Few issues.

Hyper 212 is not enough for a stock 9700k, let alone one that you may overclock.
No reason to get one smaller SATA SSD and then an HDD at this budget. You can likely get a large 1 or 2TB NVME ssd at this price.
PSU is old and not great.
Case has very poor airflow and no room for a good aio.
