The Ryzen 2600 is a good CPU and you shouldn't run into any performance issues.

I would personally go with eesti's list, however with the Ryzen 7 2700x if you do not need the crazy single core speeds from intel. It would also save money.

That leaves about $150 to mess with if you really did want an AiO (primarily for aesthetics, in the case of the 2700x), more RGB fans, or to put toward a later CPU upgrade on the AM4 platform.

Or you can still go with Intel, but I doubt you would see any difference if you are targeting only 60FPS/have a 60Hz monitor. If you do, you still should be able to achieve your goals just fine with a 9600k. If you have a 144Hz adaptive sync monitor, then you may see a difference in some games going with the 9600k over the 2700x, and a smaller difference going up Intel's product stack.

They have a deal for a 106$ on a R5 1600 so if you can get it then u can get the RX 590

Avoid the 590. Considering that OP was looking at 2080, that is a massive step down. It is way overpriced for the performance it gives.
