HELP I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO BUY

I built my gaming pc about 5 years ago with my stepdad, and it's getting very slow (shocker) and having problems running the games I want. I have about 1,000$ budget, but I don't know what to buy to make it an excellent gaming system. I've done some mock builds in system builder, but I don't know if my parts are even good or will give me what I want. The games I play include Fortnite, CSGO, Rocket Leauge, and league of legends (which is the only game I can run at medium graphics and get about 50 fps). I would like to run these games at high to very high and get 60 fps at 1080p if that's even possible. Please help!

This is probably the best price to performance system you can build right now with a good motherboard and RAM if you ever choose to upgrade. You can change any parts you'd like, this is just a recommendation. It also comes in well under-budget so you could get an improved monitor because this will run all the games you mentioned well above 60 FPS at 1080p. You could also save a few bucks by reusing your power supply or case if they're still in good shape and of decent quality.

Wattage is fine. The systems @leo1798 and I recommended will use less than 300W. The 600W Corsair unit you have is probably an older, lower quality unit though. I'm guessing CX600 with green label? This one? https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Power/Plug-Type/cx-series-config/p/CP-9020048-NA

 

If you're spending up to $1000 and building a new system you may as well get a new unit.

 

Do you have a list of parts in your old machine? Depending what is in your old machine you might just be able to upgrade something...

It's fine, although for gaming purposes the Ryzen 5 2600 is better, ASUS's motherboards have been lacking recently with MSI being the clear frontrunner with the B450 chipset, the memory is too slow because Ryzen operates better with 3000MHz+ memory, you definitely need an SSD because an HDD would be far too slow, the video card is good, but you can get cheaper, and the PSU is fine. The case doesn't really matter, but the one you shared kind of looks like a hot-box.

That looks okay, though when going with Ryzen CPUs I would recommend getting faster memory, preferably 3000MHz or higher.

You might be better off with the Ryzen 2600 instead of the Ryzen 1700, since the extra cores on the 1700 won't help much in gaming, but the higher core frequency of the 2600 will help. Also the 2600 is $40-$50 cheaper than the 1700.
You should also add a SSD as that will help with the responsiveness of the system.

Lol I have that same exact motherboard I've been trying to get rid of on Craigslist. But from that you can carry over the Hard Drive for extra storage (use an SSD for the Operating System), and even the power supply if you'd like. You can probably get a fair bit on ebay for some of your parts to help with the costs.
