I would be very grateful if someone could get back to me soon about this as I was planning on ordering the parts this weekend.

The parts are :

Cpu - Ryzen 7 2700x

Cpu Cooler - Corsair H100i V2(already purchased)

Motherboard - ASRock X470 Taichi ATX

Memory - Corasir vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4-3000

Storage -Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

Video card - Asus Geforce GTX 1070 8GB Strix

Case - Panteks - enthoo pro ATX Full tower( open to a mid tower if people think I would be better of with one)

Power Supply- EVGA Supernova G3 750W or 1000w

If anyone could give me some tips on this build that'd be great. my Price range sits at about £1000 -£1500.

Planning on using this for gaming and Blender.

Well, you don't need a 750W or 1000W power supply with a single GPU. Supernova G3 is a good choice, but you could look at 550-650W gold rated supplies from the likes of Corsair, Seasonic, or EVGA.

Why the GTX1070? With the RTX2060 and even the GTX1660Ti out there it had better be a good bargain. GTX1070 and GTX1660Ti trade blows, the RTX2060 is slightly better.

Full tower chassis don't offer much these days. Unless you plan for a large number of hard drives or many expansion cards. Or a hardcore water cooling system, most mid towers are adequate for ATX builds.

I run a Enthoo Pro M myself, have two 280mm radiators in there and 7 fans. Only run an M.2 drive, but there is room for two spinning disks if I wanted to add them. And some 2.5" mounts on the back of the motherboard tray, and one on the basement.
