What motherboard to buy using AMD 7 2700x, GeForce RTX 2060, and DDR4 3600?
Will my MSI B450M PRO-VHD MAX take full advantage of it? What is a better motherboard option? Also, using Thermaltake SMART 600W power supply.

B450 Tomahawk Max looks really good. I like that it has more PCI slots.
According to PCPartPicker, I will be drawing about 384W. What manufacture and how many watts should I get?
 
Agreed on psu.
The Tomahawk max should work fine and work if you chose a 3000 series cpu out the box.
But you may have to run lower ram mhz for the 2700x which isn't the mobo's fault.
The native ram speed supported for the 2000 series is 2933.
Not that 3600 can't run, it will take alot of fiddling and testing to find the right timings.

I usually guide myself by a psu tier.
Corsair TXM, RMX, EVGA G2/P2, there are quite a few solid options, depending on availavility.
