RE: Any suggestions on a pc build?

Don't buy a PC right now I'd say

If you want to build yourself, GPUs are almost impossible to find for reasonable prices (you need to use ebay or any other website, most computer STORES dont even have them in stock)

for a CPU, try to go for at least a 8 or 10 core CPU so you can handle your games and streaming software well, I'd personally recommend any AMD Ryzen 3000 or 5000 series CPU (if you can find any)

For RAM, try to get more than 16GB, it's pretty vital to have a lot of RAM when streaming.

That said, if you're not building yourself, there are plenty of prebuilt options out there, and while I'd never personally recommend a prebuilt myself in normal times, with the chip shortage right now if you need a PC very soon or now, for your wallet's sake it is actually much more cost effective to go with one, because of the terrible markups on GPU prices right now.

heres some links to some handy prebuilt PC websites

Maingear Vybe
https://maingear.com/vybe/

Pros: Great Build Quality, great support team
Cons: Kinda bloated price, not really worth it

HP OMEN
https://www.hp.com/us-en/shop/slp/omen-gaming/desktops
Pros: Somewhat reputable brand, MUCH better pricing than maingear (they are boutique)
Cons: It's HP, it's not necessarily BAD but it's alright in build quality, parts are much better for the price though


Conclusion: If you wanna build yourself, I would wait until you find a good deal on ebay for a GPU , but know it might not come for a while, if you want to buy a prebuilt, do research on what OEMs are the most reputable and bring you closest to MSRP in cost of parts.

yeah if you wanna get a pc now you should just get a prebuilt, the market is like burnt pancake. Get a prebuilt from nzxt bld or something I heard it’s pretty good.

If you're a multitasker, AMD CPUs are great at that.
