Final build for Gaming PC- any feedback would be appreciated

Heyo Overclockers,

I've been undecided as of lately on which PC Build I should go for and which parts would be the most ideal for the best performance.
I'm making this thread for self assurance that I've not picked the wrong parts OR that I have better options that I'm not aware of.

Motherboard: Gigabyte x570 Aorus Master
CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12A
RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3600MHz, CL16-16-16-36, 1.35V
GPU: Asus RoG Strix - RTX 2080Ti 11Gb GDDR6 (OC Edition)
SSD: Addlink X70 1.0TB - M.2 2280 NVMe, RGB Heatsink
HDD: Seagate BarraCuda 6.0TB - 3.5 Inch SATA, 6 Gb/s 5400 RPM, 256MB Cache
PSU: Corsair RM850x - 850W 80+ Gold Fully Modular
PC Case: Corsair iCUE 465x - Mid Tower ATX
Fans Case: Corsair LL120 RGB - 120mm PWM (3 Fans)

The main game I'm playing is CS:GO and although this PC seems a bit overkill for the game, I've read that it's really important to have a really high-end PC to get the maximum competitive edge over other players.
In a Competitive manner the Client-side: Movements, Shots, Spraying, Velocity Shifts are calculated first by the PC and then this information being sent to the Server ASAP, meaning if your PC is extremely fast and is calculating all the Engine Physics with dead accuracy and speed then you'll be favored by the Server in regard of 'who killed who first' and have a much smoother experience overall.
It's vary from network to network ofc', I'm trying to eliminate any disadvantage that I have.

Also soon, Asus is going to release the first 360Hz Monitor and the High FPS will definitely make this a really smooth experience.


In general I'll be using this PC for other games as well, not just CS:GO.

So what do you think?
I'm really fetching here for self assurance that this PC Build is really Good and that I did not chose poorly and missed better alternatives.

Need to add some RGB. Everyone knows RGB increases your FPS and makes headshots easier.

My current PC doesn't have RGB whatsoever so I'm eager to build one with RGB for the first time.

You dont need an 850 watt for a system like that is overkill and there are better options than the RMx such as the Seasonic Focus Plus GX / Prime Ultra or the Fractal Design Ion+
The RMx is not bad but since its so focused on being quiet it tends to run very hot

Asus Strix cards by the way are way overpriced so you are getting ripped off and you get an MSI, Gigabyte or pretty much any other card just as good but way cheaper

Edit: and last step up to a Pro model of the Barracuda or get an Ironwolf Pro since they are faster (7200 RPM vs 5900) better and more durable / reliable and you get a longer warranty (5 years on the pro models) and even two years of free data recovery service
