IMO 3200C16 is a better fit for Ryzen 5 3600

I would do:
Ryzen 5 3600 $200
B450 or X470 board such as Asrock X470 Taichi $160 currently / X570 Aorus Elite if future upgrades $200
* If you go for Asrock X470 Taichi you need it flashed
Crucial Ballistix sport LT 2x8GB 3200C16 (Micron E-die) $60-80 , or Gskill Sniper X Hynix CJR 3600C19 ~$80
Corsair MP510 960GB for $125
MSI RTX 2070 Gaming X for $410 until RX 5700 series comes with aftermarket cards (RTX 2070 is faster than $410+ RTX 2060 Super and the cheapest RTX 2060 non-Super cards are $330ish); less than that you probably want to look at the GTX 1660 Ti Ventus for $255 (or RX 580 8GB cards for $160-170 to wait it out for RX 5700 series or to fit a $100ish 1080p freesync monitor)
Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550/650W ~$77
Case: Phanteks P350X $55

GTX 1660 Ti would put it at $950ish so I don't think you want to go lower than GTX 1660 Ti, considering that that's the cheapest card with GDDR6 / HBM2
