Looking for some feedback on my potential build. I'm aiming for definitely solid 1080p gaming with the ability to reach into 1440p, even if I can't get the highest settings. Don't need ultra level performance, just solid a some mid-tier setting.

Any thoughts?

Cheers!
 
Keep in mind, the 5700 offers more performance than the 1660ti or 2060, but does draw more power. I would go for a 650w ideally, but 550 can work fine.
As mentioned above, it should be fine, but if you want want more quality and safety, then a better PSU will do...

Thanks for taking a look! If you recommend heading up to the 2060, any thoughts on that model vs the amd 5700?

Usually most posters here have an affinity towards NVidia cards. If you are devoid of such inhibitions, 5700 can give you beter performance around that price...

Thanks everyone! As far as case goes, do you think fractal design focus g is still solid or with this potentially more intensive rig should I upgrade or just get more case fans? Also, thoughts on whether the Wraith Stealth that comes with the Ryzen 3600 will be sufficient or will I need a better CPU cooler selection?

Focus G is a solid case for that budget range. It comes with all the right features along with air flow and cable management.
As for the cooler, its pretty solid for stock clocks and some mild OC. Go for an aft if you wanna push the clocks really hard. I would suggest, try it first and then think about and upgrade if you are unsatisfied.

Looking at deals right now you'd lose some performance but the Ryzen 7 2700X would give you another $50 of room to improve. You would gain plenty multi core performance
