Hello, I would like to see what is the best PC I could build with $500 USD.

It is for my cousin, he normally plays on PS4 but wants a PC now, he wants to be able to get 60FPS at 1440p on most games, but the most important game for him is Fortnite. If possible, would it be worth it to go 1080p 144 FPS?

I just need the PC, no OS.

Thank you.
