Monitors will be some sort of 1080p monitors.
Games: pubg, Fort nite, other medium intensity games, maybe some higher like battlefield and such.
Work will be basic stuff nothing intensive Internet, word etc

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($179.99 @ Mike's Computer Shop)
Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard ($154.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Memory: Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($81.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Storage: Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($119.99 @ Canada Computers)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 8 GB PULSE Video Card ($499.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Case: Cooler Master MasterBox NR600 (w/o ODD) ATX Mid Tower Case ($97.99 @ PC-Canada)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx (2018) 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($109.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Total: $1244.93

You could save $50 and get the system under $1200 if you swap the RX 5700 for an RTX 2060. The extra 2GB VRAM and better performance of the RX 5700 over the RTX 2060 make it well worth the extra $50 though IMO. Since, even of you won't notice the extra performance now, the RX 5700 will last you longer.

That said, if you're using 1080p60Hz monitors, a GTX 1660Ti would be more than adequate and would let you save $150 over the RX 5700. So if you want to get the system under $1200, I'd just get a GTX 1660Ti.
