It can't really be done at that price point. A windows license is a hundred bucks leaving only $400 for the build. Even if you got windows for free and using the cheapest parts you won't get the performance you're asking for. Try looking for a big sale on a cheap prebuilt from Amazon or Newegg.

As @Archaic59 pointed out, this is darn near impossible.

But, why is that your goal? Maybe you should reassess your goal.

  • What games do you want to play (some games demand far less resources than others)
  • What is the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor? Does it have GSync, FreeSync, or neither? Do you already have a monitor at all?
  • Why did you specify 100-200fps? Why does that matter? Are you fine with very low detail settings to get it? Would you be happy with 60fps?
 
I play mostly fortnite, i have a 144hz Free-sync monitor, so i wanted to make a pc to bring the best out of it
You can make a build for around $500-600 (not including windows license) that will get you an average of 60fps at 1080p. Some games will get more and some less depending on the settings you use. Here's 2 examples. You might be able to shave a few bucks off the cost by using lower quality parts but I don't recommend it.

The first build has a 4 core Intel CPU.

I’m making a build and saw that the Radeon RX 570 and a Ryzen5 3400 work well together, but i don’t know what motherboard can support these two or anything else, suggestions?
I also already have a free sync 144hz monitor.

Ryzen 5 3400G is a good choice if you dont want a dedicated GPU. You chose to buy a dedicated GPU. I believe its a better choice to pick anything from Ryzen 5 1600 AF , Ryzen 3 3100 , Ryzen 3 3300X. 3400G even being a 3000 series processor is still based on the last gen ZEN+ architecture. If you choose 3100 , 3300X then you can look for B550 motherboards (supports only ZEN 2 CPU's) otherwise any B450 motherboard will do the job.

I think there were some good answers already posted to the same thread you started a few days ago.

So what if i get a Ryzen 5 1600 with a 570 8g what board would i need?
