I think 8 cores would be the safe bet for current and future triple A games. Mainly to match console hardware. If you want go higher end, you can looks at 10850K/10900K on intel or 5900X for AMD. 32GB so you don't have to mess with ram for a while. 2TB storage causes games take stupid amount of storage now.

 

~250 euros left. You can add more storage if you want, more ram or better gpu (maybe?).

This build is slightly faster than previous, but probably not by much.

I know you'll probably want a 3070 or 3070Ti, but I went for a 3060Ti. I think it will give you more than enough performance, even at 1440p.
