Id say that looks pretty good, overclocking though, id recommend a better cooler or a liquid cooler.
Also maybe a 700w power supply, or a gold one, just to be safe with overclocking everything to the max, and if you want to upgrade things in the future, a better power supply makes things easier, but you don't have to.

Here a some things id recommend:

Cooler Master MasterLiquid 240L
Corsair 650W RM650 Gold Power Supply
Noctua NH-U12S DX-3647 CPU Cooler (if you want to stick to air cooling)

so i found this power supply, is this one fine?
and this is the cooler i found. i would like to stick with air cooling because i know nothing about liquid cooling and it sounds like a hassle.
Silverstone Argon AR09-115XP 27.9 CFM Ball Bearing CPU Cooler
anything else you can reccomend?
 
Depends on what you're paying.
Aside from that, I think you've got a well balanced system picked out. The only thing that sticks out to me is the cooler choice. The Hyper 212 is older than the 212 Evo which is older than the 212 black.
 
It appears you're looking to spend $30 on a CPU cooler. However, your current choice (60mm fan...) is worse than the Hyper 212. TBH, the past couple weeks has been a bit of a "sales drought"

Hyper 212 EVO can be had for $30 when it's on sale.
DDR4-3200 CL16 = $70 - has short heat spreaders so they don't interfere with tower coolers. Also CL16 instead of the 3600MHz/CL19 kit you had. Should be pretty equivalent.

Don't suppose you live near a Microcenter Store? They have i5-9600K = $200 and you save $30 if you buy a mobo+CPU from them.

i5-9600k + overclock = you need a better CPU cooler than the Hyper 212.

It is a good budget item for a lower performance chip at stock freq and voltage.
It is not a good cooler for high performance.

do you have any coolers that are around the same price but would work for overclocking the i5?
