R3 2200G - ~$80
B450 Mobo(AsRock B450M Pro4-F) - $70-80
8GB 3200MHz RAM(2x4GB) - $30-40
Monitor - $90ish
Storage(500ish GB SSD) - $50
These prices are assuming there is any stock though, and I can't seem to find R3 2200G's anywhere. You could grab a 3200G for an extra $20 though, which will do the same job anyway.
This would leave you around $75 for a case and PSU(if you find a 2200G for $80), so grab a cheap case for like $25, and then $50 should usually get you something like a Corsair CX450 or Seasonic S12III 500W. However, as I said, stock is horrendous right now and I can't find any reasonable quality PSUs for less than $70.
So, if stock was there, you could just about manage a system for $400, but you'd be running it without a discrete GPU, and would be relying on the Vega 8 integrated graphics. While that would be absolutely fine for the likes of Fortnite, etc, I'm not sure I'd be playing Halo Infinite on an APU.
ok that honestly helps a lot. i am gonna save up more than $300, but i was just wanting to see if i could get in for around that price range.
