Details you may want: I'm in Canada. I have like no PC specs knowledge so I may need explanations. I'd like to spend from $500 to $1000. (Can spend more on extras like mouse, monitor and keyboard.) Uses: I want to be able to play rainbow six siege and rocket League for sure. Not sure about other games at the moment. Streaming capability would be nice. I'd need to be able to use a PS4/Xbox one remote for rocket League, not sure if I'd have to do something special hardware wise. Compatible or recommended extras would be nice. (Mouse, keyboard, monitor, etc.) Anyways, if you need more info, let me know in the comments. I apologize if my post is all over the place, I'm new to this[URL="https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/forum/27-create-a-part-list-for-me/new/"].[/URL] Edit Windows OS required. Also, sorry for the vague price range!

I can make a cheaper build if you want me to, but it would come at a decent cost to performance. If you want to stream then a 6 core 12 thread CPU like the Ryzen 5 2600 is ideal. At the least I'd say you'd need a 6 core 6 thread. The R5 2600 is one of the best - if not the best - price to performance CPUs on the market. 16Gb of RAM is more or less necessary now adays and on Ryzen you want faster RAM so 3000MHz should do the trick. For storage I selected a 1Tb HDD for mass storage and a 240Gb SSD for your OS and favorite games since it's so much faster. Tbh I personally would just opt for a large SSD but that's up to you. You could probably get a 500Gb SSD for the same price. Your choice. With the graphics card it might not be a bad idea to find a used one. I bought a used GTX 1080 for $350 and it's fantastic. You can find good used 1060 6Gb or RX 580 8Gb cards on craigslist or Ebay for reasonable prices and it would shave off a bit from the final price. I chose a micro ATX form factor motherboard and case because it's typically cheaper. The case is a bit of a pain in the butt to cable manage properly and it has sharp edges, but it looks good and is simple which is nice. 550W power supply for potential upgrades in the future. Good mouse/keyboard combo. As far as monitors go I would say just look around for a good deal. I personally like high refresh rate monitors, but everything is subjective and local deals are hard to beat most of the time. Hope this was helpful!
