Need Help Choosing Parts

I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice.
i plan on buying the nh-u12s somewhere else if microcenter doesn't have it, and i heard thermal paste comes with it.
Planning to get a 3070 later in December if they have any in stock or maybe an amd gpu

    Hello @kolofs

    Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community!  What kind of games are you looking to play and at what resolution?  I think a 3070 is a great pick up for this build and that is something I would look at.  You can also wait for the RX 6000 to release to see what the GPU market looks like.  

    One change I would recommend is removing the second SSD, the 2.5''.  You don't generally need to have a second SSD unless you are planning on utilizing the higher reading/writing speeds commonly used in high resolution content creation.  A M.2 and a HDD are more than enough for a majority of people.

    I wouldn't worry about getting an NH-U12S unless you want it for aesthetics or are planning on overclocking, otherwise the stock cooler is more than enough.
