I am building my first pc soon, but I need help with the parts. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. So far I have:

ryzen 7 2700x (I will be using the wraith prism included)
MSI gtx 1070 armor
gigabyte x470 aorus ultra gaming
corsair vengeance (16gb @ 2666mhz)
crucial bx500 240gb ssd
wd blue 1tb @ 5400
versa n26 w 600w psu

I really don't want to get anything wrong, as that would be $1000 down the drain. I also am buying the GPU used to save some money. Please let me know if this is a bad idea, and if there is anything I could save money on by getting used.

If it is for gaming this will perform lot better than GTX1070 or GTX1660Ti build.

This is a good idea, except I would like the higher specs of the 2700x, and a 1070 or 1660 ti is good enough for the games I will be playing. I will probably be doing some kind of video editing at some point too. Otherwise, your suggestion is a very good idea. I will probably end up chopping and changing the components from different build suggestions for my final design.
 
Might be able to simply scrap the small 1 TB WD Blue, and too-small 240 GB SSD, and simply get a 1 TB SSD on sale....(Intel has some 1 TB 760P SSD or something for $105 or so now???)

Add a 4 TB HGST drive later for bulk storage....

If you can push budget little up then you can get this no compromise build. HDD can be added at any point of time as it is low cost investment. There is a decent and noticeable difference in performance when going for RTX2070 over GTX1070 or GTX1660Ti.

1tb will be enough for my storage needs. My laptop has a 1tb HDD. I have had it for a bit over a year now and I have only put 3 GB of stuff on it. My laptop also has a 160 GB ssd, of which I have only used 60.9 GB (including windows). I also will need to budget in a monitor somewhere, as I could use my TV, but I would have to switch between inputs with my Xbox, TV and then also my PC. I also plug in my laptop when I want a "second" display.
