Build Advice

I need advice on my new build.Below are the specs but I wanna know if everything seems good and if the 2600x is a good pair for the 2070 or maybe if I should wait for 3rd gen Ryzen although the new 2600x with the Wraith Max seems pretty nice.Im not exactly new to PC's since I had a used one with a GTX 780 and a FX 8350 but my cat peed on it ?.But anyway im opened to suggestions since this is gonna be my first build and my first time building a PC too.My budget is 1300$(could push for 1400$ if needed)

Looks good, you may want to get a M.2 SSD for this price.

M.2 is a form factor, not an interface. M.2 SSDs can be both SATA or PCIe, so not all of them are fast. Don't give advice to people unless you know what you're talking about, thank you!

Get a larger SSD.

 

128GB is nothing these days just like 240GB.

 

By the time u install windows and do all the updates and so on and so forth then space soon gets used up.

 

My advice is a 500GB or above SSD.

Well ATM I'm waiting for the Ryzen 2600x with the Wraith Max to drop since that cooler is not bad at all from what I've heard.

I just need the SSD to boot from it so I guess I could get a 250gb.

The NH-U12s is better than the Wraith Max

The Wraith max will be fine unless hes planning overclocking.
