With a budget like that, I'd go for the 980 pro instead of the 970 Evo. I'd also spend less on a cpu cooler to go for a cheaper yet better performing Arctic liquid freezer II. I don't know if you have a specific look for the build in mind.

if only gaming, go for 5800x. it's better in gaming than the 10900k and it will be cheaper when you factor in the motherboard.

 

also, a 10900k and a 3090 in a nzxt h510 means you can also bake pizza inside (case with poor airflow, gets very toasty).

 

what I'd do with your budget:

For what reason? 5800X is both better and cheaper for gaming.
