Need Help With Budget Friendly PC In Time For Christmas

I am looking to help my brother build a PC for one of his kids. He has a budget of $500-$550, but with 3 kids anything under that budget is appreciated. Build is mainly for gaming and possibly streaming. Want to have Windows 10 OS. If monitor can fit under budget that would be a great bonus. Located in Southeast US.

I personally am more familiar to Intel, but am not completely opposed to using AMD for this build.

Thanks in advance.

Should be a solid little machine! I'm thinking medium to high on most games, and a solid medium for the more AAA titles?
