So I'm a complete beginner in the field of PC building and wanted some help in getting the correct parts. Here's what I have come up with so far:

CPU: AMD RYZEN 5 3600x 3RD GENERATION DESKTOP PROCESSOR

RAM: G.SKILL 16GB (8GBX2) DDR4 – 3000 MHZ TRIDENT Z RGB SERIES RAM

GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 Super Windforce 8G Graphics Card, 3X WINDFORCE Fans

SSD: Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5-inch 7mm Internal SSD (CT500MX500SSD1)

PSU: Antec EARTHWATTS GOLD PRO 750W

Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX MOTHERBOARD

Case: Fractal Design Meshify C White-TG Tempered Glass Case

HDD: Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200 RPM

I will be playing mostly singleplayer AAA's, though I might venture into nultiplayer territory eventually. I want the build to be relatively future proof and want minimal upgrades for atleast the next 5 years. I do not care about rgb lights right now, so if you could help me find a mobo that had minimal lights and was cheaper than my current one that would be nice. Also, I do not have any idea about the cooling units. That's about it. Thanks for your time

I've had my PC for about 4-5 years now and it's been running great, but I think it's time I should upgrade my processor. It's been reliable for quite a while but I feel like I'm being held back for the games I'm trying to play. Currently, I have the Ryzen 3 1200 and my budget is $200-$300. I don't have any plans to upgrade my GPU yet.

Currently, I have:

CPU: Ryzen 3 1200
GPU: Radeon RX 570
RAM: 16GB DDR4 2400mhz

I was thinking on upgrading to either a Ryzen 5 1600 or 2600.

Anything helps, thank you! distance between cities

I've been a loyal fan of Apevia's cases and have been a customer of them for eight years. My second case from them was built for me almost two years ago... However, I'm more of a fan of Intel Core processors (I have an i5-9400). My old Apevia case had an i5-3470, so that was a big improvement.

Again, I do recommend at least 16 GB memory (like mine has), and at least 2 TB hard drive (mine has a 3 TB hard drive, however I use it very slowly).

All I can say is, take your time and estimate how long the build would last before you actually start.
