nice build!

The primary idea was to build a PC that could run VMs and cs:go.

This is my first build in years, so for many parts I just chose the most popular on pcpartpicker.

Ryzen 2200G: I'm definitely waiting for next ryzen, meanwhile this CPU is cheap and capable to run cs:go.

MSI B450: I'm not going to overclock. Good reviews. Couldn't buy msi b450 carbon ac.

RAM: 16GB for VMs. I've heard that fast memory is good for ryzen with integrated GPU.

SSD: already had it.

CASE: known for it's cable management. I hope it will last for years.

PSU: gold certified, modular and cheaper than nzxt

WiFi: couldn't buy motherboard with integrated WiFi

So if next ryzen with integrated GPU is powerful enough for 1080p gaming I will upgrade easily. Otherwise it will be discrete GPU, something like rx 570 or 1050 ti.

Some improvements, get a graphics card, use 4-8 gb of ram instead. the case is too expensive, could of gotten a cheaper case to get a better graphics card/cpu. The powersupply is good in general but not for budget builds. I understand your going to upgrade it in the future but its not going to be able to do much until you actually get a graphics card.

4 gigabytes of ram in 2019..? Also, I think he did good with the case even though I loathe NZXT (airflow reasons), but when I first built my PC I used a cheap CoolerMaster case and it was horrible and I had to transfer the system over twice until I got a case that was actually capable of what I needed and looked nice.

On the other hand, the poster might not be gaming on the machine, or may only be playing light/old/web games. Which would make a graphics card a pointless purchase.

use 4-8 gb of ram

I would have to agree the RAM choice seems odd, but it is entirely possible the poster's software requirements favor RAM over CPU and GPU power. Even a quadcore with 8 gigs of RAM can run a small virtual machine or two, more VMs with more RAM (RAM is your biggest limitation). So there are situations (albeit specific ones) where the RAM choice is logical.

From my testing and experience, no casual user needs more than 8 gigs of RAM. 4 is even workable with Linux (and presumably BSD, although I have not tested it), but certainly pushing it into swapping territory with most desktops and applications. I wouldn't necessarily recommend 4 gigs for Windows 10.

the case is too expensive, could of gotten a cheaper case to get a better graphics card/cpu. The powersupply is good in general but not for budget builds

The two things that would last the longest over PC many rebuilds are probably the case (as long as it holds enough drives) and a good PSU. I would definitely justify spending a premium on those two, even for "budget" builds (which this may not be).

I understand your going to upgrade it in the future but its not going to be able to do much until you actually get a graphics card.

That's definitely assuming it's a gaming build. It might be a workstation, or it could be a poorly balanced gaming build.
