Looking to build a gaming pc and need help picking parts

edited April 26 in Help Choosing Parts
Hello, I am currently trying to pick parts for building a gaming pc. I don't have too much knowledge on this but I would love to get into it, all my knowledge has come from watching Linus Tech Tips, Bitwit, or Austin Evans on youtube lol. My budget is around $800 not including monitor, keyboard, or mouse. I was wondering if I could get some feedback on parts you would recommend for a build like this, I'm already thinking of getting the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 as the CPU. I would love to hear any suggestions y'all have for parts! Thanks in advance! (This would mostly be for Fortnite and schoolwork, at least for now)
