I am looking through Amazon of parts for my friend, when i am about to order them for my new build. The main issue is gaming, but also for streaming if i get into that in the future. My friends max budget is 1200$. He has already a monitor and Windows 10, so no need to buying that.
I need help putting together a shopping basket with all parts necessary for him to order from Amazon and start gaming.
  • Chassi?
  • Motherboard?
  • RAM?
  • CPU?
  • Power supply?
  • Graphic card?
Can you please help me put together a shopping cart, and send me the link?
Big thanks in advance!

It was difficult to fit in a 2060 but figured out a way do let him know if the rig doesn't display anything he will want to apply for a Ryzen 3000 upgrade kit more about that here.

Awesome, thanks! Will it be more expensive to buy all part from Amazon?
As for now, i need to order parts 3-4 different retailers. Feels a bit unpractical.

I have updated the post the only one you will need to get from a different store is the processor as it is not the correct price due to a supply shortage the parts highlighted in red weren't detected by pcpartpicker the other ones just click the link and the parts will show up and you can begin ordering them all.

hello, i have a bit of a problem understanding you. Can you please use more commas?
further, why the extra mechanical drive? i want an faster ssd if i want to storage something.

what do you mean by the cpu is not compatible with the power supply? or did i misunderstood you?

I don't have the best punctuation I apologize.

1. The processor is the only one I wouldn't get on amazon as it's overpriced due to a supply shortage.

2. HDD is still very useful as it's good to have one for A: back up or B: extra storage if SSDs were cheap like HDDs are I'd add an SSD but they aren't and games are getting bigger files will help in the long run tell him to put the games he plays a lot on the M.2 NVME drive and games he doesn't play as much on his HDD.

Ok, so if i understand you correctly; i can buy everything from Amazon except the CPU?
If i do choose the CPU from Amazon, will the system go over 1200$?

If there's an issue with keeping it within the budget, the Ryzen 3600 is plenty capable.
You can stream with either the cpu or the gpu depending on the game being played, if one or the other happens to be short on resources.

This is extremely strong build for gaming and streaming.
There are no additional charges when ordered from other stores. Don't see the reason to order from Amazon only. Yes it will take bit longer to get delivered depending on the store but will be saving good amount.
