I got the following build that's intended for 3D rendering, machine learning and gaming. Since this is my first serious PC build, can someone help to check:
  1. if the components are compatible
  2. if the cooling and power is enough to support the build
  3. if the performance of components are on par with each other
  4. if there're better valued products that I should consider buying instead
Thanks in advance!

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB Video Card
Recommended System Power (W) 650
You've put together a good system but it's lacking a bit on the PSU. I would not use anything less than 650 watts from a high quality brand for a build like yours. Here's a few very good options-
650 Watt PSU's
Cool thanks for the info. I have updated my PSU to Corsair RMx 650W.

Is cooling good enough for the system? Do I need to buy extra case fans?

Thansk for your reply! There're some really good suggestions and I have updated my cpu fan, memory and storage. Can I ask you about the rationale behind your other suggestions?

I noticed the the Gigabyte motherboard you suggested is a bit cheaper than the ASUS one. What do I lose out of that and why is that not a problem?

I don't really know what are the differences between the GPUs from different brands, why do you select the EVGA one?

Is 750W PSU needed? The power supply calculator I tried suggests 650W should be enough?

Thanks!
