I would still buy an aftermarket cooler for your CPU, the aftermarket is almost always better than stock coolers.

Just take a look at this video to see the difference between stock and aftermarket.

Yea probably

Not sure how the stock and the freezer 34 compare, but maybe go for liquid cooler or a noctua fan if you want air

The 3600 if you are manually overclocking.

If you're looking for high frame rate 1080p, the 9600K at this price point is still the winner (and a little cheaper) as seen here:

As you can see, it wins in averages, 1% lows, and notably it wins pretty heavily in 0.1% lows. And that's even in heavily threaded games like Assassin's Creed Origins. The 9600K will also OC quite a bit more.

 

 The 5700 XT is an unbeatable value right now, so good choice there. Here's what I'd do:

 

 

 

I also saved some money on the SSD.
