Hey, im planning on buying myself a new pc, found some parts that should fit together, but could someone check it please.

cpu - Intel® Core™ i5-11600K 3.90 GHz
mobo - Gigabyte B560HD3
psu - Corsair RM650x
ram - Kingston Fury Beast DDR4 16 GB CL16 3200 MHz
case - IBOX Wizard 3 ATX Mid-Tower Black
gpu - havent decided yet, but looking towards gtx 1070/1080/3060

Is there anything i should swap out or something?

Keep in mind that CPU doesn't come with a cooler. Much of the overclocking features of the K CPU will not work on a B560 motherboard. A cheaper 11400 is going to be 90% as fast if left at stock settings.

Which motherboard should i get then? the price difference between 11400 and 11600k is around 30€

Z590 board would let you overclock the CPU by multiplier. A B560 board will still allow for setting the XMP profile on the memory.

Not to say you can't use the 11600k with that board, just be aware that you are paying extra for some features that won't work. It still has the slightly higher clock speeds at stock though.
