I concur with this build as a build you are looking for an Intel rig. I've been building AMD rigs and saw a deal on an i5-9400, although it is 9th Gen and the one above is 10th Gen, they are similar models and the rig I built matched with a GTX 1070 ran admirably, being utilized for video games and VR. I have no doubt the rig above will do just great. Only deletion in my opinion would be the RTX 3080 because as of today, you cannot get one (in stock) for $699. More realistically, go with an RTX 2060 or 1660 would be a more realistic match.

ok, im taking some options, but one thing, do you guys think that for a i5 9600kf and a gtx 1650 a corsair 600w modular psu is enough?

If it's a decent PSU brand/rating then absolutely no problem with that setup. Even a a cheapo 80+ white 600W psu would have no problem. The 1650 does not eat up much power.

Maybe, but the only function those white PSUs best serve is as a paper weight. They are not good PSUs.

You can't even get those right now, pretty much every GPU of every kind has been picked clean by scalpers and Bitcoin miners. And I'd really hesitate to recommend eBay as a source because you don't know what you are getting.

If you get in the queue for Nvdia and/or EVGA they promised to sell the FE RTX cards at MSR but god only knows how long the line is.
