It's my first build. Up until about a week, I didn't know anything about which parts to pick, what type of cpu goes with which motherboard type etc. etc.
I've been doing a lot of research and I've compiled my build down below. (I haven't added a cpu cooler, since the Ryzen 7 3700x comes with the Wraith Prism.)
Here it is:

1. Will all these parts fit together nicely?
2. What kind of thermals can I expect since the RTX 2060 is so close to the psu shroud cover. Although the plate is perforated and the SFX psu leaves more room for the gpu to breathe, but I'm still not sure.
3. If the thermals will be okay, should I go with the AMD Radeon RX 5700? It's stronger but the price is very close to the RTX 2060. Though it does have a blower style cooler, so It might be less efficient which is something I definitely don't need when there are already thermal concerns. What do you think?
4. Is the psu overkill or fine?
5. Maybe going with the NZTX 400 would be a better option to help thermals, any thoughts on this?
Other important stuff:
- I'd gladly hear if you guys think I should go with other parts, maybe a different (cheaper) motherboard? I do like the fact it has wifi and bluetooth, so I don't have get dongles
- Going the Intel cpu route will definitely cost me more + will need a new motherboard and cooler recommendation. So I think I'll stick to the chosen cpu.
- I've added 2x 140mm fans for the front and 2x 120mm for the rear and top to help with air circulation.
(I live in The Netherlands, so the prices may differ from what you're used to (we pay more usually :p), but I'm aiming to spend around €1300 for the computer alone.)
