Upgrading from 8 year old build (i7 3770K) - Need Help!

Hello,
I've been out of the game with hardware for quite some time now thus asking for the advise. Looking for best build for the $ to replace my good old 3770K.
Long story short:
Since the beginning I've been with Intel but for this build I think I want to go team red (not only because performance wise they got better but $ also).
Budget is tight so I'm trying to squeeze most of out the buck. I don't really care much about i.e: 5 degrees Celsius difference or minor FPS improvement. Performance to $ ratio (ROI) needs to be there. But if I would have to give you the number we are looking $900 +-
Would like to reduce noise to the minimum since I'm planing to place the case on the table.
Currently using 34 inch LG monitor (3440x1440) just fyi.
Not really interested in OCing anymore and not interested much in RGB theme.
Use for this build is a mix of:
- "light" gaming i.e: csgo, gta5, witcher bf4 - nothing crazy
- work mostly email, ssh, visio, slack etc.. so nothing intense
- 1080/4K drone footage editing as a hobby(powerDirector) - I've done 4K footage editing on my current setup and I didn't really complain but thought I'll mention it.
So Far Build(as of 3/27/2020):
- CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 @ $160 (can't beat microcenter) - thoughts?
- HSF: Not sure if I should go with stock or beQuiet (Rock Slim) or Noctua (nh-u12a) so for the sake @ $65.I don't trust AIO since once I had a leak and it fried my GPU so... - Thoughts ?
- MOBO: Gigabyte B450 AORUS M @ $65 (microcenter) - I've also considered ASRock B450M PRO4 which would be $5 less than AORUS but my 8 year old rig is running on Gigabyte and I've never had issues with it. Also I don't see PCIE 4.0 to be huge at this point so I think B450 is solid - What do you think?
- MEM: Don't really care much since no OCing so i.e: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB 2400 @ 68 (newegg). Any other company you would recommend?
- STORAGE: I've heard good reviews about Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME @ $100. Don't really need 500GB since 256 is plenty but $20 difference between 256<>500 is no brainier imho thoughts?! I have spare spinning for data so we good there.
- GPU: Tough one for me - undecided. Currently running on rx 480 and had nothing but problems (drivers etc). I don't know if I should just go back to team green on this one. Perhaps 2060S or 2070S? Need to do more research if 2070s is worth it that extra $100 +-
- CASE: I want to go mATX and I have two on my mind: Corsair Crystal 280X @ $95 (non RGB) or NZXT H510 @ 70 - Anyone with one of these cases that could share your opinion? I love the isolation for the PSU and cable management.
- PSU: Another tough one for me. Estimate Wattage with this setup is at around 321W (estimated with 2060S). Primarily it needs to be as quite at possible and would like it to be modular (less cable mess). Was looking at beQuiet PSUs but again I would love to hear your opinion on this one. For the sake I've looked at EVGA SuperNOVA @ $80 ($20 rebate).
That being said rough total so far: $608‬ (without GPU)?!
Trying to see how can this be optimized and of course your opinion matters!
Constructive criticism is welcomed.

[Build Help] First time builder with a decent sized budget, planning for gaming and hobbies.

