First PC, help appreciated

Hello!
I dont have the slightest clue when it comes to PCs, but have been following the new AMD Ryzen and their new GPUs and have patiently waited for them to release, like i said im not very clued up on builds (hence why ive chosen air cooling) so all help is appreciated, budget is around £1800 with a monitor but can stretch abit more if needed, will be using it as a gaming machine and hopefully run games at max settings also hoping it will last afew years before upgrading. Thanks!

The below could be an option. Better case, faster RAM(AMD performs better with faster RAM), better SSD and faster wifi card(if not needed remove and save £35). I believe Nvidia are supposed to release their RTX refresh in the next few days. The new 2070 super should be faster than the 5700 XT for a similar price. The AMD stock coolers have been OK in the past. If planning to overclock you could justify the purchase of an aftermarket one otherwise stock should be plenty. I also upped the warranty to silver for an extra £5.

It varies a bit from game to game of course, but the RTX 2060 Super is much better value for very similar performance to the 5700 XT out of the box. And arguably has a much better bundle of games.

3200MHz RAM is not available in the configurator, so go with that if you can.
