I have chosen a Cool Master H500 for my case, it's cheap and large (ATX) with huge 220mm intake fans so overall great for cooling.

For a LGA 1151 motherboard I chose the MSI Z390-A PRO it's cheap but also has good reviews on amazon so I don't see any issues apart from less modern ports on the back right?, I didn't read of any cooling issues.

I already own ddr4 ram, SSD, corsair 110i AIO, 550w corsair power supply by looking at pcpartpicker for the power usage I think 550w is okay but I'm totally fine buying a new one.

I cannot decide on a CPU and GPU
I own a full HD 144hz monitor which would make you think if it's not 2K or 4K just buy- I don't know 2060s or 5700 but I like to play modern games, metro exodus, outer worlds, BFV, red dead redemption 2 etc etc and I basically want to run them on as high setting with with as many frames possible, maybe I'm blind but I notice fluidness/snappiness etc more than 2K resolutions or even maybe stretching it slightly some 4K games I don't like 60fps.

My budget isn't too helpful because the Irish market doesn't translate well to the majority of users here, but I'd say I'm flexible I'd be extremely happy at 1,000 euro but would be willing to go to 1,500 euro since I would like this system to last me years to come, my previous system is hitting 4 years old in April of this year.
I will only game on this system, still I am really open to some overkill for longevity.

I just don't how much the CPU matters for gaming.
A huge thing that worries me, isn't new CPU and GPU releases bound to be around the corner within months? should I wait? I thought CES past would of had some info. I can wait if it's a smart choice if anyone knows the rough time release of newer GPUs.

I did a comparison of common parts in my budget for the (new) market here by cheapest, all prices are in euros:​
i5 9600k = 170​
i7 9700k = 419​
i9 9900ks = 548​
Ryzen 5 3600x = 206​
Ryzen 7 3700x = 330​
Ryzen 7 3800x = 375​
Ryzen 9 3900x = 520​
RTX 2080s = 723​
RTX 2070s = 560​
RTX 2060S = 428​
1660ti = 291​
RX 5700 XT = 466​
RX 5700 = 361​
Everything else will cost me:

MOBO = 115

Case = 115

The more cores the better for the future for instance my pc is 10 years old and I slapped a 1070 in it and it still plays games well due to having 12 cores and 24 threads and perhaps wait for the rx5900 series to lunch I’m not too sure of what they will cost but it’s likely they are gonna be truly next gen .
