Whether it is worth it or not depends on what you currently have. If you have something that performs around this range, then its definitely not worth it. Otherwise it is.
Typically, a 500gb NVME drive is meant to be used as a hot drive where you make a 100gb-150gb partition for your OS and the rest for your frequently used data. That usually lasts for a couple of months at which juncture you buy a bigger drive(HDD/SSD) when you have more money and replenish your storage.
also will it bottleneck

I currently have a barracuda st1000dm010 1tb HDD do you know if it will bottleneck? Also please recommend which fans I should buy
HDDs don't "bottleneck" in the sense that you'll get worse FPS. They just lengthen the loading time of games. After it's loaded, you'll see no difference whatsoever. Also it's fine to use 3Gbps (300MBps) SATA ports since almost all HDD top out at around 200MBps anyway

No there is no bottleneck in the build. If you can spend more, the 5700x is a better card and definitely worth it.
sorry i kept replying.. I didnt see there was 2 pages, I have 2 last questions, 1 what fans should I buy and do I have to buy liquid cooling? 2 should I just click the green buy button on pc part picker page? Thanks for help! :)

Fans will depend on the case that you buy. Since your original build didnt have a case, everybody here including me presumes that you already have one. Unless you intend to gain high overclocks, the stock cooler is sufficient for stick operation or mild overclocks.
The buy link will take you to corresponding vendor pages where you can complete the purchase.
