If you want all new parts it's not really possible to build a PC faster than Series X within that budget. Maybe match it but even that is a little questionable. Mind you this is just specs, you also have to keep in mind that games are typically better optimised for consoles so you'll need a little extra horsepower than the series X to match it in game performance.

 

edit: for reference Sony and Microsoft typically sell their consoles either at a loss or fairly close to what it costs them to make since most of their revenue comes from selling games and services which is why it can be difficult to build a matching PC today that matches it within these budget constraints while it's the opposite for PC component manufacturers who get no money from games and services you might buy and play on their components.

5600g for $109, budget B450 board for $80ish, budget case $50ish, cheapest not bad ~500W PSU from the PSU tier list ($50ish??), 16GB DDR4 RAM $50ish (cheap will work)... $50 for a 512GB SSD... at that point everything you have left goes into graphics card - this would probably be like $250ish. Maybe a used 6700XT (new ones are around $290 after rebate)

Not sure if it'll be better than the Series X. Microsoft loses money on each Xbox sale. 

If you have an existing computer... basically upgrade the graphics card and be happy. 

3900x | 32GB RAM | RTX 2080

1.5TB Optane P4800X | 2TB Micron 1100 SSD | 16TB NAS w/ 10Gbe
QN90A | Polk R200, ELAC OW4.2, PB12-NSD, SB1000, HD800

That's actually a nice challenge you set for yourself!

 

You will need to buy the gpu second hand, else it is not going to stay within that budget. Should you able to score a 2080 super for 300 dollars, you might pull it off.
