Hey. I'm trying to get into PC gaming, and I think I have found a good build, the parts are as follows:
  • CPU Intel Pentium G4400
  • GPU GIGABYTE GeForce GT 1030
  • RAM Patriot Memory Viper Elite Series DDR4 4GB 2400 RAM
  • HDD Hitachi Ultrastar 7200RPM 1TB HDD
  • PSU EVGA 450 BT 80+ Bronze-Certified PSU
  • MOBO GIGABYTE GA-H110M-A
  • CASE Thermaltake Versa H15
If you have another build that is better for around the same price ($340 USD if I calculated correctly) then I would love to see it. But onto the main topic: I need a monitor that can do 1080p, with at least a 60hz refresh rate. Once again, I am new to PC, and I am still on console as of right now.

This build is already obsolete. You are better off buying second hand stuff with ddr3 build, or buying second hand ps4 pro or xbox one x.

Since RTX graphics are released, you may find a bargain deal.

Everything depends entirely on what you would like to do with the computer. What games would you like to play? If you're playing older games or something ridiculously well optimized such as Fornite - you should be okay.

Keep in mind the fact that the monitor might be overkill. Are you really going to be able to play your games at 1080p 60FPS?

As mentioned above, this build is already obsolete. Also, there is no viable upgrade path. Which is one of the benefits of having a PC over a console.

If you're interested in price to performance you may want to consider an AMD Ryzen CPU for future builds.

If it is possible to wait and save up - I'd highly recommended that option. If that is not possible then you should buy a used system. You will get something better than this for the same price.

Like I said, I'm done with console. I don't want another Xbox or Playstation.

Yeah, I was thinking of stuff like Borderlands 2, CS:GO, Fortnite, and maybe some Payday 2.
