So guys I'm thinking of buying a new pc this summer.These are the specs:
GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 Super Windforce
CPU:Ryzen 5 3600
Motherboard:MSI b450 tomahawk max
RAM: Teamgroup T-force 3600mhz
PSU: EVGA 750w 80+ Gold (probably going to change it for something modular)
The ssd will likely be nvme but not sure which one exactly.
I just wanna know if I it is a good build since this will be the first PC I'm building by myself. I did a lot of research. And also is it worth it buying r7 3700x if possible?
(I'd really like to avoid downgrading from the 2070)

You don't need a 750W PSU. If a quality 550 or 650W will save you money then get that. I'm also not sure if you can use 3600MHz ram with the 3600. You can back down to 3200MHz ram and probably get very similar frame rates. You might want to see about getting a 570 board.

$133 for a x570 board. Claims to have $40 savings with some AMD CPUs.

If you are just gaming then the 3600 is fine. If you are gaming and streaming, or doing other CPU heavy work then the 3700(X) might be worth it. For just gaming however the 3600 is fine.

I think it is compatible with 3600mhz. I'll probably buy the r7 3700x if I have enough money. By the way I'm not really informed what is the difference between the lower class mobos and the upper class.

The biggest difference is features. Built in wifi, more SATA ports, dual M.2 slots, etc. The difference that can't be seen right away is better cooling, faster RAM support, more VRM to provide better voltage regulation, etc. It's possible for a B450 board to be better than an x570, but in general getting the newer one is better. If nothing else in knowing your x570 can support all the 3xxx chips out of the box without having to worry about an updated bios.
