FPS are for beginners. All you need to do is run wifi(make sure you get packets loss) & peek peoples.

There's an online Dell deal that constantly pops up (holiday stuff I presume) on a Ryzen 7 with an RX580 for 750, if you want a GTX1060 with it, it's like 850. It's a pretty good deal for a good cheapy prebuilt beginner computer.

If it's your first time, you can go to a brick and mortar shop and check out what they have, sometimes places like Fry's have some ridiculously good deals, just make sure you do more research before purchasing.

For 1080p you want a GPU of a..

Gtx 1060 6gbs or higher the highest is a 1070 gtx no need to go past that for 1080p.

For the AMD side you want a Rx 580.

The cheaper route is the 1060 or 580.

For the cpu Intel i5 skyline series

For the AMD side Ryzen 1600 or better.

Just find a Motherboard combo with the cpu and mobo and the GPU listed above and your set.

16gbs of RAM at minimum no less games now a days use a lot.

A 120gb or more SSD for the OS.

And a 2tb HDD or better for storage, right now frys has a external 5tb HDD for $119 do pick that up.

Other then those your all set.
