I would go for a 850W PSU and a Seagate Exos :). That is just my personal preference, though, and it would also be significantly more expensive. To be honest, I don't see anything wrong with that build.

Yep, an extra other SSD seems like a great idea. Another option, besides the Crucial, would be a 500Gb Western Digital Blue, they are around 50 pounds :). If you go for 1Tb it is still less than 90 pounds.

Drop to B550 or change brand.
Asus has the worst X570 chipset coolers straight from anus of brand hype marketroids:
Actual heatsink under marketing excrements in small.
And pretty much relies on constant airflow from constantly running fan. (constricted by more marketing BS)
With whole crud in the worst place directly under graphics cards to be bathed in its heat.​
Put high end card on top of it and in longer gaming sessions chipset temperature or fan speed go up lot.
And should be easy to guess what happens if/when fan wears out.

Gigabyte and MSI have proper size heatsinks farther from heat of graphics cards and capable to staying mostly passive with good case cooling.

Heavily brand and Ridiculously Grossly Bloated overpriced memory.
This is more proper price for standard latency RGB kit:

And this one would have quite good latencies still for £70 less:

Actually even that £130 Patriot has tighter latencies.


Zero sense to waste limited M.2 slots for tiny capacity (for budget) drive, which would start filling after couple big games.
Besides of no benefit PCIe v4 hype extra having also Samsung's further brand buttrape overprice.
Even this would be very salty price for half TB with good for gaming PC 1TB drive available for the same price:

And Samsung's price gets 1TB full speed PCIe v3 drive, if wanting extra speed potential for future games.

That extra capacity to actually hold games is far more usefull than Samsung's brand sticker or PCIe v4 hype.

Alpenfohn Brocken 3 is beefier cooler for lot less.
