Bad PSU. Would suggest Corsair RM650 instead. Case is fine, my friend has one, not a big fan of it, try Lancool 215 or CM NR600 if you want an alternative. Otherwise good build. I do not understand your storage configuration though. What's the point. Just get a 1TB Blue NVMe. And what are you paying for the CPU and gpu? Wouldn't it make more sense for 5600X+3070 now?

Your build would work.
I have some thoughts:

1. Ryzen depends on fast ram for best performance.
look at a compatible 3600 speed kit.
2. Why have two devices?
Buy a single 1tb n.2 pcie ssd.
Samsung 970 is a top performer, but on a budget look at a 1tb intel 665P

3. A quality psu is a good long term investment. 750w is a good size.
But I think your pick is tier 4 on this list:
I like the seasonic focus units with a 7 or 10 year warranty.

I standby what he says. But I do believe 650W is enough. And if there is one place you wanna save money on this, I'd say 3200mhz over 3600mhz should be the place. (unless you're willing to wait for something like an RTX 3060)
 
650w would be enough.
But, that particular 2070 super is a factory overclocked version that needs more power than the standard 8 pin.
There is no problem in overprovisioning a psu since it will only consume the power required of it regardless of the max capability.

That is true. It does require 8+6. And yes its a worthwhile investment for upgrade headroom as well. My same version 2070S works fine on, 650 tho :p. If OP wants to cut costs, I'd say go 650 and 3600mhz over 750+3200

500GB SSd for Games+Os and 2nd ssd for recording gameplay. Its mainly for content creation so 8 cores will help more than 6 and 2070s cuz i'll be mostly playing at 1080p so i think 3070 is kinda overkill. Right!

2 seperate ssd's one for games and os other for dedicated recording and rendering. However i will reconsider psu thanks for the reply.

how about Corsair CX650, RM one's are kinda expensive?

That's not bad either, not the best, but certainly better than the one you chose. But do not go for the CX650M. that one is bad, the one without th M is better. There's a TX650M too. See if you can get that it's better than the RM in overall quality and $20 cheaper where I live

"overkill" again depends on price. I like to keep everything ultra and turn on AA. My 2070s only pumps 90fps in GTA because of this. If you're paying $500 for both, I'd say go for 3070. If you're paying $400, then 2070S is better. Check out benchmarks to help for the 8 cores thing. I'm not sure if the 5600X is worse at multi core, I'd suggest you check linus' channel he probably has that there. Or Gamers Nexus
