The least expensive ($699) machine here is the Lynx Level 1. It comes with a decent AMD processor, but the video is likely to disappoint you. There is no stand alone video card, and you will see gaming at perhaps 20-60 fps at 1080p depending on the game. It will run CSGO just fine at higher settings, but Destiny 2 will be around 25-35 FPS on medium.

If you are just a little capable, you could order that rig and shop for a GPU to install yourself, either right away, or after you see what the RX Vega 11 onboard video can do. Your best price/performance there would be an Nvidia GTX 1660, at around $225. You'd get 60+ framerates at 1080p and higher settings in almost everything at a total of $925 invested. Next best would be an AMD rx580 video card for around $180.

If that doesn't help, the Lynx Level 2 at $999 is a way better rig. A very speedy Intel CPU that will last and last, a much faster 240 GB SSD for your primary drive, and an Nvidia GTX 1650 video card. It will get you to at least double the framerates of the Vega. You will have a better platform for future upgrades. The video will not be as solid as the 1660 or the rx580, but will be very playable.
