Black Friday deals/200$ budget

I’m new to gaming on a computer. I don’t have a lot of tech background. I’m looking to build a computer while the Black Friday deals and cyber Monday deals are happening now. I have a 200$ budget, a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and 4 TB external hard drive so far. What I’m looking to do with it is ONLY play games like total war 2 war hammer for example or Starcraft 2. I know I’ll be playing those for sure. I’m on a budget but can go a little higher than 200$. I live in the US so I’m not far away for shipping. I don’t know what other info you’ll need so go ahead and ask anything. Thank you and happy thanksgiving

Old sandy bridge prebuilts can be around $100, add a GT 1030 and it'll beat any 2200g or 200GE APU system.

You’re saying the prebuilt/refurbished computer with that vid card is better than anything you’ve seen posted on here?

Yeah, a second gen I5 or I7 in a prebuilt with a GT 1030 will be better than a 200 GE

I’m looking to get atleast 3 different build options to make the best educated decision on what will be the best for me.
