A 6600XT or RTX 3060. You can see a head to head in the review below.

 

https://www.techspot.com/review/2460-geforce-rtx-3060-vs-radeon-6600-xt/

I think I’m gonna go with the 6600xt cos the 3060 is a bit to expensive. Thanks for the help

Budget (including currency): $1500-1600

Country: Australia

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: all games, unity, blender, adobe stuff.

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 need to bring the price down by $100 or so. I was wondering if anyone could recommend what I could save on or give some feedback on the parts. I was maybe thinking the motherboard was a bit pricey but I don't know another option.

List: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/MKn6Q6

 

Also I already have a case (the 4000D airflow)

In fact most of your list wasn't optimal at all (overkill board and PSU as well), here comes a new with a much better GPU for  A$1,420 ...

Upgraded rams and psu while cost cutting everything else

 

If you want to run stock then get any 3200 cl16/3600 cl18 rams, anything else is demolished by overclocked ballistix. Chose ballistix since its pretty cheap for its oc capabilites, upwards of 4600+ cl18 ~1.6v kind of oc but if you would rather not run a fan over the rams or do some tweaking to the timings then 4000 cl16 ~1.5v lazy oc is also attainable for most ballistix

 

Psu is now much cheaper and 850w so itll be decently futureproof

 

Theres now ~700$ budget for the gpu so maybe a 67x0(xt) or 3070(ti)

Uhhh aorus pro is a good board but at this pricerange you wanna focus more on the gpu since cheaper boards like the b550 tomahawk offer decent enough i/o, also i dont think a 650w and 16gb 3600 cl16 (the even more garbage 16-19-19 stuff) for ripoff prices is optimal either so i suggest searching for better deals, there is the sort by lowest feature on pcpp to see better deals which admittedly i didnt know for a few months even existed xD

ok I tweaked the parts a bit. Is this any good:

https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/KGRKqm

Also any recommendations on gpu's for this.

Ram is still complete garbage, again ballistix will completely obliterate that sad excuse of an overpriced ram, 16-19-19 is prob gonna be some average bin djr that prob wont do much more than 4400 at loose cl19 rimings while ballistix does higher at tighter timings, djr is a great cheap ic but if its overpriced it becomes garbage

 

Cooler is stupidly overpriced, se 224 xt will suffice

Alright I changed the ram. I have about AU$600 left for the gpu, is their anything better than the 2060 for that price?

The revised list he posted has a better psu. The Kolink is 'ok' but it has a crappy warranty of 3 years. Also 500W doesn't leave much headroom for future upgrades

Winter is Coming.
