Hey everyone, I am building my first PC and have a budget of approximately. $1000. I have a parts list from PCPartPicker which I will link at the end. But I would like feedback on it so I know it is worth the money to build. Feel free to let me know which parts I should exchange if need be. Thanks.

Budget: ~$1000
Use: Gaming, Everyday use, Streaming (If possible withing budget)
Monitor: I am considering the Sceptre C248B-144RN, but suggestions are welcome
Peripherals: I already have a Corsair M55 mouse and a SteelSeries ArctisPro+GameDAC, need a keyboard (preferably not too loud.)
Operating System: Prefer Windows

My PC build draft:

Definitely change the CPU and motherboard. Waste of money buying a Z series motherboard with a locked CPU. It also just doesn't make any sense to buy a last generation Intel CPU. If you're going to buy Intel for whatever reason, buy 10th gen at least.

Also don't spend $50+ on a rubber dome keyboard pls. If you're buying a cheap keyboard, just spend $20-30 on something to do the job. Alternatively, spend more like $100 for a nice mechanical keyboard.

Around a grand with a 1660Ti, this is what I'd be looking at;

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory ($59.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Crucial P2 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($94.49 @ Amazon)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB VENTUS XS OC Video Card ($229.99)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A ATX Mid Tower Case ($69.98 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx (2018) 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($89.98 @ Newegg)
Monitor: VIOTEK GFV24C 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor ($144.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $1004.40

Better case, PSU, and monitor. Also a better CPU.
