Build around MSI R9 390X 8G GPU


I have a desktop that's about 8-10 yrs old. I inherited the above GPU from my son. Would it be worthwhile to build a new system around the above? I'm not a heavy gamer although I enjoy Civilization, Topico, and other similar games. I'm interested in art, video, and audio production, but again, not super high end. I've done a parts selection based on AMD 5950x, but think that might be over-kill. Budget is 2k, which I think should be plenty if I use this GPU. I also have a 500w PSU and a 1TB HD that I could reuse.
