Hey there guys looking to build 2 PC's for my little brothers. Budget is $800 cad each wanted everyone's ideas on some good gpu and overall parts. Going with amd for both and 8gb ram. With gpu being very limited wanted to see what pepole think is a good all around one. Both of them are going to stream most likely but also mostly play fortnight.

Dell has G-Series desktops $850 with an i5-10400F + GTX 1650 Super + 1x8GB ram
Lenovo has Creator 5i for also $850 with an i5-10400F + GTX 1660 Super +12GB ram

Think Lenovo wins this round.

I would shop around at some other OEMs to see if anything fits your budget. About the only sensible way to get a GPU, even if the core computer isn't ideal.
 
$800 each?
Impossible with a dedicated GPU.

3200G should deliver above 60FPS with that new performance mode Fortnite added recently.
Aftermarket cooler isnt necessary, but it will keep the 3200G cooler while staying silent.
Motherboard is pretty much top-notch when it comes to B450 chipset.
5000 series cpu's can be put in it with a BIOS update.
2x8GB 3200MHz will be plenty for 3200G, and as high as i would go with a 3200G if im being honest.
For storage, 1TB of m.2 is all a kid would need.
For the GPU, oh yeah, we dont have one....
The case comes with 3 fans and allows air to travel through the front, which is really good.
The PSU is ready to go with a 3070 standard card, when/if you upgrade to that.
650W of top-notch PSU is perfect and will last you very long, hence the 10y varranty.

This system should game pretty much everything at 1080p low settings.
My friend who has a similar system downloaded AC Valhalla, has 30fps low settings with discord, although he is playing at 720p since his monitor isnt 1080p.
Save up money for the GPU, when that becomes available.

i think a gpu is very possible lol. you put rgb corsair ram and 1tb ssd 2 things that are very unnecessary for fortnight. also the cpu comes with a fan already

perfect thank you for your idea ya so use to having a bigger budget so building own is realistic but with $800 its looking like a pre built is the best options

In normal times it's possible. Right now, used 1050 Tis are regularly going for $200 and up on eBay. Honestly, your best chance of making a system right now is trying to get one of the Newegg/Best Buy/other drops at MSRP and then just build if and when you're successful. Otherwise, a prebuilt is the way to go, as annoying as it is for me to say as a longtime hobbyist.
