Go with your pc. The b560 motherboard means you won't be able to overclock the i5-10600k which is the main allure of the k variant. I would also probably say try to find a cheaper cooler for your pre-built, a cooler master hyper 212 Evo will do fine for the 10600k even with overclocking. I think you could also probably find a cheaper z490 motherboard, with those downgrades you might be able to get a better GPU, like an RTX 2060 or a gtx 1660 ti, but I'm not sure. (The GPU market is so messed up nowadays.) Hope this helps.

Thank you ! I could only find the hypermaster 212 led for a good price, would that be a good replacement? And also just so i can clear any confusion you meant choose the pc that was in the pc parts website not the prebuilt right?
