What is your system budget? What is the make/model of said PSU? The 3700x is a better buy, than the 3800x, unless said 3800x is on a significant sale. I would get 3600 CL16, for ram. That is the price/performance sweet spot, for Ryzen 3000 series CPU's.

That is a decent enough PSU. That was my biggest concern. I avoid Asus, due to poor customer service, but the x570 Tuf is supposedly a good board, for the money. I am not sure about the prime. You might want to look at B550 boards, though. You lose PCI-E gen 4, on the second M.2 slot, but still get 3.0, on the other one. From what I have seen, the B550 version, of an x570 board, has faster ports, in the back.
