Default Budget build

Hello I am bought a old computer thinking I could upgrade it to something but the bios is really old with no updates, SOOOO I want to build a computer but something That is wallet friendly but once more money rolls in I can easily upgrade it and it has a wide range of compatibility,, so it will be easy to find a new part. I am looking for an all in one PC, okay gaming light photo and video editing etc.
Thanks.

So I'm assuming it'll be mATX. Will this be now or later?

Well- "PP" is our resident build expert- but I will attempt to help by trying to define the parameters a bit. "Gaming" could mean playing solitaire or it could mean playing the newest Battlefield multiplayer. So whats "gaming light" mean to you ? Do you have a OS ( win7 or win10), a mouse, Keyboard, monitor,etc. If the answer is yes and both the old harddrive and the case are fully functional - then you would need a CPU,GPU, MOBO, PSU, and RAM.

Assumptions based on the other thread would be OP has everything already and needs a platform. This is pretty doable considering what we're working with from the other thread which is sad to say pretty junk. If the OS is 7 or 10 it'd be pretty easy to swap over the old drive or clone it to an SSD.

You can take the GPU off if you want to get something later. It does have an IGP that is usable and quicker than what you currently have. Has everything you need minus the HDD.

If you got case and hard drive I jsut did a build for 566, but i already had ram I will add links to parts, pretty decent build with a RX 550 Ryzen, gigabyt and 8gigs ram. 1k WTT power supply. I mean its not no gaming system but it can play some games
I ordered a case and also dvd drive, I assume your using your old one if any, and you stated case and hard drive. so its 500ish, and it was bought during Xmas sales, so osme parts might be more or less.
Mother board
x GIGABYTE GA-AB350-GAMING 3 (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
