Whoa, easy big guy. This is not a 24/7 help line. People volunteer here and we do have normal lives. Breathe, relax. We'll come back to you.

There is also no need to PM people. Info in the PM should be here so everyone can see that info. I'll be honest, I just woke up from a nap. I might miss something in your PM that someone more awake might get. Keep the posts here so everyone can see it and all the info is in one place.

my budget is 1000-1250 including the monitor if I need a little more please let me know I might be able to 1500 or more buts that like in 3 months
This is the part my sleepy brain picked up on. I hate to tell you, but what you want isn't possible. According to Benq's website that monitor is $500. That leaves you with only $700+ to buy everything else. That used to be possible, but GPU prices have spiked and show no sign of coming down. Any card that could hit 240FPS at 1080 is over $1k now. You'll need to spend $2k or more NOT counting the monitor to do what you want.

Here is potential build in the link below. This build can be edited by you.

-I did not include a GPU in the build but I have a link to a GPU

https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GTX-1660-Graphics-ZT-T16620F-10L/dp/B07Z8PWC6R/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=geforce+gtx+1660&qid=1627389094&refinements=p_72:1248879011&rnid=1248877011&s=electronics&sr=1-5


- I did not include windows 10 OS in the list above cause you may be able to get it for free. if you have a activated copy on PC.

Go to this website and download the MS media creation tool I suggest using a USB 16Gb stick for the installer to be installed on. The media creation tool will ask you pick a media than pick USB.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-installation-media-for-windows-99a58364-8c02-206f-aa6f-40c3b507420d


Total once the GPU is added is
1,304.


I would not go looking for a 240 HZ GPU I saw one for 800.00 and up but that is to you. With the pandemic There is a semiconductor shortage ans many electronics are effected including high end GPUs. If you do decide on a different GPU stay with NVIDIA or AMD. make sure the length of the GPU will fix in the case picked.
