Hey,

I was curious as to if someone can help me build a new gaming pc setup, preferably intel. My budget is $800-$1000. I don't need a desk or accessories of any such, just a PC build. If anything else is needed to know, I'll gladly provide. + Rep for any help!

Assuming the currency is USD.
What exactly will the system be used for? What kinds of games? What other than games, if anything?
Answer the rest of the questions above for us as well, please.

What is your budget and currency? US currency & my budget is $800-$1000
What will you use the PC for? The computer will be used for gaming for the most part.
Do you need a monitor? If not, what monitor(s) will you be using? I have dual monitors and ones an Asus VG24QE and the other is a Spectre E22B.
Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals? No
Do you need an operating system? Sure, why not
Will you overclock? No
Anything else we should know? Not that i can think of

So, obviously don't buy any Intel CPU right now. I'd still be buying Ryzen either way, but if you're set on Intel, wait for 10th gen to launch.

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F 2.9 GHz 6-Core Processor ($149.99 @ Best Buy)
Motherboard: ASRock B365 Pro4 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($99.98 @ Newegg)
Memory: Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($64.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Crucial P1 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($119.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB OC Rev 2.0 Video Card ($309.99 @ B&H)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P300A Mesh ATX Mid Tower Case ($59.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Corsair CX (2017) 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($64.99 @ Corsair)
Total: $869.92

Grab an i5-10400F and a B460 motherboard when they're out, do not buy an i5-9400F.

Add a 7200RPM HDD in whichever capacity you need/want.

If you want to stretch further towards the $1000 budget, you could up the RTX 2060 to an RX 5700XT or something.
