Hey everyone, first time builder here for a desktop computer and would like to get an opinion on the following run down of parts to determine how many Watts should be PSU be and if I do need additional cooling systems for my PC with the build I have. Next to which, would like to know if I can get a 144Hz monitor with the hardware I'm planning to put into this build. And finally, noob question, but do I need to overclock to get my RAM to function at full potential? Or can I just plug and play the 3200 MHz ram from the get go without doing anything much?

Anyways, here are the parts in question:

Processor: AMD RYZEN 5 2600 6 CORE, 3.9GHZ MAX BOOST, 3.4GHZ BASE BOXED PROCESSOR
Motherboard: GIGABYTE B450 AORUS PRO GAMING MOTHERBOARD (AM4)
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX1070 8 GB GDDR5 Windforce 2 OC GV-N1070WF2OC-8GD
Ram: HYPERX PREDATOR RGB 8GB DDR4 3200MHz GAMING 1G x 64-Bit CL16 288-Pin DIMM (HX432C16PB3A/8)
SSD: KINGSTON SSD A400 SATA3 2.5'- 240GB SA400S37/240G
HDD: WESTERN DIGITAL DESKTOP 3.5" 2TB SATA HDD CAVIAR BLUE (WD20EZRZ)
PSU: CORSAIR VS650 650 WATT ATX POWER SUPPLY (Is this enough?)
Monitor: ACER KG241QP 23.6"
Case: CoolerMaster ATX Case

Also, in addition to the questions above, it'd be great to hear from you guys on your thoughts on the build.. (i.e. Is it a a good build? Are there any parts you would change? etc.)

Thanks again and hope to hear from you guys soon!

P.S.: Really appreciate the help since I'm a narbcake at building still. Thank a bunch!
