What will you be using the PC for?
And what monitor(s) (resolution / refresh rate) will you be using with it?

Regardless of use case, I would definitely recommend faster RAM with a Ryzen, at least 3200MHz.
The 5700G has integrated graphics, which you probably don't need if you're getting a separate GPU like the 3060.

I'm not sure that case would have much airflow even with the extra case fans, but if you need one less than 196mm wide there might not be many options.

I'm not sure there are any good cases narrower than 200mm. Sadly the 3601 is definitely not a good case because it offers pretty much no airflow at all.. The nearest I can find is the Phanteks P300A Mesh, which is 200mm; if that was possible then you could do the "send in my own case option":


If you were going for an iGPU based office PC, the 3601 might be OK. But for a gaming PC with a modern graphics card, it's just not enough in my view.
