I'd change the CPU to the 2600 and change the RX 590 to the GTX 1070.

If you plan on using your rig with larger games such as battlefield, cod, or overwatch you might want to invest in a 2TB hard drive but other than that this looks great! :)
I don’t plan do intesive gaming, so the SSD should be enough for PUBG, Fortnite and other small games.

The cheapest GTX 1070 i could find was over 1000 Mexican pesos (50 US Dollars) than the RX 590, so the only choice would be as you say changing the CPU. Would it be worth?
 
How does the pricing of the 2060 compare to the 1070 where you are? If the price difference isn't large, the 2060 would likely be the better option. It should be around 15% faster than a 1070, while also having that hardware raytracing support, which could add some better visuals in some games (even if only two titles currently support it). While the 1070 will be very good for 1080p today, having that extra performance headroom could be useful as future games become more demanding.

From what you said the 2060 looks like a pretty good choice, at newegg here on Mexico the RTX 2060 is 100 Mexican pesos (5 US dollars) more than the GTX 1070. so if i wait a month or so, i could get both RTX 2060 and the 5 2600x.
