[Question] Building first PC - Need some advice

Hey, I was hoping to get some advice. This will be the first computer I'll potentially build and I want to make sure I'm not making any mistakes here.
I basically went on PC Parts Picker after reading a bunch of reviews and articles and tried to put a computer together, I have no idea what I'm doing, I essentially followed advice from reviews and chose highest rated components while trying to be as cheap as possible. It turned out to be 2 grand which is pretty rough. If someone wouldn't mind taking a look at the list and letting me know if there's any substitutions I can make to lower the price, that would be aces.

How sketchy are second hand parts? I read that people use gpus to mine bitcoins and stuff which is no bueno for the gpu then sell them but is there anything to kinda lookout for or is it all just random?
Some of my concerns regarding the build are
Cooling, from what I've read the included stock cooler with the Ryzen 7 3700x is pretty decent. I'm not really looking to overclock the CPU but is there any detriment to the life of the CPU over time by not having better cooling?
X570 motherboards, I read something along the lines of with the new generation of Ryzen CPUs there may be some BIOS issues with older X-whatever motherboards and you'll need an older CPU to be able to boot and update the BIOS. So the 570 is the safest bet. I'm trying to save money where ever I can so is there maybe an older motherboard that is 1000000% known to work with a ryzen 7 3700x?
2070 super, how super is it? It was only 100ish more than the 2070 but I don't really understand what it means in terms of real world performance, I saw a lot of graphs with benchmarks but how worth it is the super over the regular 2070?
How does RAM overall contribute to your computer? What would be the advantage of 16 vs 8gb in terms of real performance that you notice? Is it better to split the ram into more sticks and use all the slots on the motherboard?
Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks for taking the time.

Tron v9.6.0 (2016-10-02) AQ // Add debug log upload (-udl); significantly improve Telemetry scripts; add automatic OandOShutUp10

Background

Tron is a script that "fights for the User." Think of it as a "tech-on-a-thumb-drive" that automates the majority of tedious work in cleaning a Windows system.
The goal is ~85% automation, with the understanding that some things are always better left to the discretion of the tech. It is built with heavy reliance on community input and updated regularly.
Bug reports, critiques and suggestions are welcome (see how NOT to report bugs). If you have issues with this release, post a top-level comment and myself or one of the mods will answer, typically in <24 hours.

Sequence of operation

Prep > Tempclean > De-bloat > Disinfect > Repair > Patch > Optimize > Wrap-up | (Manual tools)
Saves a log to C:\Logs\tron\tron.log (configurable).

Changelog

(significant changes in bold; full changelog on Github)
v9.6.0 (2016-10-02) AQ
  • AQ = Released from Antarctica
tron.bat
  • + Add new -udl switch and associated UPLOAD_DEBUG_LOGS variable. Use this switch to have Tron email tron.log and the system GUID dump to Vocatus upon completion. NOTE! Log files can contain personal information such as file names on the system and it's possible I will see them when looking through the log. I don't care what files are on a system but it IS something to be aware of
Stage 2: De-bloat
  • * Suppress output of by_name debloat by default, and add support for VERBOSE switch to affect this step and display output to the console instead of log file
Stage 3: Disinfect
  • + Add job "JRT" (Junkware Removal Tool by Malwarebytes). Currently disabled pending troubleshooting
  • - Remove obsolete code for RogueKiller
Stage 4: Repair
  • stage_4_repair.bat
    • * Embed contents of disable_windows_10_upgrade_registry_entries.reg directly into script. Removes dependence on an external .reg file
  • purge_windows_7-8-81_telemetry.bat
    • * Embed contents of disable_telemetry_registry_entries.reg directly into script. Removes dependence on an external .reg file
    • + Add updates 2882822 3050265 3065987 3075851 3102810 3118401 3135445 3138612 3173040 from here. Thanks to HeyYou13
  • purge_windows_10_telemetry.bat
    • + Add job OandOShutUp10. Tron now automatically applies all immunizations from OandOShutUp10. Thanks to ItsNotHectic
    • ! Fix broken path on setacl.exe call. Thanks to Seascan
    • ! Fix broken path on Spybot call. Thanks to Seascan
    • * Embed contents of disable_telemetry_registry_entries.reg directly into script. Removes dependence on an external .reg file
Stage 5: Patch
  • * Update 7-Zip binaries to v17.03

