Your chosen board may need BIOS update before Ryzen 5 3600 can be used on it.
Get 3200mhz ram instead.
Your SSD choice is bad, replace to Crucial Mx500.
Replace GTX 1660 ti to GTX 1660 Super. Similar performance for less $.
Replace PSU to Seasonic.

A DIY will almost always be more "future proof" than an OEM build, as they are easily upgradeable. The MSI B450 Tomhawk Max doesn't need the bios update, for the R5 3600 to work, and really is the best B450 motherboard you can buy. Deepcool power supplies are junk.
