It's ok, but you can significantly optimize it.
change cpu i5-8600k -> i7-8700 (gives hyperthreading, better performance in multi-threaded workloads),
motherboard - you have selected rather expensive model. You can significantly save on this,
change graphics card GTX 1660 -> GTX 1660 ti (significantly better performance).

I have another question, should I go for the ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming or just ASRock Z390 motherboard you mentioned in the pcpartpicker list?

The 8700x system is good, but the 3600 beats the i7 in games and saves money allowing you to get a better gpu. Spending the extra money on the gpu will allow you to get much better performance.

You really don't want to spend on a motherboard more money than on the CPU.. unless you really need a specific feature.
Get a cheaper and good one and spend the rest for a better GFX

I am a bit picky about AMD, maybe it's my personal preference. But I will consider that option as well. Thank you.

Actually, I need a system with Intel+nvidia combo for my deep learning workstation.

I have plan to upgrade the cpu to 9 series and use the current one to make a cluster in the future. Thank you for your suggestions.
