Well..yes and no. PC building in essence are still the same.
Only difference are of course much better specs for today hardware and the new type of slots available to your hardware.
Here are some of the latest tech to get you started.
Since you are going amd, look for Threadripper cpu :-) if you have budget.
Then RTX gpu, nvme hdd. DDR4 ram. That's about it
(Of course if you are getting top end hardwarde make sure to get a top end PSU too like seasonic or EVGA as example)
Agreed with the PSU point. Never ever buy cheap PSU. It can take down all your component if it goes down. Seasonic, Corsair, evga, super flower are some of the good choices. Got lots I didn't list so see online reviews to get an idea.
Also RGB is not equal to extra performance. You're gonna see a lot of parts getting RGBfied and very expensive. Keep that in mind.
