I'd suggest the same as here tbh;


PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Best Buy)
Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory ($64.98 @ Amazon)
Storage: Crucial P2 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($94.50 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB Phoenix OC Video Card ($229.99 @ B&H)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital ATX Mid Tower Case ($86.98 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12III 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($54.99 @ B&H)
Monitor: MSI Optix G241 23.8" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor ($179.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $1026.41

Could easily save some money on the case if you really wanted, with something like the P400A without the RGB fans;
or a P300A;
P300A could do with some extra case fans at some point, as could the P400A without RGB fans, but that can be sorted later easily.

Could also save $20-30 on monitor with one of these instead;
VA panels instead of IPS.

Can save $40ish by dropping to a 500GB Crucial P2 instead of the 1TB variant, if you want. I wouldn't though, I'd definitely stick with the 1TB NVMe SSD.

and I'd just grab any cheap kb/mouse combo for now.
