Greetings, are you just looking for parts or does your budget need to account for peripherals as well?
Here's an example that's right on $2k: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=ce2b336b-ebe9-479f-bcbd-10dd3dc7c871
That's based on AMD. Do you have a preference regarding AMD or Intel? AMD is a pretty good bargain right now as the next generation is expected to come in a few months.
Do you have a preference for what case size or do you need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc? I did not include any of that stuff but if your budget is 2k-3k then there's plenty of money for those parts left.
Hey, what resolution are you looking to play games in?
Sure, here, I just edited my list to use Intel and nVidia: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=2d492a84-d8a8-4e97-b943-253d4778f417
The i5 12600K is supposed to be the Intel sweet spot for gaming right now.
At 1080p resolution, a 3070 is supposed to get around 200fps playing Tarkov on high settings. I don't have this game myself so I can't attest to that. Anyway, the total was only 1800ish so you can go up to either a 3070Ti or 3080 easily. You still didnt mention if you already have a monitor or need one included in this budget.
