$800 GTA, CS:GO PC for recording/streaming

I want a pc that's give or take $900. I'll be playing GTA 5, CS:GO, Sims, and Minecraft. I will also be recording videos for Youtube, and probably streaming if the pc allows. The $900 doesn't include the mouse, keyboard, and monitor. I'm willing to spend around $1300 total. Thanks in advance for your help!

If you need OS and peripherals I can adjust the build since you didn't mention.

Cuz its fine and in his price range. Yours has Intel sure but less ram and a low end power supply. Also minimum recommended wattage is 650w for the 390.

600w is enough for the 390, people have it running fine on a 550w and it isnt a bad PSU, its actually really good for its price. The OP won't need 16gb ram, even for GTA, it only uses about 3gb.

For streaming and video editing it helps alot. Compared to the power supply I course its no good and that won't work for everyone I've seen lots of people think they had a bad gpu and it was just the psu.

What you aren't getting is that the 600B is a good unit, just because its on the cheaper side it isnt bad, just doesn't have 80+ Gold/modular. I changed my build to include peripherals and was able to get a g2 650w, which is probably the best 650w you can get.
