Hey guys! Building my gaming pc for my birthday tomorrow and need to order the parts. Here's all the stuff i have:
Cpu:AMD RYZEN 5 3600X 6-Core 3.8 GHz
Motherboard: MSI Arsenal Gaming AMD Ryzen 2ND and 3rd Gen AM4 M.2 USB 3 DDR4 DVI HDMI Crossfire ATX Motherboard (B450 TOMAHAWK Max)
RAM:OLOy WarHawk RGB DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) 16GB (2 x 8GB)
SSD: Team Group GX1 2.5" 960GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Hard-drive: Seagate BarraCuda ST2000DM008 2TB 7200 RPM 256MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
PSU: Thermaltake SMART 600W ATX 12V V2.3/EPS 12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Case: Antec NX Series NX400, Mid-Tower ATX Gaming Case, Tempered Glass Side Panel & LED Strip Front Panel, 360 mm Radiator Support, 1 x 120 mm ARGB Fan Included

Yes I know theres no GPU yet. I am still debating between these:
  1. MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB GDRR6 256-bit HDMI/DP NVLink Torx Fan Turing Architecture Overclocked G-SYNC Graphics Card (RTX 2070 Super Ventus GP OC) ($510)
or
2. PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 Graphics Card ($430). (I think has had some bad reviews on the drivers)

I definitely can afford the 2070 super, but just wondering which one would go best with the rest of my parts and which one is better. To whoever is reading this. I would like you to give me your honest opinions on how my build parts are, what I should change, and which GPU i should buy. Again, I do not care about the price of the GPU, just which one is better with my specific build. Thank you!

With that build, i would get the corsair cx650m psu because that thermaltake psu isnt that good. Honestly if i were you, i would go with the rx5700xt. Yes there are drivers issue but it's nothing major more like a hassle. You just have to do your research and find the best drivers. Amd gpus tend to age better than nvidia gpus if that matters to you. If you do not want to deal with those, the rtx 2070 super is perfectly fine as well and it is more powerful than the rx5700xt.
