CPU - Intel Core i5-9600K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor
CPU Cooler - Thermaltake UX200 ARGB 43.34 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard - Asus TUF Z390-PRO GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Memory - ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D60G 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

Video Card - Gigabyte Radeon RX 5500 XT 8 GB OC Video Card
Case - Thermaltake Level 20 MT ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply - Cooler Master Elite V3 600 W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply

1. Are all the parts compatible with each other?
2. Will this build work with Catalina?
3. How will the WiFi/Bluetooth work? Will I need a PCIE WiFi card and a Bluetooth USB dongle?
4. Since I am hoping to duel boot Windows 10, should I look at 2 x 250GB SSD's? Or would I be able to partion the 500GB SSD?
5. Any suggestions?

(1) Yes, they should be.
(2) Yes, the build should be compatible with MacOS Catalina.
(3) No, WiFi / Bluetooth included with motherboards won't work with MacOS and you need a compatible card if you want those functions.
(4) The general recommendation is to use separate drives for dual booting so you should get 2 separate SSDs.
