Hello, I'm currently looking to spend around 6-700 bucks on a new system. Now I know it wont get me a the monster rigs but I hoping to get over 60fps 1080p on high settings, on games such as RB6,Warzone,WoW,BDO,Apex,Valorant etc.. Mostly MMOS and FPS games. I'm going to pull my SSD and HDD from my old system so I wont be needing any storage. I would love if I could get it all from microcenter because i have one around the corner and could go tomorrow to get everything.

What I'm upgrading from

i5 3470
8gb generic ram (idk the brand)
450W evga bronze certified PSU- Skeptical about re using this only out of the fear since I've had it so long something will happen and toast all my new parts lol. If that's not actually something id have to worry about I wouldn't mind re using this also
Gigabyte GA h67n itx board
Evga 450 BT 450watt 80 + bronze certified
Roswell FBM-x1 case

Thanks so much for your time

Here is what I recommend you get for that ~700 dollars budget.

Ryzen 3600
B550 Tomahawk
2x8GB 3600MHz CL16 RAM Kit
GTX 1660 Super
A good brand and model PSU from Corsair or Seasonics. 650 Watts or 750 for future GPU upgrade headroom.

You can upgrade the CPU and the GPU later down the road with that board.

If that's too close to 800 dollars you can buy a lower Corsair PSU model like the Corsair CX or TXM. You can change the board to a cheaper B550. Don't forget that this is with the CPU stock heatsink. It's good enough but it's a bit loud. Add 40 dollars for a decent air cooler if you want.
