My wife's looking to get into gaming. Trying to get her a build around 1000-1200. She will need everything including peripherals.no brand preference. Also must be pink lol.

Well, pink isn't super easy. Plenty of cases, but not much else, lots of white though. There is a huge premium associated with it, so this went a little over budget. I will leave it to you to locate peripherals. I looked at some keyboard/mice sets. There are tons of white peripherals, but if you really want pink you can try hitting up Amazon, ebay, aliexpress, etc for that kind of thing. Headsets are in the same territory, lots of white sets, but costs vary wildly with quality.

I did find a decent white monitor, but again, that is something you pay a premium for. Not too many white monitors out there.

You might consider upgrading the power supply to a white Corsair RM and getting a white cable kit from cable mod, it would help.

Would be helpful if you were to impart to us what some of the specific games and at what resolution desired.
RTX3050 and RX6600 are about as low as I would go, and they are capable of running any title at 1080p. Really don't think there is room in the budget for 1440p.

6650XT in white, I don't think there is anything better at the moment.

Though that is a nicely inexpensive RTX2060, have to keep it in mind.
 
This is perfect. Thank you guys!! I'm sorry I forgot toention I have a spare monitor for her.
Here is the revised build...

This case comes with two 200mm fans in the front and one 120mm in the back so should be fine for airflow, it's abit expensive, but has a pink front, i think it looks classy. For peripherals take a look yourself as well, hard to say what she really needs, think these are nice for the price.
Might be that the cooler doesn't come with the 1700 bracket, but you can order one, think only a few will have it from the get go, like this one,
