Hello, this is my first post in here, hope you are all doing great, i'm looking for an advice on a build, i was thinking on a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU, but other than that i don't know which parts will work together with that CPU, or if there is other that i should consider, my budget is like 900 to 1000 USD and i hope that with this budget could build a mid tier gaming pc, at least to play some titles at 1080p, but i will like to have room to buy a pair of headsets because the current one i have is broken and will need a new one, thank you in advance for your response and hope you have a great day.

A balanced gamer will budget about 2x the cost of the processor for the graphics card.
I might suggest a i3-10100 for $120, a B460 based motherboard $70 and a stronger graphics card like a $300 GTX1060ti.
You might want to initially use the intel integrated graphics if the rumored RTX3060 should launch soon.
Here is a review of the i3-10100 which holds it;s own against the R5 3600X
