    Hello @Ezekiel, only thing I would change is instead of the ryzen 5 2600, the 3600 goes on sale regurally for 159 bucks and Microcenter always runs 20$ off when combined with select Mobo's.  So might be able to snag an equivilent or same Mobo and get a generation newer cpu just something to look into.  Also currently Microcenter has this rx590 on sale at least online which would be a nice step up for like 30 bucks.  But if your trying to stay closer to 800 with tax then your setup is great and I would just look into the 3600 since honestly I'm sure your couch can spot you the extra cents needed to go to a 3600 currently lol.  Also I noticed you didn't have and hard drives, is that because you already have some you plan on throwing in it?  If not I would look into getting at least a 128gb SSD/nvme drive to boot from since the boot times is so much nicer and you will get better performance out of spinning drives just by moving window/linux off of them.  Enjoy your build
