$650 USD for gaming and every day use

Hi all, Here’s my project. For $650 or less (if you need to go a couple dollars more that’s fine but absolutely must stay under $700), make me a list of all of the parts that go inside the case - that means everything but case, monitor, operating system, and M/K. I will use it for every day use - homework (think web surfing plus Microsoft office type things), video streaming (Netflix/YouTube), and games such as CS, Rocket League, Fortnite, and several less intensive games. The parts I already have are as follows:

I’ve added a variation on JustAPCNoob’s list that features a 1300X and A320, which is nice for those who don’t want to overclock (though you can absolutely use the 1200 with a B350 if you want that couple hundred extra MHz from overclocking), and opted for an SSD because it sounds like all the stuff you’re using it for won’t take up that much space. I personally ran my system on a 275GB SSD for months with tons of games like PUBG and Bethesda games and the like. The SSD is also nice because it gives you room for expandability in the future as you won’t have to move Windows onto a different drive down the road like you would if you planned on getting one later instead of now.

Is there a comparable Intel processor?

Not for that cheap. The 1200 is comparable to an i5, and can be overclocked. You’d need to spend around twice as much for an intel CPU with similar performance.
