Approximate Purchase Date: In a few weeks time.

Budget Range: 3000-4000 NZ$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Will be playing anything from new released AAA's to indies, sometimes at extended periods.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: https://www.computerlounge.co.nz/ As this is close to my home.

Location: New Zealand, Auckland

Parts Preferences: AMD CPU (and in extension the MB), i don't mind switching GPU brand if it doesn't cost too much.

Overclocking: Probably.

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 (maybe will upgrade)

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My old MB died and was left with DDR3 parts(5 Yo PC, built on a budget). Time for new PC. Because of this i already have peripherals, and Storage. But still getting more storage just in case.

Additional Comments:

What i'd like to know is :
  1. Will this build work?
  2. Are there any parts i could change out to get better performance for little cost ( i got about 500$ wiggle room)
I do not need any peripherals.

I had windows 7 home premium upgraded to windows 10, not sure if i need a new copy. I do also still have my old SSD with windows on it but not sure if the new MB will invalidate it.

GPU: ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB Graphics Card
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
MB: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE Gaming Motherboard
RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY Black 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory Kit

Case: Thermaltake View 71 RGB TG Tempered Glass Full-Tower Case
Cooling: Corsair Hydro Series H100i RGB Platinum SE Liquid CPU Cooler - White
PSu: Corsair AX850 850W Full Modular 80 Plus Titanium Power Supply

Storage: Intel 545s 1TB 2.5" 3D NAND SSD
ASUS PCE-AC58BT Dual-Band AC1200 + Bluetooth 5.0 PCI-E Wireless Adapter ( For Bluetooth controllers )

Thank you in advance for any advice.

1)Yes.

2)Yes.
-You definitely don't need an 850w psu unless you're going to SLI/XFire, therefore: https://www.computerlounge.co.nz/shop/components/power-supplies/desktop-psus/corsair-rm650x-v2-650w-fully-modular-80-plus-gold-power-supply
-Avoid the blower style RX 5700/XT. AMD put a cheap arse cooler on them. Regular 5700 is good enough for 1080p, so consider XT if you decide you want to move to 1440p. I'm going to link a regular 5700:

-Storage: Intel 660p 1TB M.2 is a better deal: https://www.computerlounge.co.nz/shop/components/storage/solid-state-drives/intel-660p-series-1tb-m2-nvme-ssd