Build Help:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes, and I've read through several of the recommended resources as well.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
For this section, I think I will list my priorities in order to better emphasize what I'm looking for:
(1) Maximize performance for a gaming system. My budget is around $1500, not including monitor(s) and keyboard/mouse. I'm planning to go into the $1800-$2000 range once I include accessories, but I want to focus on the build first.
(2) Animation/game development. In my professional job, I do a lot of work with 3D modeling, but it's entirely research-focused. This means that I know how to use a lot of different modeling programs, but I rarely get to spend time having fun with it. As a side hobby, I would like a system that can easily support things like Unreal Engine and Unity, as well as software necessary to design my own 3D assets and test game functions while having notepads/tutorials/etc open on a separate monitor. I would also include in this entry the ability to work with Adobe products like Photoshop and Illustrator.
(3) Video editing. This is closely related to the above, but another hobby I have is hiking and adventure sports. I recently bought a GoPro and have some great footage that I haven't been able to do much with yet. I suspect this hobby will continue into the future, so I would like to account for this, but it is definitely below priorities #1 and #2. I would also like to be able to create game trailers, re: priority #2. I haven't figured out specifically what software I will use since I currently do everything in iMovie, but since this is a lower priority, I can come back to it later.
(4) Streaming. This priority is definitely the lowest of the 4, but I've always wanted to give it a shot. Since I don't have experience already with streaming, I am looking for a rig that could simply handle the streaming basics, and if I end up really liking it, I can design a future build around optimizing this aspect.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
I don't have enough experience with this category to give a great answer. I've been doing all my PC gaming on a Macbook for the past ~8 years (My priorities have simply been elsewhere - on furthering my career, and I've moved a number of times, including to different countries). I'm mostly just tired of my Intel graphics card.
A better answer here might be to describe the games I currently play. I rotate mostly between Cities: Skylines, Starcraft II (more custom games than laddering), and Minecraft. I also plan to finally buy Stardew Valley, though I can't imagine this changes anything. In general, I tend to enjoy sandbox, strategy, and adventure games more than shooters or high APM games. So within that framework, maximizing what I can get for my price. I would enjoy cleaner, crisper images over having the ability to click a bunch of times repeatedly, so I guess resolution is more important to me than framerate? For my budget, I don't think I'll necessarily have to sacrifice one or the other.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
As said above, I'm looking at about $1500 for the rig itself, and I'm willing to spend $1800-$2000 when you combine it with monitors, keyboard/mouse, and other accessories. I've also been waiting to do this for a long time, so if I have to wait another month or two to increase the budget a bit more for a specific part, I'm happy to do so. I don't need to buy right now.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
United States (MA).
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!).
This is absolutely the part I need help with and the main reason I'm on this subreddit. I have never done anything like this before and so I have a very limited knowledge of what I'm getting myself into. To put this in context, I'm still just familiarizing myself with which parts I need to actually buy, so I'm not even certain I have all of the categories that I need to fill. I want to build my own rather than buy because this is a skill I want to learn - I want to know what each part of my system does and why I have each component that I do. So, this whole thing is a learning process for me - assume I'm starting from a level of zero knowledge unless demonstrated otherwise.
That said, I've gone through the Logical Increments suggested builds and pieced together something from around the "Excellent" to "Outstanding" range ($1300-$1500). Here's what I have so far:
Type Item Price
Graphics Card XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT $400
CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X $330
HSF Dark Rock 4 $75
Motherboard Gigabyte X570 Aurus Elite $200
RAM Sniper X Series 32 GB DDR4 $152
HDD Seagate Constellation 1 TB $36 (currently out of stock)
SSD Intel 660p 1 TB $95
Power Supply Seasonic 650PX $103
Case Stryker SE $155
Monitor Dell UltraSharp U2414H 23.8" $100 (buying used from a friend)
Monitor (2) Dell UltraSharp U2414H 23.8" $170 (buy new one to match)
This brings the current total cost to $1816 including both monitors, which is about in the range of what I want to spend.
Provide any additional details you wish below.
I'll list a few specific questions to help guide what I am looking for right now:
There are probably obvious flaws in this initial design, but I'm here to learn and to put effort into it. I'll update the build throughout the day as people leave comments (I'll be at work, so I'll check in every so often and update whenever I can). Please do not hold back - I want to be confident in what I'm buying, and this post/getting feedback is part of the learning process. And if there's any other info that might be relevant to the build, I am happy to expand on what I've written so far. Thanks in advance!
NOTE: You do not have to follow this format, but please be sure to answer these questions. Please do not ask to simply be given a build. You are welcome to delete this section.

First actual build although i've helped with many over the years and my last PC was custom. That said I'm getting pretty frustrated at this point so maximum detail would be preferred.
I've hooked up everything on the case except the final HDD, which i plan to swap out from my current computer (do have a blank sdd hooked up currently). When hooked up to a monitor and with a cable plugged in everything lights up, the HSF spins, but the case fans do not.
They are currently hooked up as:
Top A1
Rear A2
Front B1
Side B2
Further for all testing i'm about to mention I tried turning the fan speed knobs.
With this config I went into the bios and looked at the fan speeds which were all solid 0's except for the HSF. I tried a few things to see if I could get them to spin (mostly screwing with the levels and pushing the "Set all to max" button), but could not. Also worth noting that to kill 2 birds with one stone I hooked up my keyboard and mouse through the USB 2.0 slots on the front panel to see if that was totally dead. Could still be that the fan controllers are somehow blown, but my keyboard and mouse worked fine.
I have tried running them in a slightly different config (i think just swapped) and also tried just hooking up the top fan (both just connecting to the PSU and PSU + fan controller), no dice, although it should be noted at that time I was NOT connected to a screen, and it wanted input for how to handle the connected SSD.
It's not a great shot of the cables, but here's what I have for the PSU hookup: http://imgur.com/a/nL4C2
Basically just each fan to a different connector on the same cable, and then the controller hookups are as described above.
Finally the case instructions do not mention the case fans AT ALL except to confirm they exist in the diagram, which I find mildly annoying given this is a non standard setup and this case comes highly recommended by many i know for beginners
So yeah i'm kinda at a loss. I figure I can call them tomorrow and try to troubleshoot through whatever support they give, but thought I'd see if I'd made some obvious mistake here. The only thing I can think of is that because it wasn't actually getting past handling the ssd when I was first booting up and testing, that maybe I should try hooking up a single fan again now that it won't bother with that prompt. Any other thoughts or obvious fuckups?
Bonus totally unrelated rant about Newegg
I feel I should mention (mostly out of spite) the reason I have the wrong Noctua + adapter setup is because I ordered the correct one through Newegg or one of their affiliates (i'd swear I was just trying to get it all through newegg, but maybe I didn't, either way off their site). They sent me this one(which does not work with the new AMD chips). I talked to newegg and they told me "lol contact the seller". When prodded admitted they might do something if I jump through enough hoops. Seller spent 2 days emailing me once a day to tell me that "PLEASE DON'T LEAVE BAD FEEDBACK WITHOUT CONTACTING US!", and then "yeah we gave you the wrong part, and we don't carry the part you want, even though you ordered that exact part from us through its listing on Newegg. If you have the box send it back and we'll give you a full refund after we get the part". I didn't even bother to figure out if they planned to cover the shipping and the insurance they recommend i get
So I said fuck it, bought the adapter kit, and whined about it all here instead because I'd really just like to finish the damn build.
