$1000 pc budget

Need some helping making a build, I want to spend around $1000. I already have My mouse/keyboard setup and a decent monitor. I play everything from mmorpgs to call of duty, so I just want some nice fps. Thanks in advance

    Greetings Kdad. Here is what I have picked out from our website right at about $1000. I was not sure if you needed a copy of Windows 10 so that is included in the pricing. If you do not, you could easily add another/increase the SSD size, or perhaps change to a RX 5700 XT video card for additional performance.

    CPU: (1) AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Matisse 3.6GHz 6-Core AM4 Boxed Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler ($159.99 EACH)
    Motherboard: (1) ASRock B450 PRO4 AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard ($89.99 EACH)
    RAM: (1) Crucial Ballistix Gaming 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit BL2K8G32C16U4B - Black ($72.99 EACH)
    Case: (1) Cooler Master NR600 MasterBox Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Black ($69.99 EACH)
