Default Brand new build, halp

Hey guys,
I'm a little out of sync with hardware nowadays, but I was helped here like 7 years ago, and that PC is only just showing true signs of his age, so time for a new one.

I just bought a 1TB 860 EVO SSD, so i'll stick that in, but I have it already so please don't recommend replacing it, just pretend i made the right choice. I'm assuming i'll be upgrading, but my current PC has a pretty solid 600w Corsair PSU. It's like 8 years old at this point, but would it be a waste to replace it? I've also got one of those tiny wifi cards that i'd like to put in this, but i'm assuming those pci slots are standard.
So, this is what i'm thinking. I have no idea what the current CPU/GPU climate is, so please tell me what you'd change. Or if i've forgotten anything, that'd be embarrassing:

CPU: Intel CORE I5-9600K - £220
GPU: RX 5700 - £280
RAM: Corsair 16GB 3200mhz - £72
PSU: Corsair VS650 - £50
CASE: Corsair Carbide 100R - £45

I'll thoroughly appreciate any help,
Cheers lads!
I have too many rubber ducks. Send help.
