3 Years ago, I sadly had to sell gaming desktop rig and downgrade to laptop (performs better than my old rig did) to make room for my son We are selling our house and moving to a bigger house later this year and after a long talks with my partner. She has granted me permission to get a new desktop when we move. 

I have some idea what my new rig will have in it, but would like to hear your input and experience. 

My budget is 5K to get a monitor and the rig itself. What would you get?

5k is a lot of money, you can build a pretty decent rig with a budget like that!

What do you intend to do with the system? Overclocking, 24/7 usage, big storage or just some casual gaming and browsing?

If you go for water cooling you can spend a big part of the budget on something that will only increase the performance by a little, so if that's not your intention I'd go with a good airflow case with aircooled hardware. 
The CPU depends on what you'll use it for, but I'm really happy with the latest AMD chips. A 5900x with a good GPU and some fast ram on a mid range motherboard will keep you satisfied for a long time. 
You have some time left to decide, so you'll have a good chance to compare the current/coming 30 series to the 6000 series. That choice also depends on what you'll use it for, but if you plan to fold more with the system I would personally go for an nvidia card. 

With a fast m.2 ssd a few big ssd's, a good PSU and an AIO or air cooler you'll have enough money left to buy a nice monitor.
