I'm puzzled by the question. The motherboard is modern & accepts the latest available CPUs & RAM, so why would you ask if it's "still decent"? There are plenty of other B450 boards that are cheaper so a better question might be, "should I spend $90-100 for the ASRock or get a Gigabyte or MSI for about $75?"

Here's your $100 CPU: https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-5-...

Here's RAM to go with it. A little more than you wanted to spend, but if you get a cheaper motherboard, that will make up for it: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb...

If you look at this GPU hierarchy list, the only two in the $80 range are the last two, the GT1030 or RX550:
