Building a high-ish end gaming PC for ~$1000, been about 7 years since my last build

Definitely get the r5 3600; faster than a 8700 non-K in gaming, better upgradability, and much cheaper so you can invest in a better GPU like the 5700XT or 2060S. 5700XT should be 30-40% more performance than a 2060 (if you really want RTX features, get the 2060S).
