Possible build advice?

So the gist of it is I have an asrock ab350M pro 4 and a ryzen 2200g already in my closet brand new, my old rig after 10 years of faithful service completely died. So I'm looking for advice on what I could possibly upgrade to in a budget of about $300 USD, I would need a case, ram, video card, ssd, and a psu. I'll link a part picker of what I thought would be decent, thanks to anyone who takes the time to contribute!

Get memory with a higher frequency. 3000MHz or higher.
Get a better quality power supply. That Seasonic S12ii unit is almost a decade old now.

Reuse the case from your 'dead' computer to have enough money in the budget for a decent PSU and memory that won't kill the performance of Ryzen CPUs.

 

 

CPU: Intel i7 6700k  | Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170x Gaming 5 | RAM: 2x16GB 3000MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX | GPU: Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080ti | PSU: Corsair RM750x (2018) | Case: BeQuiet SilentBase 800 | Cooler: Arctic Freezer 34 eSports | SSD: Samsung 970 Evo 500GB + Samsung 840 500GB + Crucial MX500 2TB | Monitor: Acer Predator XB271HU + Samsung BX2450

The case wouldn't be reusable comes from an old hp pre-built has no side panel I'm surprised it survived as long as it did being honest.

120gb is a little slim for Windows. Can the budget handle more storage?

The hdd still works I believe haven't fully tested it but I'd be able to readjust at a later date this will be purely for gaming mainly league and siege so it's not too much of a big deal right now.
