Haven't been in the PC scene in a while, two of my homies want to upgrade from console. No extra peripherals, just components.

500-700 1080p 60fps or higher on most titles on high settings. Ty

90FPS @ 1080p High with 2600 RX570 (Closer to 75Hz)

119FPS @ 1080p High with 2600 1660 Ti (Pretty good 144Hz)

136FPS @ 1080p High with 3600 1660 Ti (Really good 144Hz)

Gpucheck.com seems to suggest the 2600 build would benefit from an overclock to be less of a bottleneck for the 1660 Ti.

Or this: ($100 over budget but the 3600 seems to match better with the 1660 Ti than the 2600 does)
