Build I came up with. I’m very new to this computer stuff. I want a computer that can run games at high to ultra with a solid FPS and run on a nice monitor in 1080p. I’m not trying to spend more than $1000. If you know a better build let me know or any suggestions please let me know. Very new to this so I have no idea what I’m doing.

Changed the cooler to the Gammax 400, I have had both and prefer the gammax.
the RAM speed was bumped silghtly
the case was left alone but the changes allowed more for a much better PSU to feed the new parts.

never skimp on a PSU

You dont need a CPU cooler with that Ryzen, it comes with one, that is good!
You can also get a better GPU, for the same price as well the motherboard.

The GPU performance is only slightly lower than the 2060 Super but still plenty for 1080p. Much better PSU than the EVGA BR. All SSD storage instead of having a HDD. Better cooler if you don't want to use the included cooler.
 
Alittle more then your system but a much better build

You can drop down to something like a GTX1660 Super if you do just plan on doing 1080P gaming, but with this you could easily handle 1440P.

Only thing I would suggest that get a ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard instead of MSI specially this Tomahawk, because I have this exact model with 2600, and this board have been giving me nightmares, replacement done 2 times.