Download

  1. Primary method: Download a self-extracting .exe pack from one of the mirrors:
    Mirror HTTPS HTTP Location Host
    Official link link US-TX SGC-Hosting
    #1 link link US-NY danodemano
    #2 link link US-GA TheCronus89

    #10 --- link UK nickuk (ClanPlanet)
    #11 link --- AU agent-squirrel
  2. Secondary: The BT Sync key is no longer published because it was having issues with large swarms (failed to replicate reliably). You can get the key from an old thread or just download from one of the static pack mirrors instead.
  3. Tertiary: Connect to the SyncThing repo (instructions) to get fixes/updates immediately. This method has some risks and you should only use it if you know about them.
  4. Quaternary: Source code
    All the code for Tron is available on Github (Note: this doesn't include many of the utilities Tron relies on to function). If you want to view the code without downloading a ~500MB package, Github is a good place to do it.

Command-Line Support

Tron has full command-line support. All flags are optional, can be used simultaneously, and override their respective script default when used.

Gaming PC Build Help

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Gaming - particularly modern open world gaming (Witcher 3, GTA V). That should cover any other gaming needs I have as they'd be the most resource intensive.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
Looking to achieve 60fps on decently high settings. I haven't picked a monitor but I don't expect my resolution to be abnormally large. Single screen. Sorry I can't be of more help. If that's not enough to go by let me know.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
Excluding peripherals I'd like to keep it around $1400. At a max if possible.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
Australia.
Post a draft of your potential build here (specific parts please). Consider formatting your parts list. Don't ask to be spoonfed a build (read the rules!).

Provide any additional details you wish below.
Just some additional notes:
CPU - I was told to get the 1600, rather than the 1600X because it can be overclocked to achieve the same results at a cheaper price. Does that sound right?
MOTHERBOARD - Consistently recommended.
MEMORY - Have been suggested to take 16GB. Is the brand ok or are there better options?
STORAGE - Have opted to splurge and grab a SSD. Not sure if this particular choice, however, would suit my exact needs. Any better suggesions? Been told the Internal Hard Drive is a solid choice.
VIDEO CARD - It's been suggested that I try to get a GTX 970 second hand due to bitcoin miners inflating the market for GTX 1060's so I'm not sure if I'm making the most economical choice here (or if it's even the right card for me). Any thoughts?
CASE - Been told this was a solid choice.
POWER SUPPLY - Now apparently my system should draw somewhere between 300-380 Watts over power, under a full load. This supply that I've been suggested is 750W. Would it be better to be recommended a supply at around 500-550 watts instead?
Any other queries, questions please let me know. I really appreciate any input :-).

Just some additional notes:
I plan to have this build for a long, long time. 2016ish games and under are my aim. I have a big backlog.
CPU - I was told to get the 1600, rather than the 1600X because it can be overclocked to achieve the same results at a cheaper price. Does that sound right?
MOTHERBOARD - Hear the MSI isn't much different to this one by a lot of people but was pushed towards my current mobo because apparently MSI has "Bad vrm cooling, limited bios , infrequent updates".
MEMORY - Have been suggested to take 16GB. Is the brand ok or are there better options? I'm aware the 3000 will be downclocked to 2933 as per Mobo specs.
STORAGE - Have opted to splurge and grab a 520GB SSD. Plan to have a wide variety of games.
VIDEO CARD - It's been suggested that I try to get a GTX 970 second hand due to bitcoin miners inflating the market for GTX 1060's so I'm not sure if I'm making the most economical choice here (or if it's even the right card for me). Any thoughts? I'm thinking biting the bullet and grabbing the 1060 might be the go.
CASE - Been told this was a solid choice.
POWER SUPPLY - Feel pretty confident with this.
Any other queries, questions please let me know. I really appreciate any input :-).

