Alright, I think the case is going to be alright for him because I don't think he is going to be playing too hard games that will cause temps to go up.Would rather go with a Samsung SSD or EVO m.2 at 500gb, roughly $100, and a WD Blue storage 2tb for $60. Works always for me. The case is also good, but airflow is difficult. I myself own a P400s and it's very similar and restrictive in terms of airflow and upgrade potential. You can find better cases.
Let's see, first of all are you planning to buy all this outright at once or over a period of time? Are you planning to overclock? What resolution are you planning to game on? Most importantly...what style of build you going after? White/Black, pure white, not caring? It's roughly $2,000 so I would assume you have a style in mind to show off. Here's my list of what I think:
CPU/Cooler: Solid choice's. Remember you get the stealth cooler along with it so depends highly if you want to overclock it and by how much to justify another CPU cooler. A third party cooler is always however nice for lower temps depending on what you get. I also found the CPU cheaper on Amazon for $194, that should save you a chunk.
MOBO: I would personally get a white or semi white MOBO depending what your after. This board I'm not very familiar with so unsure how it will perform and reviews seem to be mixed. Looking up boards for you I would go with either of these boards unless your after more features. One white one black.
PS: Unsure how ryzan CPU's upgrade/downgrade so I would check to make sure these mobo's suit all your needs and are compatible with your chip set. From what I found it is, but double checking before confirming is a must.
RAM: Ram has come down a long way from the horrible cryto hell so any ram you choose is a solid pick so long as it's fast. We all know Ryzan CPU's love fast ram. I see no issues with your ram, but if you want white I found it on amazon for $80, corsair vengeance. Anything RGB and your paying roughly $150.
Storage: This is a massive "depends on your preference" sort of thing. I personally have a WD Blue 2tb you can buy right now for $60 and 2 m.2 SSD's attach to my motherboard at $100 a pop. One Evo 970, the other WD black gaming edition. If you decide to buy the CPU on amazon and no cooler your saving enough to get both storage systems. Typically my gaming system fills both 500gb m.2's fast, which is why one m.2 at 500gb and one 2tb HDD is a solid choice for most people. Or at the very least have another storage option planned for the future if your serious about gaming, which this list assumes you will be. My storage links to look at, but up to your preference again.
Video Card/Power Supply: Heard this card is a solid choice and so is the power supply. Shocked you have this placed for over $750 considering where I am it's much cheaper, roughly around $450. I would check for prices on the AMD Radeon RX 5700 (8gb) which has prices under $350 here, but is missing ray tracing. It really depends on what your willing to spend, but for that much money I would make sure it has all the bells and wistles I can get my hands on for a few solid years. Below is a SPR RX 5700 XT review and suggestions.
Case: This case has gotten good reviews for a reason, I would stick with it. However prices vary, it can be on sale for less than $100 on holidays.
Fans: It's your opinion, but I would opt for LL fans over these as they are quiet and amazing looking. Same price where I am, but it does vary and goes on sale constantly, 2 pack or 3 pack 120 fans.
WNA: Your choice, I personally never found the need for one of these. I use a simple USB Wi-Fi adapter for controllers or a WIFI connection.
Hope I covered everything. I only know so much about the AMD side of things so take everything here with your own prices, experiences and a grain of salt. So far the system would be to me a white/black/red build based on all this. Add an extra $30 and even could get some fancy extension cables colored red to help accent. If that's your sorta thing.
This should be better...
I would choose a board with embedded wifi module like the one in my build. The embedded headers are usually better quality than the aft ones. And the whole thing is cheaper together.I would do something like this:

But you did that at the cost of a quality PSU. Those Seasonic PSU's are terrible, plus the one the op added was his preference so i kept it in the build. Just a suggestion. Sorry if I got a little too spicy.I would choose a board with embedded wifi module like the one in my build. The embedded headers are usually better quality than the aft ones.

Just a suggestion.
When the S12II was released, it was one of the best (in my opinion, the best) out there in its budget range. Nowadays, it still is.But you did that at the cost of a quality PSU.

Maybe you need to revisit your knowledge. Here is the 520w review...But you did that at the cost of a quality PSU. Those Seasonic PSU's are terrible, plus the one the op added was his preference so i kept it in the build. Just a suggestion. Sorry if I got a little too spicy.
I understand that, however, if you had my experiences could you in good faith recommend such a PSU?Even EVGA and Corsair has faulty units from time to time. Its not about a particular unit but the success or failure of the mass ratio of that model which counts. Happened to you doesnt mean it happens to everyone with that model. The mass ratio of that model is pretty successful and being so old that alone beats some newer units considered premium.
I have build so many budget machines with that unit and i never had any complaints or issues including one of mine.
You are correct. My personal experience dictates my opinion and my opinion is what I am giving. My opinion will only change from experience and since I will no longer enable myself to experience such a PSU again it won't change. Also, nobody has quantified their opinion of the failure rates or longevity beyond their own personal experience with the PSU in question either.Your personal experience doesnt represent the brand. Mass experience does.
There is also that thing called "independent review", which is basically the logical yardstick for every buyer. That usually quantifies or gives an esteemed estimation of those rates.You are correct. My personal experience dictates my opinion and my opinion is what I am giving. My opinion will only change from experience and since I will no longer enable myself to experience such a PSU again it won't change. Also, nobody has quantified their opinion of the failure rates or longevity beyond their own personal experience with the PSU in question either.
