Do you have any idea why that board costs as much as it does? Mostly because of the Z590 chip. Do you know why Z590 boards are expensive? Mostly because they provide up to 24 lanes of PCIe bandwidth. Your CPU also provides 20 lanes all by itself. We can see you are using a whopping 4 lanes with your SSD. A B560 or H510 would have cut your motherboard cost by 75%. Seeing as all of those PCIe lanes are wasted, that would have been a better choice.

Aside from that, I would add in a 2060, 3070, or 1660 and another SSD for games.
