Going for a balanced future proof red/black with white fans for illumination and RGB when I want build, mainly for CSGO, blackout, maybe WoW and other AAA titles aiming for single maybe dual screen 1080p 144hz locked freesync gaming...

The parts I picked for the red and black theme I was going for and hopefully are all more than compatible...I went with the 2600x for maximum bang for your buck although I wouldn’t mind the RGB cooler of the 2700x (not worth the 120$ for .1 ghz and RGB to me), X470 Mobo for esthetics and future proofing, G skillz Bdie ram (right?), and the Vega 56 red dragon for high FPS 1080p gaming, 970 evo for snappy load and boot times, and the Seasonic for reliable power and plenty of extra juice at 750w....

Just looking for feedback or possible problems or incompatibility anyone can see and all around tips given that this will be my first build and first custom pc in general

Thanks in advance!

There is no guarantee on the RAM. The Ripjaw V may or may not have the B-Die. It's luck of the draw. Only G.Skill Flare X and Fortis are made specifically for Ryzen.

If you want something better guaranteed for Ryzen. Go with a first party RAM manufacturer. That way you don't have to worry about component variation. Crucial Ballistix Sport LT is Ryzen Ready and a lot cheaper.

Use the money save towards a CPU cooler for your theme. Please note that the Scythe is much better. Especially for OC. There are better bang for your buck coolers. But I was keeping your theme in mind.

Ther is a lot more then just a speed difference and a different cooler between the 2600x and 2700x. The 2700x has 2 more cores higher turbo, and higher tdp.
Even there is no guarantees of full support, Ryzen 2nd generation is a lot better than 1st generation with ram compatability.
I have a 3200mhz kit of g.skill ripjaws working fine at rated speed with a first generation ryzen 3 cpu, but your luck may very.

Thinking I’ll go with that unless there is confirmation that the ballistix is able to hit 3200 and any better RGB coolers? Don’t think the spire wraith would get me to almost 4ghz?

Crucial says it is Ryzen compatible on their website. Crucial manufactures RAM. They aren't some third party like GSkill. I've never known Crucial not to meet their claims of compatibility. Crucial and Kingston are the only brands I'd ever consider for a build.
 
Well, ram is ram. Most modules will have Samsung or micron (crucial) memory chips, so most 3rd party brands might be just as good as crucial ram kits since they might have the same DRAM chips. G.Skill is reputable and has lifetime warranties on all of their DRAM modules. I would also trust Samsung as a 1st party since they make dram modules, dram chips, and flash memory; just like Micron does under their brand Crucial.
