can i get a source or some reading material? I want to look into this before I pull the trigger, which I will be doing soon within the next month.
I myself overclock my rx 580 although the mobo has no overclocking options. Only CPUs are overclockable through mobo...overclocking of gfx has always been independent
This link will show the fps you will get in your rig compare it with other cpus and see if there is some vast difference-

That's actually a good rig for they money, the only thing I would say:
1- Have one SSD (500Gb) and one HDD (1 TB or bigger) for games and heavier files
2- If you manage to find 50 extra you could easily get a 5600 XT which would be a big jump in gaming performance, worth the money.

thats a really good point, I might change to the 5600xt. Also I can't do hdd its too slow.
 
I agree with the SSD and HDD swap. If this is gaming rig, I would rather have that large storage seeing how games like CoD are 200GB. I think it might just get woese down the line.

I also agree that the GPU upgrade to a 5600X would be more appropriate.

Appart from that - looks good.
