By the end of November (to take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday) I am am planning to build a PC. I have a good idea of the parts I am looking for and I prepared the list on PcPartPicker (see below). I would like you guys to have a look just in case there is something uncompatible or wrong. Let me know your opinion! My budget is around 1200-1300 GBP.
My biggest doubt is the PSU, I put a 750W hoping it will be enough to power a system with a 3070.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
-The CPU is going to be the brand new Ryzen 5 5600X (I put the 3600XT just to fill up the slot).
-The 3070 is just any 3070. I just hope to get one.
-I already have the RAM & SSD listed.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I do not see anything wrong here. Im not a fan of that particular Case, I guess is up to the buyer taste :)

And yeah the 750 watts unit should be enough for the RTX 3070.
Hi and thank you. What's wrong with the case?
Also, I know that the new 3000 series cards have a different pin. Do they come with an adapter (both the FE and third parties cards)? Or does it come with the PSU?

Nothing "wrong" about the case Im just not a fan of corsair cases, this one in particular is pretty decent airflow wise so no worries in that front. (For less you could get the https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/Y6Crxr/fractal-design-meshify-c-atx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-mesh-c-bko-tg)

The FE cards comes with a new 12 pin conector and do come with an adapter inside the box. Most third party cards comes with two or three 8 pin pcie power cables (the usual ones that comes with the PSUs)
