So I was just wondering how much a starter PC would cost? I've always been a console player but feel like it's time for a change!

I am a complete noob when it comes to this shit so I would appreciate some help just a starter PC that could run CoD would be perfect! I'd upgrade it over time but just wanting to know how much a starter PC would be!

Any recommendations?

Respectively... ANY PC can run Cod "okay" and significantly better than any console.

For one, no console truly displays 4K because of the hardware limitations. Sure it gives you the option to do it, and if you compare that image to one from a PS4/5 or Xbox to a PC you'll see the difference. PC will always display literally what you set it to. Question is can your PC handle it.

Depending on where you want to go with your money.. Look up craigslist or other buy and sell apps for PCs. I've seen some decent ones selling for 500-1000 USD. I've built ones ranging from 400-10,000 USD. Choice is just how good you want things to look and how you want other things to perform.

Really into gaming? A good Graphics card and CPU are going to be the things you want the most, next would your RAM and storage choice.

Maybe you wanna go into streaming, or take your streaming to PC instead of console. Well a good CPU and a good chunk of RAM will help.

Tell us what your budget is, what you intend to use your PC for, and what you need.
New monitor?
Keyboard and mouse?
Webcam, mic/headset/headphones?
PC Case?
etc..

Hey Im brand new to PCs and I was looking for a good prebuilt *because I know the situation with the scalpers* around in the $1000 range mainly to run cod nicely and maybe start hosting modded lobbies to make some money back. I was also thinking of also getting tan alienware monitor that is capable of 240herts. (I don't really know that a $1000 pc will reach that high but I was hoping to find a prebuilt that could handle like 144) (also if u think it's stupid to get that monitor lmk) Keep in mind I am upgrading from just the Xbox one with a ok acer monitor. If you guys have any recommendations i would really appreciate it.

PS. I was looking into getting the IBuyPower Element 9260. The specs are-
Power Supply-Channel Well Technology 500W 80+Bronze rated PSU
Cpu: Intel i7-9700F (3.0Ghz - 4.7Ghz)
Motherboard: ASUS TUF B365M
Cooler :Deep Cool 92mm CPU Cooler
Memory: 16GB [8GB x 2] DDR4-2666MHz Apacer
Primary Solid State Drive 240GB Apacer SSD
Backup Hard Drive: 1TB Western Digital SATA III
Graphics: MSI VENTUS GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 6GB
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home Advanced 64 Bit

Hello. I'm also searching for new configuration. I will need to work with graphics and video editing applications. Intel i7-9700F is really worth buying? And what PSU should I choose? I read a guide how to choose right one on inversegeek.com/features/how-to-c...ing-guide/ but I want also to know your opinion!

Depends on the price, the rest of your specs, and what exactly you'll be using the system for. Probably not worth buying though IMO.
