Thanks for the breakdown. Do you think i could rearrange anything to spring for a 2070 within a similar budget without sacrificing/endangering performance?

You would be happier with this machine. Its a hair more money but there more features // options for storage etc take a look. The video card will be enough for most games but might have trouble on VR stuff and some of the HFR stuff like FPS.
