I would go with a better SSD and ideally M.2/NVMe, look at possibly the Crucial P1 or WD Blue as affordable options, or move upwards to the Corsair MP510, HP EX950, Adata SX8200 Pro. And get at least 500GB.

Might be better off with the Ryzen 3600 instead as you can gain about 20% performance.

I'd try to get at least a 24" monitor too, but that's totally up to you.

RX 580 vs RX 590 isn't a huge difference, so I'd drop down to the 580 if you need to save a bit to afford the other things. Altenratively, you could consider the GeForce 1660 Ti too as it offers more performance without blowing your budget either.

Remove the a400 ssd. Get an nvme ssd instead. Even a cheap intel 660p or crucial p1 (budget nvme) will be a plus (and no wires). Get 480+gb.

Edit, JD’s post has more detail. Concur.
