There are a gezillion combinations/permutations possible. You just have to pick the parts that fit your buget and put them together. Here is a 5 part instruction from the Geek when he built a system a few years ago. The parts list may be different today but the basic principles still apply.

When you have questions as to the compatibility and usefulness of the parts you picked, post back with the list and we'll look it over.

And to reiterate, times, technology and prices change rapidly. In fact too fast.

HDD could pose a problem, sata or ssd but a sata 1tb drive might suffice.

Another point is the purpose of the build, everyday PC usage or gaming?

A game build might break your budget!
