I'm completely new to the whole "Build your own PC" thing and I'm looking for some help on choosing parts.

-Budget: $1300 -Location: United States, Nevada -Use: Gaming, editing/streaming, rendering -Peripherals: any suggestions would be nice (buying these outside of the 1300 budget) -Operating system: Probably

I mainly want to be able to play/livestream games like League of Legends, Fortnite, and PUBG at fairly high settings/fps while still being able to do other tasks in the background like music and discord. An all white aesthetic is preferred but not needed, just looking to build the best gaming PC I can with my budget. Thanks for the help!!

8gb of ram isn't really advisable for what they want to do.

That PSU is 8 years and no longer recommended for modern PCs. It lacks protections, is group regulated, and there are better options.

The build itself is under your budget so I threw in an OS and a keyboard and mouse.

It'll be perfect for streaming and multitsking.

CSM is a mediocre PSU. A corsair CXM is far better and cheaper.
