Looking to build a glorified PC that handle some gaming. Fortnite n Sims. Prefer ssd, Kingston or or corsaire products room for expansion later on such as RGB customization, and all within $600 usd budget. Which would hopefully include a nice monitor

Your budget is too tight to waste money on RGB (looks pretty but does nothing for performance):

Your right,but in a few months I'd like the space to add it. What's your thoughts on this approach https://youtu.be/b7Y7E6NnY4Q. It's a system build for 300

CPU is fine. The motherboard is old. The RAM is slow and only 8gb. The HDD is slow. The case is questionable quality. The PSU is poor. There is no operating system or peripherals included in the price.

In your budget is only $300 then you are honestly better off with a console.

HOW DARE YOU SAY THE "C" WORD, TREACHERY.

So after looking at both options. I'll dig a little deeper. Current console nets 60fps. I'll raise the budget to 750 with all perfs and rgbs would be great
