Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: racing/ driving simulator games; chrome (tend to have multiple tabs open like 3+) Zoom; JWLIBRARY. Likely to run 2or 3 of those at the same time.

A good go-to motherboard is the b450 tomahawk max, Ive used it before and its great. Some people will disagree, but for a $750 budget a B450 board for $100 is a good option for ryzen 3000. Otherwise wait for B550 and see if a similarly priced board appears. 

 

GPU- RX 5600xt or Gtx 1660ti, whichever is cheaper at the time. Both a have their benefits though the rx 5600xt is generally faster.

 

Ram- any dual channel ddr4 3000mhz and faster is fine (16gb for $65-$70), make sure the timings are as low as you can go (cl16 as a reference is mid range, cl19 is slow, and cl14 is decently fast)

 

For storage- a 240gb ssd for $40 and a 1TB hdd for $50 is my go to recommendation for my customers.

 

Power Supply- hopefully you can find one for less than $200 if you can find one at all, do not buy from cheap brands like "Apevia". Make sure that the PSU is rated for 80+White or higher.

 

Monitor- There are so many 27" 1080p $100 monitors out there, take your pick.

 

If you dont count the cpu, then that comes to $750 including a $60- $70 budget for the psu (if you can find one). If you need to cut expenses, then cut the ssd to 128 gb and the ram to 8Gb.

 

 

(I don't think I forgot anything, I literally do this all the time for people and sometimes have a brain fart on the simplest component to add.)
