Welcome to the forums!

Here's a link to the the exact computer I used to play KSP on, and it was more than adequate. It's 550$ currently but I got it on sale awhile back for a bit less than that. Meet's or exceeds all your requirements.

I honestly wouldn't buy that. The processor is from the old line of AMD CPUs that is pretty bad at single core performance and it is a reduced power notebook chip meant to fit into a fancy small case, which means it is more expensive for less power. The GPU is also integrated and therefore somewhat limited, although that is mostly not the deciding factor for KSP.

With that budget a solution with a Pentium G4560 or Ryzen 3 1200/1300x and a dedicated graphics card like a 1050 ti would be decidedly more powerful.

Umm...did you actually read the specs? It has a dedicated gpu. An AMD Radeon R9 360 2GB DDR5.

The guy asked for a 500 dollar computer that plays KSP so I linked him the one I used to have and use since I can personally vouch for it handling KSP just fine. I also played GTA5 and Fallout 4 on it so it was pretty decent for a budget PC.

Of course you could build something better for less by hand picking parts, and the OP should do that if he had the time and patience. I'm assuming he needs a decent comp now, not a great one later; like I did at the time.

:/ Well. I'll try to find some pretty Well computers in my price range. But thanks for pointing that out about the processor.

Ok, I missed that, but that is also questionable because the unique selling point of those AMD APUs is their integrated GPU. Adding another rather slow GPU on top of that just strikes me as a bit odd.

If you look at the intel setups on the same page you can get a basic i3 machine with integrated graphics for 400$. You can then spend the 150$ you saved on a GTX 1050/1050ti or the AMD equivalent.
