Looks pretty good to me overall. You should get a stronger GPU though. Something like a 1660 Super or even 3060 Ti if you can find one in stock at reasonable prices.

Thanks, and wow graphic cards are crazy right now.

Just spent 3hrs looking for anything reasonable. Best I found was Sapphire pulse radeon rx 5600xt for $427. looks like I might wait for prices and supply to relax.

Also I used pcpartpicker.com to double check my compatibility and it said
"the Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply does not."
Do I need to pick a different power supply?

You'll only need dual 4-pin power to the motherboard when you plan on doing overclocking.
