I'm building my first pc and I need some feedback.

https://newegg.io/a49b7ec

I'm open to any feedback about what I can change while keeping it at the same price point.
btw I added 3 sickleflow, 2 for the top, and 1 at the rear. There are 3 included at the front. Is that a good Idea or should I swap them out?
 
This is the system below. It looks ok apart from that horrible PSU. Replaced it with the minimum model I would recommend in the Corsair series and changed the RAM.

I don't like that price on the RTX 2060 tho but GPU's are just crazy to buy right now.

Honestly, it's a really awful time for a new build. A little bit of patience and you can get a huge upgrade for around the same money. 3060 Ti drops are lasting a good bit longer already and that's basically a 2080 Super level of performance.

Nemesia's recommendation is good. A CV is fine for a basic PC, but not a $1000 PC. CX is the minimum.
