Is it possible to install macOS on the following build with these components :

 

Cpu: amd Ryzen 5 2600

Mobo: Asus rog strix b450-e gaming 

Graphics card: Asus rtx 2060 6gb oc evo

Ssd: sata3 and pcie aic nvme 

 

Thank you in advance. 

Install yeah, usable nope, the last Nvidia GPU to receive macOS support was the 1000 series. Your 2060 will only work in software mode which makes the entire OS chug and is pretty much unusable.

It will use the intel baked in gpu.

 

ontopic: If you want to use a Graphics card use AMD. Nvidia no longer supports mac os .

it might as apple continued support until the 900 series. Any way, you can check out the linus tech tips video on how he got it working with a ryzen cpu and i think a nvidia titan xp

Take a look at this video. Quinn goes through how to setup the installer and OpenCore. You would want to get an AMD GPU since those for the most part would be supported natively by macOS. With Nvidia, 2000 series GPUs are not supported. I presume because of the dirty laundry between Apple and Nvidia.
