I am upgrading my pc, the parts i am considering buying are

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660
MoBo: ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

Are there any changes i could make performance wise, or anything that clashes.
My budget is under 600, and i already have a power supply, hard drive and OS

The R5 3600 is the same price, gets slightly higher fps, but the lows are slightly higher, probably due to having double the available cache. It also allows for better access to higher ram, the sweetspot being 3733MHz, and won't tax the motherboard the way the 2700x can.

Just an option.

There's also a couple of 1660ti like the Gigabyte OC that run around the same price as the better 1660 models.

And yes, an SSD will vastly improve your gaming and windows experience.
