So, im building my first PC ever. My goal is to make 1080p gaming PC that allows my 144hz 24inch monitor to reach its full capasity. In other words, it should push 144 frames at medium graphics in games such as Pubg, fortnite and counter-strike.

Please give me your opinions on this build. :)

Welcome to the forums my friend!

Looks like a good build, and should achieve 1080p 144 quite easily on practically all games, higher than medium too.

There are much better quality PSUs available for the same price or only a bit of a big price increase, that can give you double the warranty, the Masterwatt 550 isn't awful, but not great, and there are much better for a better price:

Power Supply: Corsair TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply ($69.99 @ Newegg) 7 YEAR WARRANTY

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($84.75 @ OutletPC) 7 YEAR WARRANTY

Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($83.89 @ OutletPC) 10 YEAR WARRANTY

If you want to stick to the same price, the TXM is the no brainer. If you want more value for money, an extra $15 gets 3 more years of warranty.

Looks good besides 2 things:
  1. Get a 2060 SUPER the performance gain is worth the money in my opinion.
  2. Please don't try to cheap out on the PSU I understand wanting to save money but I have heard enough horror stories from using a low-quality PSU.

Thanks for your reply!
Okey so PSU needs to be upgraded but other parts look fine for my purpose?

Yes.
A 2060 Super as stated can also yield another performance increase if needed. But the 2060 6G should be fine on high (at least) settings for most games at 1080p 144.
Okey awesome. If I plan on buying the 2060 super, is it just simply better to just buy the 2070? In my country the 2060 super is 535€ and 2070 is 570€.
Edit. Might be overkill for 1080p?

It's not necessarily needed for 1080p no. 2070 is mainly for 1440 gaming.
If it isn't worth the price increase, then don't worry.

If you plan on going to 1440 later, then the upgrade may be worth it to a 2070.
