I want some feedback to see whether there's some things i could switch out and other (or better) parts I could put in instead. I just want to be able to play mainstream games (Apex, Overwatch, Fortnite) smoothly.

What framerate and resolution?

for frames at least 120 or more if I can. As for resolution probably 1080p since I have a AW2518Hf..

Get an RX 5700 and a more efficient PSU like the TXM gold

I'd spend a bit more and bump the graphics card up to an RTX 2060 8GB. That will make a difference in performance for games.

Thanks man! I'll look into it! Any other recommendations?

You might need to bump the PSU up to ~650w with a bigger graphics card (check the power requirements of the card you get before getting the PSU). You will need a good card to run at 120. Check for game tests with differing cards at various resolutions and frame rates (many You Tube videos on that). Good Luck!
