Hello everyone, its been few years since i built a PC. I'm going to build a new PC for my nephew. He'll be using it for "school" and will be playing Fortnite, GTA and some more games. I dont think he'll be playing Cyberpunk. I've been thinkering with components and this is kind of what may work well and is in a budget.
I'd like other peoples opinion on this build and what might be wrong or what should be changed. Thanx in advance

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor
MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard
Kingston HyperX Fury RGB 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (or another 2x8gb RAM)
ADATA XPG SPECTRIX S40G RGB 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
2x Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (i have these 2 lying in a drawer)
Asus Radeon RX 570 8 GB STRIX GAMING OC Video Card
Thermaltake Smart RGB 700 W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply
Thermaltake Versa C21 RGB ATX Mid Tower Case
will probably buy 2/3more fans to put in the pc

2 Sata slots will have to stay empty because of M2 but thats fine.

Hi Nemesia, that was a super quick reply, thanx. PcPartPicker lists this at around 670$ with some discounts. Since im not in the USA, dont use $ and prices here are quite different i cant compare it directly but lets say 700-800& is maximum.

niice, thanx Nemesia. I appreciate it.
I got few problems with that list though: i cant find that MB, GPU and PSU over here (at least from the companies i work with). RAM doesnt make much difference in cost anyway so i can get either ripjaws or kingston or some other RAM. I know this SSD is better and pcpartpicker says the price is almost the same but prices here are different. That Kingston SSD is around 60$ more expensive here than Spectrix one (for which i've read some solid things tbh). I was trying to stay away from Mirco ATX MBs also but it isnt a dealbreaker.
How big of a jump in quality (or futureproofing) is going from Ryzen 5 2600x to Ryzen 5 3600 ? 3600 is much more recent but both have same amount of cores/threads and freq is the same.
As i said i kinda lost track of the latest tech so i'm learning/reading online as we speak about it so bear with me. And thanx again
