It makes more sense to put an SSD in first than later.

I was planning to put in a m.2 ssd later so there wont be much hassle. Anyways I have changed the whole build and now I can include a ssd in my budget. Thanks anyways :)

I am going to build a new pc in the near future and this is going to be my first PC build. With this PC I am going to experience proper high fps gaming for the first time ever ( so yeah... really excited). I just want some advice/comments on my parts selection:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

GPU: ZOTAC GAMING GEFORCE RTX 2070 MINI 8GB GDDR6

MOBO: ASROCK B450 Steel Legend

RAM: G.SKILL 16GB (8X2) DDR4 3200MHZ RIPJAWS

PSU: Cooler Master MWE 650 Bronze v2 80 plus certified

CPU Cooler: Deepcool Gammax 400 v2

STORAGE: Seagate Barracuda 2 tb (hdd) 

Cabinet: MSI MAGFORCE 100M

PS: I am from India and not every part is easily accessible for me. Thus the above selection. THANK YOU.

Get rid of the CPU cooler, you dont need it. Get an Aftermarket 5700xt (a 5700xt with a better cooler on it), Change the Motherboard to the MSI b450 Tomahwak MAX, make the Memory 3600mhz instead of 3200 mhz (optinal), and for the Cabinet (case???) get a Phateks P300a and select a  fan to mount in the back (backwards) to server as exaust. and if you listen to nothing else I say:

 

PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASE PLEASE  GET A SSD. Any ssd, even If  it's just 128gb or 256gb. I recomend a crucial p2 512gb nvme drive being honest. If you follow all my advice, this build will be a bit more expensive, but well worth it. 

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

Are you sure that the stock cooler will be enough ? It gets really hot around here during the summers (40 degree Celcius). And I shall switch over to a MSI board (tomahawk / mortar). I cant seem to find the case you recommended and I have selected the mentioned case because of the air flow ( 2x120 mm fans in the front and 1x120mm fan in the rear). And ok I shall try to squeeze in a ssd but the 5700xt is off limits ( really out of my budget).

Thanks a lot :)

see if you can find a b450m mortar max. it's kind of the best b450 board.

Yes, I will change my selected motherboard to a MSI b450m Mortar max or Tomahawk. Thanks mate .

The 5700xt should be about the same price as the 2070, just an FYI

Initially I had a SSD in my selection. But currently there is a huge price hike so I had to remove it. Although I will put a 240gb ssd as boot drive in the future ( probably after 2-3 months post build).

I checked. The zotac mini costs less than the 5700xt. 

Well, is the Zotac mini not very efficient at cooling?

Well, not nearly. Theres a reason why Its the cheapest 2070. If you go 5700xt, remember not to get the stock blower, get at least a 2 fan, and perferablly a 3 fan

I see. Then I think I'll have to go with a better cooled rtx 2060. #sedlyf ;(

No wait, go with a better cooled 5700, non-xt, or at least a 2060S (5700 is still better)

Okay then I shall keep digging a bit more and go for a 5700 non-xt or 2060s ( whichever fits in my budget better). I shall keep in mind to go for a dual fan (better cooled ) version.
