Hey Peter, the build looks solid, though I'd get a stronger GPU if at all possible. The RX560 is a bit on the low-end compared to the rest of the components, and you'll have a much better Gaming experience with a stronger GPU.

You could look into a Nvidia 1650 Super or 1660 Super for example. If you'd like to stay with AMD, the RX 590 or 5600XT are good picks.
