First time building a PC but looking forward to it, just need some help on best parts to get for the budget I have.

What is your budget and currency? $1200
What will you use the PC for? Gaming/streaming start up
Do you need a monitor? If not, what monitor(s) will you be using? I have UltraGear LG 32" 165Hz
Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals? Keyboard and mouse nothing too crazy as I use controller lol.
Do you need an operating system? Yes
Will you overclock? Don't plan to
Anything else we should know?
Just want a good build for gaming on Gears, Cod, and any other regular shooter games thanks in advance!

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5700X3D 3 GHz 8-Core Processor ($241.00 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE WHITE ARGB 66.17 CFM CPU Cooler ($36.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus PRIME B550-PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan Z 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory ($55.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Western Digital Black SN850X 1 TB M.2-2280 PCIe 4.0 X4 NVME Solid State Drive ($84.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Gigabyte GAMING OC Radeon RX 7800 XT 16 GB Video Card ($499.99 @ B&H)
Case: Fractal Design Pop Air RGB ATX Mid Tower Case ($89.99 @ B&H)
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GT 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($64.98 @ Amazon)
Total: $1188.92

You can drop the CPU to an R5 5600X, and then spend the extra $100 on an RTX 4070 Super instead of the RX 7800XT, if you want.

The 4070S is on average 10% faster than the 7800XT, plus you get better ray tracing performance and the NVidia feature set, if that makes a difference to you.

In CPU heavy games or tasks, the 5700X3D will be more than 10% faster than an R5 5600X.

But any half decent cheap kb+mouse combo for now, $30-40 will be enough.

1TB isn't a massive amount of capacity, but it's easy enough to add storage later. Entry level 2TB NVMe SSDs are mega cheap these days, so I'd probably just add one of those when you have more cash
