Hello good people, I'm planning my second PC Build. My first one I've done completely on my own, and it didn't went very well. This time I want to ask you for your opinion on my part choice. If there is something I should reconsider.

https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/Pk2M8J

I will reuse the some parts from my current PC
CPU Cooling: AMD Wraith Prism
Case: be quiet! Pure Base 500 Windowed
PSU: Seasonic Focus GX-650W Fully Modular
SSD: Samsung 860 QVO 1TB

It's going to be used for gaming, occasional light video editing (cutting, rotating, playback speed etc) and CAD Construction using Creo Parametrics
Games to be played: Forza Horizon 4, Dirt Rally 2.0, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Rocket League, Trackmania 2020. Considering buying MS Flight Sim later on

In future 1440p@60FPS high, right now 1080p@75FPS ultra, cos too low budget for a 1440p monitor

Buying parts in next 2 months, waiting for black Friday and pre-holiday deals. Buying in Germany. Budget is around 800-900€.

Thank you for your input
 
This should be better...

Hello, thank you for your inputs

I suggest you get a better CPU cooler eg Coolermaster 212.

The RX5600XT wont do 1440p at 60fps. But it should be OK on most games at 1080p and 75fps - you might need to drop some game settings in some games.
I planned to use the Wraith Prism just because I already have it, so I want reuse it. I may consider the be quiet Pure Rock 2 Black in the future. Is it any good? I got a Pure Wings 2 120mm PWM lying around, so I could have a push-pull configuration.
You mean the 5600XT won't run 1440p@60FPS on high or on ultra?

Is there a possibility of ATX Motherboard? I'm currently having a µATX, and my network card is uncomfortably near my GPU.

Then you wont need onboard wifi. The stock cooler is fine unless you are overclocking...

I may consider the be quiet Pure Rock 2 Black in the future. Is it any good? - It will way better than the stock cooler.

You mean the 5600XT won't run 1440p@60FPS on high or on ultra? It depends on the game and the settings but yeah
See https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-radeon-rx_5600_xt#:~:text=Our Verdict,at its $300 price point.
Okay, I'll think about the cooler.

I see, I was checking some more reviews around and most of games I am currently playing should be fine. For my two most demanding games (Dirt Rally 2 and Trackmania 2020) it got average over 60fps on max settings 1440p with 1% minimum at around 55fps. But I can put few graphics settings down to get stable 60...
But MS Flight Sim is a hard wall. I would be lucky to get over 45fps even on 1080p with high settings.

I wont bet on the 5600xt for 1440p or even 1080p Ultra for most games. 5700xt should however cover all the bases fine.

I see. I just know my current GPU (RX580) can handle most of my games I'm currently playing at least on 1080p@60fps on ultra. I am aware that 5600xt won't be able to 1440p ultra on newest AAA games, but I was hoping I could get 1440p high on what I play.
I'll keep 5700xt in mind, and if the prices go down thanks for the RX6xxx, then I may grab it.
