What is your budget and currency?
I'd like to keep it to $600 and under if possible

What will you use the PC for?
This is the odd part, my girlfriend is going to be starting her final semester in about a month. So it will be basic school stuff, and Sims4. That is the only game she plays and i figured why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone. She currently uses a beat ass laptop and occasionally my PC

Do you need a monitor? If not, what monitor(s) will you be using?
Nope

Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals?
Nope

Do you need an operating system?
Nope


Anything else we should know?
If it can play literally any other game, that is just an added bonus lol

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 3100 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor ($115.73 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI B450M BAZOOKA MAX WIFI Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($107.65 @ Amazon)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory ($59.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Crucial P2 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($59.95 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER 4 GB Twin Fan Video Card ($169.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P300A Mesh ATX Mid Tower Case ($59.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12III 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($67.54 @ Amazon)
Total: $640.84

Add whatever capacity HDD you want.
Can get an R5 2600 for $140, instead of the R3 3100 if you want. R3 3100 is probably the better option in this situation anyway tbh.
GPU is $20 more than I'd like to see it, but pricing/availability on 1650 Supers just seems a little iffy right now.
PSU should be $50 or less tbh, but again pricing/availability for PSU's has been off for a while now.

If you want to get it down closer to $600, then you can grab a cheaper case. Either of these are solid budget options;
