$500 budget 1080p gaming PC

There probably are a lot of these posts but this PC for my brother is specifically for Fortnite. I'm wondering if it's possible to play at 1080p60 high settings, at under $500. Include $50 for Windows 10, so $450. What cpu/gfx card should I go with

If it's for fortnite, I would go with the GT 1030 or better, the 1050 if you can squeeze it into your budget.

if you are building the pc you can save cost on windows by buying windows 10 oem for 5-10$ on scdkeys,kinguin,etc,and put the money into a good gpu

Changing to i3 8100 adds $15 compared to 2200g + B450 mobo. I think it will be worth the small bump

you could get even cheaper on ebay for 2-3$,I bought mine for 1.5$ and running smooth for almost 2 years now.(As for protection,look for reviews and the off chance you get cheated by a reputed seller,cheated by another one is highely unlikely).My advise is go for R3 1200+Rx570.570 is much faster and better than a 1050ti.

Find techdeals channel on youtube or twitter,he'll put up good deals on hardware on his page.

Hey man, just go ahead and buy a $150 pc off of Newegg, get the i5 4th gen pc with 8gb of ram and you'd be good to go! Then whatever gpu you want. They are so cheap right now its not even funny. But yeah its used, but its no big deal. They last a long time. Just maybe upgrade the storage, you get the windows 10 o/s for free when you buy from them. If you want to pay a lot more, then go ahead and build up a Ryzen 2400G pc, case, fans, mobo, ram, hdd, cpu, cooler, o/s, monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers. You'd be lucky to get in around $500.

If you really can't afford more than $500, you can get a BX300 in 120GB for $22.

Dear God no. The 1030 is such a poor card.

Why? Just use Windows without activation and don't give money to people who are essentially scammers.

Newegg and Amazon will ship you used parts without the e-bay hassle.  Buying non low profile used i7 tower is a REALLY good deal.  Buy i7 mini tower for ~$200, add PSU, add GPU, done for $350.
