Here is what I would go with. If you are sold on the other case then you’ll have to stretch the budget just a bit.
CPU looks great.
Motherboard is pretty important, upgraded you to a better one.
RAM is important with Ryzen. Got you DDR 3600 CAS 16 which will improve performance.
Intel 660p great nvme drive 1tb instead of 500GB.
Changed case for budget and it is a very solid case.
PSU you had is not good it’s a cheaply made unit with EVGA stamp on it. TXM gold is the cheapest quality 650 watt I would use. If you are sold on EVGA get the G3, not a G1 or G5.

If you prioritize performance over aesthetics this is what you get.

I'm assuming it would be in my favor to also upgrade my monitor to 144hz?
