Euros covers a massive range of countries. Could you narrow it down for us. Are you in Ireland, or Germany? Different components will make more or less sense depending on where you live and are buying from.

What monitor(s) are you using with this system?

Will the system be used for anything other than gaming?

Any preferences/requirements? Brands, RGB, I/O, etc?

When will you be building the system?

Apologies I'm in Ireland
Was just think of picking a curved monitor nothing in mind at the minute
It would be used for light browsing on the web
No preferences really
System would be built soon as

So I don't actually know of any decent shops in Ireland right now. Your best bet might actually be buying from mainland UK and getting it shipped. Probably waiting a little for delivery in that case though, so if you have any preferred shops in Ireland, let me know and I can give you a parts list from those if you wish.

Anyway, 1500 euros is about £1350 so for that budget with a monitor, I'd look at this;
PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor (£152.94 @ Amazon UK)
Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard (£119.40 @ Alza)
Memory: Patriot Viper Steel 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL17 Memory (£77.25 @ CCL Computers)
Storage: Sabrent Rocket Q 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (£109.99 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB Red Dragon Video Card (£349.99 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital ATX Mid Tower Case (£80.26 @ Ebuyer)
Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (£88.99 @ Amazon UK)
Monitor: AOC Q27G2U/BK 27.0" 2560x1440 144 Hz Monitor (£276.27 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £1255.09

Add 50 quid for an RTX 2070 if you want RTX/DLSS support but lose 5-10% performance over the 5700XT.
Add 150 quid for an RTX 2070 Super if you want RTX/DLSS support and an extra 5-10% performance over the 5700XT.

RTX 2070, RX 5700XT, and RTX 2070 Super are all great cards for 1440p144Hz. 2070 is the minimum I'd want though. Im currently running a 2070 Super @ 1440p144Hz.

The monitor I included is not curved, but there is a curved variant for a few more pennies if you really want curved.
Id just buy a good monitor, whether its curved or not, but there are plenty of perfectly good curved monitors if thats what you want.
