First-time builder here. I'm looking to build a $1,200 gaming PC (not including monitor, OS, or peripherals) and way out of my element. I know this isn't how this usually works, but I'd love to get some help and/or feedback on this sub-$1200 part list I've put together. It's based heavily on this build from PC Game Haven with a few modifications based on some initial research.
As a first-time builder, I'm also incredibly nervous about the build process. I liked the $1250 build that PC Part Picker did, and although that specific build is a little over my budget, I'd like my eventual PC to somewhat mirror that build so I can easily follow the assembly video.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
