I built a new computer about 6 months before the pandemic and I've been very happy with it.
Here's what my build looked like.
I bought everything at our local MicroCenter.
Actually this is the first build, but I had a bad component and returned everything easily to MicroCenter and then bought a slightly different Gigabyte Mainboard that included wifi.

I highly suggest the Gigabyte Mainboards with the built-in m2 drive slots -- very fast.

MainBoard - GIGABYTE B450M DS3H AM4 1 42.99
CPU - Ryzen Chip (6core with threads x2 12 Cores) AMD RYZEN 5 2600X WRAITHS[^] 139.99
16GB RAM - 348201 IPSG 16GB 2X8GB DDR4 3200 KIT 1 77.99
Power supply - 976076 CORSAIR CXM 650W 80+B SM PSU 1 69.99 69.99
Basic Case - 719427 CORSAIR SPEC02 REDSHIFT ATX CASE 1 69.99 69.99
M2 drive - 748939 SAMSUNG E 500GB 970EVO NVME M.2 SSD 1 79.99
GEForce GTX 1660 video card (purchased from a friend )

I ran dual-boot Win10 / Ubuntu until I discovered (after 30 years of Windows use) that I like Ubuntu better now than windows. Now I'm all Ubuntu over there. but I also have a laptop running an R7 and Windows 10.
Good luck
