No, the problem is that if you want to upgrade your CPU and GPU it's either used parts or a much higher budget. GPU + RAM is barely doable with 200$, so 250$ for RAM + GPU would be fine but for the CPU you'd either have to pay 250-300$ for an obsolete CPU that's not any faster than a new 100$ CPU or buy a new mobo and new CPU which with RAM and GPU would still bring you close to 400$.
So my suggestion is better RAM first, which might fix your problem in Valorant.
Check GPU usage in Valorant (now or after getting the RAM) to figure out if it's the GPU holding you back or something else. If it is buy a new GPU.
If neither was the problem or you still want more fps in TF2 start looking for a used CPU compatible with your mobo.

Alright I'll look into buying another stick of RAM then in that case. The current RAM stick I have in my pc is: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4-2400 CL16 Memory. I know you mentioned trying to get the same model, but the only ones I could find have inflated prices or would have to be purchased used. Do you have a recommendation for RAM with the same specs that you think I should get? Or should I just try to get the cheapest possible?

Depends on how you define noticeable. It's not about the 8 GB, it's mostly about doubling the bandwidth. Valorant is most likely going to see the most improvement. It seems to have been a common problem during beta

but I don't know how bad it still is.
RAM is the cheapest part you can upgrade though, so I think that's where you should start.
For Valorant and GTA V the next step would probably be a GPU ugprade but you can barely afford that on its own, but for TF2 you'd want a better CPU and without replacing the mobo that means used parts (and replacing the mobo doesn't really make the whole ordeal any cheaper).

The goal is 150+ fps in all situations in game for Valorant at 1080p but if you don't think I can upgrade much at the $200 price range, what would you suggest at $250 or even $300?

Fps seem a bit low for that CPU and GPU. Buy another stick of RAM with the same specs (size, frequency, timings and voltage, ideally the exact same model though) and see how much that helps. 2400 MHz isn't ideal, not much you can do about that without finding a cheap Z mobo though (replacing the mobo just for getting to 2666 isn't worth it), but Valorant doesn't seem to like 8GB or dual channel so let's get both of those fixed first.
What other games?

Do you believe adding 8 more gbs of RAM alone is going to give me a noticeable improvement in all the games I play? In terms of talking about trying to get better performance in other games, I'm just looking for an overall performance boost to my computer, but if I had to name a couple: GTA V, TF2 (currently performs fine in 6s but in more populated servers it dips), and other games ill play every now and then with friends like Warzone and Fortnite

Thinking about trying to upgrade my computer with a budget of around $200. Mainly playing Valorant these days and my frames are dropping below 100 and sometimes below 60 depending on how hectic the situation is. I'd like to be able to play other games with better fps as well.

CPU is i5-6500 and gpu is gtx 1050 ti 4gb. Full part list is here.

Been out of the pc part world for a few years now so any help is appreciated, thanks.
