Hey I need help building my first PC. I need something I can use for gaming/work and possibly streaming since I am trying to get into streaming. Budget wise I'm going for 1600-ish. Please help!!!!!
I'd look at the following in this price range:
Are you able to provide more information on your needs and wishes? The budget figure is nice, but it is possible to build the perfect PC for $1600 and still miss your needs and wishes without knowing more.
Gaming, streaming, and work - all on one PC? Which games? Do your work activities have technical requirements of their own? Have you factored in the upload/download speeds of your internet connection for streaming? Does your budget include peripherals? Mic & camera setup for streaming? Heck - do you need a new mousepad?
@saphalline games would be apex, valorant and warzone at times. As for work it's just excel for the most part but I can use my laptop for that since im usually on the go.
@StrayKat just chiming in. Take a look at the type components that will work for a gaming and streaming pc with links below. Then use the Microcenter PC builder link @Ian provided to price out your chosen parts with Microcenter.
We'd recommend to go with the Ryzen 5 3600 or R7 3700x with the X570 motherboard. Go with 16 gigs of RAM and either a RTX 2060-2080 or RTX 3000 series GPU card if you can get one.
Your CPU, GPU and Motherboard are the core components for a PC. Review the link for PSU and hdd.

Alright thank you all for the help. I really appreciate it
