Any recommendations for a budget PC? Starter list shown, looking to compete with an Xbox Series S.

Go to solution Solved by Random_Person1234,

If you want to compete with next gen consoles, I suggest you wait for the RTX 3060. I went Intel 10400F because it’s around the same performance for cheaper and it’s actually in stock.

Budget (including currency): ~$800-$100 (Preferably lower end, similar to xbox Series S once you add subscription, wireless controller, games (since I play some games that I bought on old pc already.)

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Modern Warfare, Fortnite, Rocket League, Minecraft

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): 

Again, hopefully similar in performance to Xbox Series S.

Do you really think the 3060 is necessary? I was hoping to built this pretty soon

If you want similar performance to the Series S, then I would suggest waiting. I can say that the RTX 3060 would be a lot better than an RX 580. The 3060 should come out next month.
