I need help choosing parts for my first gaming PC. My budget is $1200.


So I've been wanting to get a custom PC for many years now, and this summer I finally landed a job to do it. I just really need recommendations of specific parts and brands since I'm not very knowledgeable on most of this. I know I want at least a Ryzen 5 3600, 16 GB of Ram, A white themed case, and 480-500 SSD storage. Aside from those, I don't have a great idea for any budget gaming parts I may want. It would also be best if I could create this PC using the Microcenter Custom Builder. I already bought my peripherals.
