Unless you're getting a GTX 1060 6GB graphics card on the cheap ($100 or so) it may be a viable option. If you're looking at current retail prices in the $200-$300 domain - it's a definite NO NO. Newer GPUs for around $200-$250 deliver anywhere around 15%-30% better performance. Something like a GTX 1660 (10-15% gains) / GTX 1660 SUPER (25-30% gains).

For a complete recommendation, whats the total budget? and your local currency (eg. GBP/USD/CAD/etc)?

Great budget for a gaming build!!

If you're targeting 1080p gaming @ 60fps (assuming your display may be locked at 60hz), the following for a $1000 would do the job very nicely:

At this point an AIO cooler is optional. Personally I prefer air coolers with liquid heatpipes as they run quieter, last longer and are far more consistent with reliability.


SECONDLY:

If you're targeting 1080p 144hz for higher refresh rate gaming, a beefier GPU is achievable without crossing the $1500 threshold

Eg.

Keep in mind, if you rather save money there are the more affordable options for higher refresh rate gaming: RTX 2060, RX 5700, RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 and RX 5700 XT (in performance order)


THIRDLY:

As you are probably aware already, DX 12 and a handful of games are already utilising 8 cores for gaming. You may appreciate a 8 core CPU for a more durable system (future proofing). This can be achieved either via opting for a intel i7-9700K or a Ryzen 3700X. Preferably a Ryzen 3700X on a platform which will see further upgrades in 2020. This is achievable within $1500.

I've left the cooler out as the 3700X bundles in a pretty decent stock cooler (wraith prism). Feel free to opt for an aftermarket solution, if desired.

oops I forgot to mention... I wouldn't bother with intel CPU's unless you're planning on overclocking. This year AMD has pretty much stolen the limelight or pulled the rug from under intel. Essentially 3rd GEN Ryzen is delivering on par performance with the inclusion of multi-threaded support. Furthermore the AM4 socket is open to another upgrade path which will see CPU's launching towards the end of 2020. A more future-proof solution. Where intel at stock marginally gains advantage is single threaded speeds but in all fairness the performance gain is not enough to overturn the AMD proposition.