Update my pc for 144hz Rocket League

Parts to upgrade : Graphics card and monitor
Budget : $1000 AUD but ideally <700
Current Build : PCPartPicker part list
Timeframe : Within the next few weeks, depending on bitcoin crashes and AMD card prices
Overclock: Comfortable OCing the card, doesn't really matter though.
Buying from: MSY, PCCaseGear, Mwave or an overseas vendor if shipping is reasonable
Use case: I want to get a 24" 1080p 144hz flicker free monitor to replace a dying second monitor, and a graphics card that will run rocket league at 144hz (not particularly hard but my 7870 gets about 130 on high settings). I want Freesync/gsync so I can comfortably play other games if I ever decide I want to do that, but getting ~60 fps on medium settings is more than acceptable. Otherwise I just use my computer for web browsing, watching videos, light video editing and word processing. Currently looking at a 1050 ti OC and an AOC G2460PG but wondering if freesync and a good deal on a 470 if bitcoins tank is a better option.

Edit: Forgot to add the optional mesh side panel with 4x 120mm fans
I already have the motherboard, processor, storage and power supply.
Remembering that these are Australian prices, how does this build look for a general purpose workstation / folding / gaming rig? It's main goal is for 120FPS on 120Hz monitors in eyefinity (Once you've gone 120Hz you can never go back), and compute (fold/mine) like a mofo, but I also work on it. (Autodesk suite, Premiere, 3DSM, SolidWorks, Inventor and more)
I would have liked to have gone a little further here and there, but I have to draw the line somewhere. To be specific where I would have liked to not cut corners:
The quadfire dilemma I had not originally planned to go for quad 7970s, the aim was just trifire to push me near that 120FPS for eyefinity, well beyond in the most intensive games for a single monitor and reduce microstuttering. I did not like the idea of the cards trying to peel hot air off the PCB on its sibling card like they were suffocating and suffering from asthma, so I planned on using an Asus Rampage IV Extreme, using slots one, four and seven to allow a one expansion slot gap between each card, in a Raven RV02 (non evo). Then my buddy (who also does Bitcoin mining) pointed out that if I kept the gigabyte board I would only spending an additional $0~ to $200~ (depending if I sold the Gigabyte board) by NOT purchasing the much more expensive Asus board and getting a fourth 7970 instead. We worked out the math and the extra card's Mhash/s would pay for itself in two months. Noise and heat aren't a huge issue as it's only temporary until I sort out the water loop. I'll also be getting a bit more gaming performance (when it works) and my general workstation tasks like rendering (V-Ray RT, SW etc.) will also be happy with the extra GPU compute power.
Displays
I have a HighGrade triple 24" stand and had to return the monitor I just bought, and am still yet to decide 100% on which displays but I am leaning towards three BenQ XL2420T 24" 120Hz 1080P monitors. Unlike the 120Hz Samsungs, they have VESA mounts and unlike the 120Hz Asus monitors, I'm not paying a premium for Nvidia 3D Vision that I'm not going to use. Really looking for suggestions/recommendations here!
The case The 650D can fit a thin 280 rad in the top & 120 on the rear. With the HDD cage removed, 200 in the front or 240 on the floor, perhaps a combination of both with some modification (though unlikely, I enjoy a challenge). I could make it nice and neat, but I think I still prefer a chiller under my house with lines routed through the floor. Thinking of using a quality 1/4HP or 1/10HP Aquarium chiller for the job (only a couple hundred more than a good radiator setup). I'm still not 100% set on the 650D and open to other case suggestions. I appreciate the functionality of the Switch 810 but I do not like its aesthetics or size at all. Caselabs are too expensive once optioned and shipped to Australia. Very open to suggestions here also.
Thanks!

[Build Ready] ~$1250 AUD build, plan so far

Planning for a build that will be used for some light video editing as well as gaming. Not going to overclock graphics so that's why I went for smaller PSU. Any thoughts on this Case vs Corsair Carbide 200r? Any other advice VERY much appreciated. Thanks. (FYI, everything will be from MSY)
