I’m looking for a certain type of monitor but can’t find it
I am looking for a 1080p hd monitor with hdmi and vga support as well as VESA mount with either 75hz or 144hz or 120hz for under 1-2ms for under $200. Ive been searching but have not found a single one that fits what I am looking for, help would be appreciated :)
This is the best one I have found so far with possibly doing a VGA to HDMI adapter

If that sells out or you are looking for a little more “budget” and don’t mind going for a TN panel, I just picked this up and I absolutely love it.

If you're just starting out, I wouldn't spend a ton. Something like this is a great budget option. Keep in mind that in order to get NVIDIA G-Sync support, you will need a mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable, which would be an extra $10-$15.

Looking for the best gaming pc build for 900$ or around that price.
I have never built a pc before and I’m looking for a build that can run destiny 2, csgo, siege, borderlands 3. I’m really struggling to find something that works. I would love any help if anyone’s willing. If possible I’d like it to work with the monitor I just bought. Thank you for any help in advance :).

Glad you're going with the 3080, I don't know what the rest of your surprise gift entails but you should find out whether or not his monitor is 144hz.
A 144hz monitor is a massive upgrade that's also relatively inexpensive compared to a GPU. This is the monitor I currently use and am very happy with.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KGMQGDT/ref=dp_cerb_3 i would get a cheaper one if it’s just 1080p, for that price a 1440p will be the better choice. Like the LG 27GL83AB

I was looking for the same thing and I came across this monitor on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KGMQGDT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_AGieFbGW9W5G7 I’ve had my pc for about 4 months now and this monitor is great. 24.5”, 1ms response time, and 165hz. It ended up coming with built in speakers, they aren’t terrific, but I wear a headset most of the time so the built ins are great for when I’m lazy. I love this frameless huge monitor for only $180.

This one can get your R2 to 120 Hz, and the quality is awesome. Been using it for a few months with no complaints.

Alrighty, here are my suggestions
1) I own a Ryzen 7 3800X. Don't buy it. The Ryzen 7 3700X is better in every way because it's just as fast but costs less. Put that money towards literally anything else.
2) That motherboard has one Fan header. Don't make my mistake, I learned that the hard way. (had to buy a fan hub)
3) Buy this Sceptre monitor if you can find it for around ~$160 and adjust the color settings and turn on pixel overdrive and G-Sync. I own one and it's worth every penny.
4) That PSU seems to unavailable and the price isn't showing up. You're probably over-budget, and I'd recommend and EVGA or Corsair PSU anyway

What resolution do you prefer? If it is 1080p 1920x1080, this is my monitor and I love it...needs some calibration either by hand or with a calibrator, but bright colors/dark blacks and no bleeds. 144Hz, 165Hz...slap on a monitor arm and you are good to go.

I'm pretty new to PCs. I recently got this monitor (Sceptre E255B-1658A 25" 165Hz) and hooked it up via displayport. My previous monitor was just an old af TV hooked up via HDMI. I've only really had this issue with the new monitor, that I've noticed at least. I thought it was just a bad cable or something so I got a new one, but the problem is still happening. It's not happening often enough to be a major nuisance, but I'd rather it not happen at all.
The bar is different sizes every time and sometimes I can go like 5-10 minutes without it happening but other times it can happen several times in like 10 seconds. I notice it a lot playing Minecraft and very little playing Rocket League. Not sure if that changes anything, but figured it might be worth noting. I've also noticed it happen when I'm not gaming.
Let me know if I should provide my pc specs or any other info :)

Can your PC build push 144 FPS consistently at 2560x1440p etc? If not, then a 144 Hz monitor isn't totally getting its value.
If you just care about high FPS/hz gaming at 1080p, then I like the Sceptre E255B-1658A. It's 165hz and reaches 1ms with overdrive turned on. It's only $180, and comes with the DisplayPort cable. The build is quite sleek, if a bit fragile, but a great deal if you take care of it.

Alright, thats a pretty hefty budget, so you can go for some high-end stuff. I would say wait for November for the Ryzen gen5 CPUs to come out because they blow the current generation of Ryzen out of the water. If you want to go with Team Blue (intel), I couldn’t advise you there as I don’t keep up with them very well.
Definitely a B550 mobo at least, or a higher-grade X570. Again, waiting a couple months for the next gen, X670, will get you some extra future-proofing and will keep you from regretting paying that high price for a slightly older chipset since they usually drop the prices for the last gen when the new stuff comes out. (Been there, done that)
Any PSU that is at least Bronze and has 40% more wattage than you need will be fine. If you plan on making bigger upgrades or adding more components, definitely get an even more powerful PSU. I didn’t think about expanding my storage and now I can’t add my third HDD due to power overdraw.
As far as monitors, it depends. You want high refresh rate? High resolution? Ultra widescreen? Standard? Me personally, I love high refresh rate, gives me plenty of frames to react and it has definitely made me improve. A super good value monitor I got is this Sceptre one and hot dang did I get a good buy. Obviously with your budget you could probably go for something even better like an actual G-Sync monitor, but many AMD FreeSync monitors like the one I linked will still work.
For storage, Samsung SSD, the highest quality SSD thats out there. I have one that’s two years old and it’s still spittin’ out data just as fast as the day I got it new. I believe the 940 EVOs just came out, may have the numbers wrong, but they look space greyish compared to the standard black they had last year. Also recommend getting a big HDD (1-3 TB) for storing other games and big files.
Cooler Master makes some excellent cases. Make sure you think about where that tower is going to go. My tower is in a small, poorly ventilated compartment in my desk, so my only option to keep the computer cool is to go with the MicroATX formfactor and make sure my case has front ventilation. You’d be surprised how much of a difference a cool PC performs than a hot one. (If you go MicroATX, make sure you get a motherboard with the same formfactor)
Also if you want to pinch a hundred dollar bill, you don’t have to buy Windows. You can download an ISO image for free and install it without a product key. Only difference it makes is you can’t change personalization settings, so that bright background and light mode are stuck on. Or you can go with Linux, but I’d recommend sticking with Windows for a good plug-n-play experience.
If you got any more questions, don’t hesitate to ask :D

I have a 165hz monitor right now that I absolutely love, and is cheaper than most 144hz I've found. I considered a BenQ monitor but I hated the thick bezels, so this one was much more appealing to me. I absolutely love it and have no complaints, but then again it's only the second other monitor I've had. I still highly recommend it though.
