Hello @Ave25 and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. How do you plan on using your new computer build?
Will you be gaming, playing Call of Duty and Fortnite or will you just be surfing the web and looking at emails?
The purpose of your computer will help guide you and us on where you need to start on building your pc.

@Ave25 okay, for gaming and sim racing. Below is a link with a guide for the parts you'll need for the PC you're wanting to build. Look at going with the AMD Ryzen 7 3800 or a Ryzen 9 3950 with a MSI or ASUS x570 motherboard. You could still go with a Ryzen 5 3600 with X570 as well, but the Ryzen 7 and 9 are slightly higher performaning chips. Go with 16gb of ram and SSD 1-2TB drive. Your graphic card could be the GTX 1660 to help stay in your budget, but you may be able to go up to RTX 2060 which may go over your budget between $8-$15. Use the Microcenter custom build PC link below as well to see your total cost.
