I made a list for you. Without the graphics card, it's less than $500 USD. However, with it, it's only $650. And you can get Windows 10 on Microsoft's website. I'd recommend you look at more than just list tho so you can get an idea of the best bang for your buck PC. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/K43GMZ

Use Steam OS

(Cause the promotion of using Windows 10 unactivated, altho better, is not allowed.)

The GPU is just any RX 580 8gb used from Ebay. I found this model new for 119.
