I want some opinions on this build and how I did for a first try, what are some suggestions from professionals or opinions on these components?

Hi everybody! I have a desktop from 2012 that is still kicking but to me it is showing its age. With Amazon Prime days, I decided it was time for a change. I ordered all my parts off of Amazon and PCPartPicker did help me out with picking components. I could have looked for deals on Newegg but decided to stick with Amazon. I'd like to know about anyone's opinions on my hardware and their experiences. At the time of typing this, the parts are still being shipped.

Here's my old system specs:
The PC is a customized Dell XPS 8500 from 2012.
CPU | Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4GHz with Hypder-Threading Technology
MB | Dell Inc. 0NW73C A01
RAM | Hynix 8GB(2x4GB Dual Channel) DDR3-1600
GPU | Gigabyte RX 560 Gaming OC 4GB
SSD | Samsung 860 EVO 1TB
PSU | Standard 460W, unknown model

Here's what I upgraded to:
Case | Fractal Design Focus G ATX Mid Tower
CPU | AMD Ryzen 7 2700X w/ Wraith Prism Cooler
MB | MSI B450 Bazooka V2
RAM | Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB DDR4-3200 C16 (2x8GB)
GPU | MSI RX 590 8GB ARMOR OC
SSD | Samsung 860 EVO 1TB
PSU | Corsair Vengeance 650M 650 W 80+ Silver Semi-Modular
Monitor | Samsung 27" LED Curved Monitor at 1080p 144Hz

It is a pretty solid balanced build. Good for very strong 1080p performance with high FPS. Some 1440p gameplay with the odd setting dialed back.
