This is a very good build, and I would buy it now, the new parts are out in September, 4 months from now. 

Only thing I'd changy about this build is getting an RX 5700 xt instead of an RTX 2060. And maybe get a bigger SSD - 240gb isn't much at all.

Also where is your power supply lol.

Is hardware in Sweden so expensive that you buy it in Germany?

Oh I forgot to write it, I already have a 500W psu and a 1 TB HDD. If I switch to RX 5700 xt I will be out of my budget. Thanks for the help:-)

It's only $40 more but it's so much faster. Don't wait 4 months, but at least wait one week till you have that $40 smh

Right now is not the best time to buy hardware, unless you're really need to have it.

The new stuff is right around the corner.

If you can't wait, at least you wait for the B550 which will be available in a month or two.

With B550 at least you need not worry about compability with 4th gen.

Nope... Ray Tracing is kinda stupid and the framerate loss you get with a 2060 makes the game look and feel worse than the fancy lighting. To fully enjoy ray-tracing even at 1080p, you need something like a 2070 super, otherwise the framerate disadvantage is too much.

The 5700 xt competes with the 2070 super for framerates, it's only 6% slower on average. AMD also has way better driver support. The RX 570, for example, was released more than 3 years ago, and was beaten by the 1050 ti for $150. Today, it beats the 1650 super and competes with the 1660

4 months is not 'right around the corner'.  The best leads so far say official announcement at Computex, which is September 28... Don't even know if it'll happen with the coronavirus. And that's an announcement, we know nothing about a release date. 

My guess is sometime in August we'll get Matisse Refresh.

the use is you dont have import tax between the states, so buying from any other union country is viable option depending on shipping cost. plus you get very good consumer protection

Jesus, I was joking... You didn't get it. That was my point.

Yeah, matisse refresh should be good. It should be halfway to the 4th gen release.

We probably won't even know shit about the 4000 chips till September, and I don't think Matisse Refresh is worth waiting 2 months for, the 3300x is a new chip, They're not going to undercut it in 2 months with more Ryzen 3 chips. The Matisse Refresh chips we've seen so far are the 3800xt and the 3900xt, not in the same league as OP's buying. 

Bad recommendation.

The reason for the use of the German Amazon is due to Amazon not having a site for Sweden. When you type in Amazon.se then it automatically diverts to the German site and of course they will ship to Sweden.
