New build - comments?

Time to replace my 5 year old system - I'm running Win10/64 current version. Here's my current parts list:

Crucial 8GB Single DDR4 2666 MT/s (PC4-21300) SR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory <== 2 of these

ARCTIC Freezer 12 – Compact and Quiet Semi Passive Tower CPU Cooler | 92 mm PWM Fan | for AMD AM4 and Intel 115x CPU | Recommended up to 130 W

TDP APEVIA X-QPACK3-NW-BK Micro ATX Cube Gaming/HTPC Case, Supports Video Card up to 320mm/ATX PS, USB3.0/USB2.0/HD Audio Ports, 1 x 140mm blue LED fan, Flip Open Design, Dust Filter–Black

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 1030 GV-N1030SL-2GL Silent Low Profile 2G <== supports my dual monitors

Samsung 970 EVO 250GB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD (MZ-V7E250BW) <== Boot drive only; no data

Antec HCG750 Bronze Power Supply 750 Watts 80 Plus Bronze PSU with 135mm Quiet DBB Fan, Full Modular, 100% Japanese Capacitors, Active PFC, 5 Years Warranty, ATX12V 2.4

ASUS LGA1151 (300 Series) DDR4 HDMI DVI VGA M.2 mATX Motherboard

Intel Core i7-8700 Desktop Processor 6 Cores up to 4.6 GHz LGA 1151 300 Series 65W

My plan is to restore my current boot drive to the new SSD and hope I don't have to spend hours on the phone with Microsoft getting the system to be authorized/authenticated. Assuming I can do that I'll move my 2 current data drives, optical drive, and multi-card reader to the new system.
