PC for the girlfriend

Budget (including currency): $700 to 1,200 US Dollars

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Currently she plays dead by daylight, left 4 dead 2 and phasmo. She just started PC gaming not sure if she will play more intense games later on so thats why budget has a good range. 

Other details The peripherals such as mouse, keyboard, monitor etc etc are all taken care of. Just focusing on the tower right now.

On the low end at about 700-800$ you can get this. For some reason though the 3100 prices are inflated in the US, while it's far cheaper in UK.

On the higher end at about 1150$ you have this

 

Both of these systems will more than meet her needs.

If gaming and streaming, then get 3700x. If just mainly gaming and a little bit of streaming on the side, then

this.

Edit: oh shoot, intel

Tell him "AMD is currently better than Intel. So unless you have brand loyalty level 2000, switch to AMD."

Cool tech tip inside:

Showed my girlfriend some of this stuff and we got a new budget of around $800 if anyone wants to add any builds. Intel or AMD are fine.
