The AMD driver thing is over exaggerated, and there is nothing bios issue wise, for AMD graphics cards either.

I would say no. It's a good start, but I would go for the 2060 Super over the 5700XT, it's a much better buy for not a few dollars more. I would also swap your primary boot drive for an M2, and ditch the mechanical HD. Plus you could also get the much newer B550 and get support for Ryzen 4 and 5:

But isnt the 2060 performace wise a bit lower on the scale? or is it because the of high heat output from 5700xt?
Is the 1TB m2 enough? Thank you in advance!!!

I just checked on the prices here and they tend to be like 5-20 more expensive. it comes at 1300+ for me. Is there a build that you can suggest thats a bit cheaper?
 
Your build is reasonable.
A balanced gamer will budget 2x the cost of the processor for the graphics card.
You are spot on there.
If anything, I would suggest starting with a 1tb m.2 pcie ssd.
If and when that gets filled up, it is easy to add more storage later.

Heat doesn't really have anything to do with it. The Radeon 5XXX cards have very shoddy drivers that require frequent BIOS updates in order to get any decent frame rates. The 2060 Super is just an overall better card that gets better frame rates for the same amount of money.

As for storage that is up to you. I generally include a 1TB but that motherboard supports up to 4, and you get ports to add 2 M2 SSD drives. I personally wouldn't use anything else, and there's no reason to buy mechanical storage anymore unless you want something over 2TB.

Yeah thats not true at all. Radeon drivers demolish Nvidia in features and functionality, and them being unstable is just a fallacy as in everyone blames them when they don't know any other way to diagnose the issues in their system. I should know I have flagship cards from both teams. Never had to update a vBIOS in my life, oh except for one I flashed my RX480 to 8gb of VRAM when that whole hidden ram thing went on at its release.

Meanwhile the 5700XT eats the 2060 Super for lunch in most test and is on Par more with a 2070 or 2070 Super depending on the game.

The Red Devil is really the best 5700xt, of the bunch. With your budget, though, a 2070s is doable, and it is faster. You can drop the mechanical drive, for now, and get one later, if needed.
looking at some benchmarks, theyre on par, no? Its like a 100 for a few frames and ray tracing. I'm a bit torn between the 2 😅
