Hi, so I’m trying to build a pc for gaming and streaming. I would prefer to go with a Ryzen gpu if possible and I was looking at the rtx 2060 super. I would prefer the build to be black and white.(not picky just not a fan of RGB) can someone please help me put together a pc within my budget. I can go a little higher.

I've done a rudimentary one because prices are kinda stupid right now, especially PSU's (there's probably better for the price but I was in a hurry at the end there!). Ideally you'd want a 3700 or 3700x for streaming, and probably a cpu cooler as well, but that would you put you $250 or so over budget.

For Streaming I would strongly suggest a Ryzen 7 3700x based Rig.
And I would get an Corsair RM650/RM650i
RM650 (2019) (this is what I have):

RM650i (2018):

or a Seasonic Focus Gold 650:

They are MUCH better than the bargain basement Corsair VS series.
As for a GPU, I have an MSI RTX 2060 Super Armor OC and it is a Very good GPU.

Your biggest issue at the moment is going to be supply.
Many PC components (GPUs and PSU especially) are hard to find right now and many companies are Price Gouging.
