to the big gpu models(1080) he should get a 550w.
Yeah but SHvFI its a 1050 GTX just clocking the cards with anything under an 800 is going to cause him issues
and forget clocking the CPU for sure.

It will not have issues overclock a 1050 on a 450w quality psu. I guarantee you it will not.
Also he can't overclock with a h110 motherboard and the 6500 he is getting. He will need another 100$ easily.

I just got dual 1070's not long a go, I wasnt "just" taking into consideration the Card, but the setup
and you have to admit with a 450w PSU he will have very little wiggle room
His pc in full load will not draw more than 200w in no way. He could even go with a 350 and he would have way more. 75w for gpu and 65w for cpu. Rest will be left for everything else that don't use much power.

Back to Budget builds, LoL! I would bug you when i graduated and land a nice job!

@SHvFl has gotten this system down, I would heed his words!

BTW OP, what games are you planning on running? would the 970 be cheaper? They both scored the same on cpuboss
Games like League of Legends, Overwatch, Rainbow six: siege, etc. Those are the games I have in mind as of now.
