Hey everyone, I'm looking to build my first PC but I'm finding it hard to pick parts. I'm fairly new to PC gaming, i've always played on a console. I've read through a lot of the guides but it seems like there's still a lot of options and I don't entirely understand the differences between them and what the best bang for my money. This is why I always buy pre-built stuff. But now I'm curious and thinking I'm going to finally just go ahead and build my own. I am going to use it mainly to play games and photo editing with the best settings possible. I know that I definitely want it to be able to use WiFi.

Budget:500-700

Location: United States

Used: gaming and photo editing

Thanks for the help in advance.

Heya!

I'd recommend going with something like this. The processor is extremely solid and the GPU is great for gaming at 1080p
