Hello everyone. I read the "How to post a build/upgrade" thread and it really doesn't help me because I am starting from scratch.

I want to build my daughter a gaming PC. What I have already is

Mouse - Razer Deathadder Expert
Keyboard - Merc Stealth
Headset - Razer ManO'War
Monitors - 2 Samsung 32in curved gaming monitors

That's some old stuff I had when I use to game years ago that may need to be upgraded probably, but may still work.

I don't really have a budget in mind. If it is worth it I will buy it. But really all I am looking for is something for a beginner. She want's a Gaming PC but has never used one, only the Xbox and PS. She currently has the new Xbox Series X and the PS5. But like I said she wants to get into PC gaming and I have always been a PC gamer (until I pretty much quit gaming) so I would like to build her something. Nothing super serious... Something that if she doesn't like it I don't feel like I wasted a ton of money.

Thanks for all the help!
I appreciate all the replies!

This is a difficult time to do a build. Video cards are going for three times their normal price atm due to the extreme chip shortage + the mining craze. If you can keep her resolution to 1080P then she can get some decent FPS without breaking the bank. About the only way to obtain a graphics card atm is off of Ebay ... just make sure not to purchase a used one. Start with a GTX 1650 Super which runs about $400 atm off of Ebay and work your way up the gpu hierarchy from there depending on your budget.

This build gives you a rough idea of what you're looking at cost wise.
