Not sure what settings you plan on running games at, but this would be good for ultra-ish settings 1080p @ 60+ FPS (1440p would also be possible), with nearly all AAA titles.

If you want to go the corners of your budget, you can bump the GPU up to a 2070:

I'd swap the motherboard for an MSI B450 Tomahawk Max, to avoid any BIOS update issues. No real complaints with the rest of it.

The B450-F is 3rd Gen ready out of the box so there wouldn't be any need for BIOS updates.

Hmm, ok. I didn't know that there were any 3rd gen ready Asus B450's, good to know.

Yeah, when I'm going through motherboards, I check the manufacturer website for 3rd gen out-of-the-box support. It takes time but it's worth it, you can find cheaper solutions which won't give any problems that way.
