Need help building first PC — Micro Center

Need help building first PC

Hello everyone ,
I am looking to build my first PC. I think max would be $650-700. This would be an entry level gaming computer to see if I like it or not. I have been playing on console my whole life. I’d mainly play fortnite , Warzone and valorant(maybe). I already have a monitor. 

Thank You

    Hello @Csquared9 so I got a build for you with one caveat because I can't get it to pop up on the system builder and that is instead of the ryzen 5 3600 go with the ryzen 3 3100.  This will save 60 bucks as the 3100 is 100$ and in stock on newegg and may pop up on micro center soon and could be available in store at a store by you.  Other than that the rest of the build should get you nicely underway with a solid system to game on.  Now this will put you at about 670 before tax.  And really the only way to drop the price would be to go with a G based processor with built in graphics and drop the stand alone GPU.  This may let you play the games you want at low graphics at 60fps but its best to get a stand alone GPU if you can.  You also may be able to save some money on the case if you can find a cheaper one by looking.  Just keep in mind that if you do go micro ATX you will need to find a micro atx motherboard.  You could also drop the 52$ 2 tb drive for a 1 tb drive for around 30 bucks but generally that extra tb for 20 bucks is worth it with the size of games these days.  This also doesn't have a win10 key so keep that in mind.  If you have any questions feel free to ask and I'm sure someone will be able to help.
