What are your favorite esports titles? Do you need a monitor included in the price or do you already have some kind of screen such as TV (same for any other parts, keyboard, etc)?
id reccomend using

MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS Motherboard (AMD AM4, PCIe 4.0, DDR4, SATA 6Gb/s, M.2, USB 3.2 Gen 2, HDMI, ATX)
CHECK CLEARANCE IF YOU GO IN-STORE YOU MAY FIND A BETTER MOTHERBOARD FOR THE SAME PRICE AS THE ONE ABOVE.
ANY FANS WORK CHECK WHAT THEY HAVE INSTORE YOU NEED CASE FANS AND CPU COOLER
CASE IS WHATEVER YOU LIKE
EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 XC Gaming, 12G-P5-3657-KR, 12GB GDDR6, Dual-Fan, Metal Backplate

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM008 2 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - SATA
Corsair RM Series, RM850, 850 Watt, 80+ Gold Certified, Fully Modular Power Supply
Take a look at this, it should be the best all around build at the price point. 5600x comes with a stock cooler which can make use of it. 6700xt is more powerful than 3060ti and slightly inferior than 3070. If the price is still too high or you really want to include the monitor, downgrade the motherboard to a cheaper b550/b450(make sure it supports bios usb flashback), or also you can downgrade the graphics card to 3060/6600xt/6650xt(which I don't recommend).
I was reviewing this thread and pretty much wound up on the same build idea as above, looks good for the price. Should be noted this doesn't include Windows however (if needed).
Regarding Yingdong's list: You can save some $ by getting the 5600 without the X. The 5600 still has regular boost overclocking just not unlocked for unlimited. And with the stock cooler and that motherboard, you aren't going to be doing any high end overclocking.
You're welcome, if you have any other questions please let us know.
I didn't pick a cooler, the stock wraith cooler comes with 5600x has thermal paste reapplied and is enough for 5600x with a tweaked precision boost overdrive. You won't loost lots of performance as zen 3 cpus aren't the best for overclocking and neither would gain huge performance boost even by giving it a top tier aio. Give your budget isn't that generous, it's much better to invest your budget it in gpu, 1440p monitor, better psu or even extra pair of ram/ssd.
@Infinity2437 Honestly i think the computer is just a bit too weak, It might be a great computer now but in 2 years its gonna be completely outdated with whats coming out now.
Any motherboard is compatible with a 3060Ti.
To check compatibility with the i5 just use the 'pc builder' from the microcenter home page and select the cpu. then the motherboard category will only bring up compatible boards.
