I was thinking about something like this ASRock Radeon RX 580 Phantom Gaming D OC 8GB GDDR5 256-bit, GIGABYTE B450M DS3H, AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6GHz box, Corsair VS Series VS650 80+ 650W PSU , HyperX Fury Black 8GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16. Any suggestions ? My budget is 600 euro at most. Still not sure if ill need a case , storage or ssd, ive got those in my old pc, but if the price lets it why not. Any help is appreciated.

If you are using this rig for gaming, I would think long and hard about whether using a last gen Amd CPU in order to save ~$60 is a good idea. If you absolutely cannot afford the $200 3600, I would go with an I5-9400F for about the same price as the 2600. You will get as much or more than a 20% boost in performance in games and everything really with either option, just by using current gen CPU.
It sounds like you have a budget worthy of current gen IPC, I would not cheap out on this. If it means not getting a pretty case, this would be a good reason to stick with old faithful for now. You can always get another case they are giving them away all the time usually with an old mb/cpu/ram as well, so you might have to recycle some of that yourself. Just look on Craigslist/offerup in your area.
Good luck on your build!
