So mine I built out of a HP Compaq 8200 Elite Tower that I got from my school's computer club, then added a new PSU, GPU, and the Motherboard power converter for it. Specs are here as follows:
•Intel Core i3 2100 Dual Core 3.1 GHz
•HP 1494 motherboard (standard that was inside PC, took me a while to find the name)
•GeForce GTX 660ti 2gb
•8gb DDR3 1333 MHz
•500 GB Seagate HDD
•Corsair 450 Watt Semi Modular PSU
Total cost: $45

From my experience at work, You really want to run your 3D modeling software off your SSD drive. And the tools are getting bigger and bigger. I would not go less than a 500 gb SSD. The software installs are just huge. My install of 3DsMax 2018 was 20 gb alone. And I still have 2016 and 17 on the system because some of the teams I work with do not update as often as I do. The same applies to pretty much Any of the Autodesk tools, little to no backward compatibility so I always have a couple years worth on the system at a time.

Hmm, yeah, but I would really like an NVME SSD. Its speeds are too good to pass up, but the jump from a 250 to a 500gb is pretty big.

I get that, but 250 is Not as much space as you think it is. If you dont get it in the first build, you really need to keep it in mind for the future. When you get some spare cash add a 500 just for your software installs.
