Predicted price (Australian)

Budget (including currency): 1.8k AUD

Country: Australia

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I'm not sure but I'm planning to do MS Flight Sim 2020 for fun (so no rig) so I think this would be a good benchmark.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I'm trying to make a build for about 1.8k AUD (which includes the monitor), here's one i've planned. I know it's going to get cheaper in the next month because of the releases here but I'm not sure how much and how much I'll save on black friday and cyber monday.

Unless availability is an issue, you should really upgrade from a 2700X to a 3700X. Also wouldn't hurt to go B550. I don't see anything out of the ordinary other than that. 

Fuck you scalpers, fuck you scammers, fuck all of you jerks that charge way too much to tech-illiterate people. 

Currently using a Alienware Alpha R1, i3-4170t, GTX 860M, upgrading sooner or later.

I was thinking of that but the prices in australia are really high compared to the US and other places. Going from the 2700X ($329 AUD) to the 3700X ($519 AUD) is almost a $200 jump. But yeah i might switch to b550 if there's good deals here.
