Budget (including currency): $600

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Modern Warfare, Ark Survival Evolved, Rocket League, Maybe some streaming

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I already have the 240 gb ssd, 1 tb hdd, and a monitor.

Seriously consider going used, at least for some parts. Maybe new Ryzen setup and a used GPU.

All the parts are from amazon so they are all new/refurbished.

Everything in that list except for the GPU and case is garbage.

 

 

Seriously, go with new Ryzen and used GPU, or all used. You aren't getting a good PC if you buy everything new for $600.

Always go for Ryzen

 

and the 5600 XT is a good deal faster for the same price, it's nearing $250 on some cards

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

If you can get the new Ryzen 3 3300X instead, with a compatible mobo you'll have a better build.

Like many have said you don't need Intel. Your case isn't good, the Zotac GPU is ok. Go with Ryzen, here's my suggestion.

 The 3300X is worth the extra price generally speaking, especially with some faster RAM or a RAM OC

Yup I know, but I tried not to go above 600$. Also for some reason, the 3300X still has no price listed.
