Hello, I was looking to buy my little brother a pc. Preferably a pre-built, my budget was is about $1000-$1300 max after taxes. Its going to be used for school but im sure gaming mainly. He's really into Apex, Fortnite, and Warzone atm. He wants to play games like valorant and csgo when he does get a pc. Any help will greatly appreciated and thank you again.

I am looking to build a pc for my little brother and wanted some help putting one together for him. My budget was hopefully under 1,100 if possible, cheaper is better tbh. He really only plays APEX, fortnite. He would also like to play another pc titles when he gets it so anything that could run most games, doesnt have to be at ultra settings. Any help will be appreciated, thank you again.

you want the components to be new or used? during the gpu shortages, gpus are expensive, i suggest you to buy a used gpu. i can choose a good gaming pc for only $500(used components) if you want.

Yeah the other ones came out to over $1300 after taxes, was hoping to get under after taxes. But thank you again for the respond. Would this work with a 1660 ti I have a guy selling local for under stock x ask?
 
On graphics if you are going used, there appear to be 1070's on ebay for about 400ish, which would be slightly better than a vanilla 1660.

If budget is a concern, you might even leave the rest of the above build the same and go for the i3 10100. Do you have microcenter nearby? If so, the one near me has been having 6600xt cards for 500. Which is high, but if you are spending 429 for a 1660 you might as well go for the better card for a little more.
