Looks fine but have you compared prices with other parts on the CPU? Some regions have crazy high prizes for 6-core Ryzen right now...

Get a Ryzen 5 3600 rather than the 3600x if you want to overclock, you can overclock that to match the 3600x. The cooling is sufficient if you want to run stock, not overclock though. I suggest getting a better cooler like Scythe Fuma or better for overclocking. Motherboard is pretty great for it's price, don't recommend anything else, however make sure you flash the BIOS first. Ram is fine, storage seems great, however the GPU is too underpowered considering your CPU is really good, able to play 1080p without bottlenecking too hard with a RTX 3070. Get a RTX 2060 Super or better, I recommend reducing your CPU budget and get a Ryzen 5 2600 if $1000 is your maximum budget. Case looks great and functions very well at its price point, however I cannot say the same with the PSU's. The 450 BR is a great budget option however since you have a $1000 budget, get a better PSU say the Corsair CX gray series (they're the best performing cheap PSU), or EVGA Supernova series. The PSU is actually really important considering if you do get a RTX 2060 Super, it will need at least a 500W PSU to work at its maximum and a bad PSU can make your PC black screen or blue screen because it both cannot handle the GPU, and the DC-DC is bad or wattage is not as specified on the box. Popular PSU brands such as Seasonic, Corsair, EVGA and Cooler Master have models that can be used effectively, just not their lower-end ones.

Alright I have basic understanding of computers and don’t really know too much about some things you have said but I will try and see if I can get a better cooler PSU and graphics card. Thanks man!

No problem! Make sure you get your PSU from a trusted manufacturer. Here are some pretty useful links:
