i wouldn't trust the psu get something better i recommend EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3
the gpu Suggested PSU is 600 W - 650 W the gpus s TDP is 250 W lets say it peaks at 300W
the cpu i9 9900kf lets say it peaks at 200W that is about combined 600w just for the cpu and gpu at peak okay . so do yourself a favor and pick a 750w good quality unit like the evga supernova 750 g3 never skimp on psu it supplies electricity to your expensive components.

I really appreciate the input guys! I was afraid I'd get that response on the power supply but I was being hopeful that I could save a bit of money because I already have that power supply ha.

rather than teh 9900, I'd suggest a Ryzen 3700X. Its competitive in FPS with teh 9900 for a lot less money (enough to consider a GPU upgrade)

How about this? Also if a video card is what you would upgrade, any suggestions? Does this build seem like one that could be reliable for several years?

you want faster ram, (3733 cas 17 ideally), 16 GB is enough, and don't really need the aftermarket cooler. my tweaks:

I went to 2 16 GB packs of 3733 memory - you could drop to just one pack of this, a less expensive, but still high quality SSD, a Mechanical keyboard (using Cherry MX Red knockoffs), a less expensive case and fans, and no aftermarket cpu heat sink (the one included is good enough for a light overclock)
