Current system is about 9 years old and needs to be replaced. Probably going to start buying parts towards a new build. I currently run Overwatch, a couple of MOBAs, Sims; but plan to pick up Cyberpunk for PC eventually. I'm not super rich but want to get the best performance I can at a decent budget. Any constructive input would be appreciated.

The current items I am looking at are:
SSD - 1 TB WD
CPU - 9th Gen i7
Mobo - Gigabyte Aorus
GPU - GeForce 2060

Ill probably ad a HDD as a memory drive. Even this stuff is a little high in my budget and will have to be saved for. Thank you for any input.

What's your monitor's resolution?
 
I'm going to assume your resolution is 1080P.

You might want to go with a B460 instead, for the locked CPUs there's no point using a Z mobo.
You can save money and even has some boost on that CPU.

I put that board in there for the 3200MHz RAM support.

See it in this review,
