Alright so i'm looking to build my first computer! I Know only $680.00 is pushing it but i know it can be done (i hope). Basically i want to be able to play stuff like minecraft at max settings around maybe 200-300 fps, hopefully! Also stuff like csgo and sort of not the best and (don't judge me) im also a pokemon lover! i want a computer that can run those .exe fan games everyone is talking about without any issues and as best i can play them with there speedups like basically get the best speed up! i have a mouse keyboard and monitor so i'm good with that, also has to have enough power to render videos pretty well! i really hope you guys can either set me up with some builds or atleast help me to start! thanks so much!

Do you have a monitor that can display 300 fps? If so, I'm impressed, I thought 240 was the max available currently.

Nah but it's just for re assurance! my other computer did around 200 fps and when i tried different fps such as the 120-144 is didn't look right like kinda choppy but the 200-300 looked amazing, Also guarantees me some Shader compliance! Do you have a recommended build?

Perhaps something like this. If you plan on overclocking, get the Cryorig H7. It will put you $10 over budget but the temps show that your $$$ was put into to good use.

Now where would that put me in the fps department for games? like csgo and minecraft? where would i be able to run more higher end games? would i be able to run 60 fps? on such higher end games?

CSGO and Minecraft can basically run on a potatoe so this would demolish those two. AAA games you can play med- high with at least 50 fps (I think... I am undershooting if anything).

Do you know of any benchmark tests on youtube or anywhere.. where a similiar system is used?

Do you have experience with framerates or did you just think of 200-300 fps on the spot?

Most people dont see any differemce between 120 and 144, so anything above that is absolutly useless.
