Building PC for my Sister - Budget $600 - $700
I haven't been on here since I build my PC 3 or 4 years ago but everyone was super helpful at the time so here we go again.
My sister wants to play some city building games, probably the sims 3 and just some steam indie games like stardew valley. I know most of those aren't going to kill a PC but for city building games I assume a good CPU is needed, she isn't that fussed on graphics and that can always be added later
And the budget doesn't include peripherals ike monitors, mouse, etc, I have plenty lying around.
An RX 460 or GTX 1050Ti can do a bunch of heavy lifting for 1080p. You may want to wait a few weeks for AMD to announce the full spread of Ryzen CPUs, because you should be able to get an i5 equivalent for very cheap.
