Need help with a build around 1300 — Micro Center

Need help with a build around 1300

hello there I am very new to building PCs as this will be my first one. I already have keyboard, mouse, and monitor. I would like to dabble in streaming, play MMORPGs, and Call of Duty. Could someone send me a build that would work with my budget and what id like to do with it?

    RAM: G skills Ripjas V 3600 8GB X2 16GB $ 77
    GPU: Gigabyte RX5700XT $ 420
    PSU: EVGA 650W BQ $80
    SSD: Samsung 860 256GB $70
    HD: WD 2TB $52
    Subtotal : $1133 + Tax
    Case: $85 your choice
    If you buy the CPU from microcenter, you get like $20 off your motherboard.
    If you need a speaker, then switch CPU to a R5 3600 to free up $100
  • I have to agree with the majority of xcore's build.  Only changed up a few things and I included a case that is 80$, but feel free to change that up to whichever case you want.  And just like xcore said if you need to free up a bit of cash drop the cpu to the R5 3600 and that extra cash should allow you to do what you want.
