200-300 for SSD with a backup for storage
80-120 for a case
80-150 for memory

Piece together mouse-keyoboard/gamepad.

And spend whatever you can afford on a monitor between 24-27.

If that's chump change then put whatever extra you can into the GPU and CPU.

You're at 1500 and you haven't even touched cooling, wiring, nor software.

You're best bet these days is to just get from one of the custom sites, and hope they have good deals.
