New PC

Before I bite the bullet and buy these parts, is there anything I should change? I'm not overclocking anything and I plan on using the PC for 1080p gaming at 60fps+. (Games like GTA V and Apex Legends)

Should this PC be able to handle that?

It should definitely work for what you want it to work for, if not at ultra, than close to in most games. My only advise would be:

 

1. If you're comfortable buying used, you can get some much more powerful hardware for the same price, or the same hardware for less. Nothing wrong with buying new, however.

 

2. If you do want guaranteed ultra on the majority of games, maybe go a little stronger on the GPU, up to you though.

 

3. Make sure 500Gbs is enough storage for you, before my latest reset I had about 30 games, which took up about 600-700Gbs, if you don't plan on having many of games at a time, or don't mind having to deal with multiple drives later on, 500Gbs isn't bad to start with. I've personally never surpassed 1Tb storing multiple games and server files for said games at a time. 

 

Good luck with your new build!

Thanks for the feedback. If I were to get a 2060 instead would I be able to play on ultra comfortably?

The 1660 can overclock to 1660 Ti levels of performance. It would be fine stock...

Save a bit on the power supply and get a HDD.

As for the cpu , I've heard the stock cooler is very poor. I don't plan on overclocking the cpu so would the stock cooler would be ok or not?

The stock cooler is actually quite good, at least compared to Intel ones. You'd probably even be able to overclock a bit if you wanted to.

BTW, didn't notice it, go for the B450 AORUS M instead of that MSI.
