I'd actually recommend something more like this.
Far more power for around the same price. As for peripherals, don't spend too much. You're wasting money if you go out and spend 150 on those things. For the headset, get the Mpow EG3. I have that headset, and it is tremendous value. As for keyboard and mice, that choice is up to you. Look around and research a bit and get one with the features, keys, and buttons that you like. But I wouldn't spend more than 40 on the keyboard and more than 35 on the mouse.
If you can maybe wait a month or two and bump your budget up to around 800, then you get a far more well rounded build.
That keyboard has clicky blue switches, so they may be loud for your taste. Look around for what you may like.
Logitech just makes quality mice.
Probably the best bang for your buck headset. I've got it and it's pretty decent. Gets loud. Base is a little on the low side, but for gaming/watching videos, it's great. Mic is actually quite nice. About above average.
And if you need WiFi/BT, then just slap one of these on as well.
Intel Wi-Fi cards are generally the go-to for good Linux support since you say you don’t care about binary firmware blobs.
You’ll notice they don’t make their own PCIe cards directly, but I’ve had great luck with one of these which is basically just an adapter with a good Intel laptop form-factor card in it.
I bought this, it was only released a few months ago. 2.4ghz, 5ghz and bluetooth 5.0 with aptxhd support.
I mainly got it for the bluetooth support for better audio quality but the wifi works great and connects to both my personal 5ghz network and the main one downstairs (Through 2 walls) just fine.
I highly recommend.

I recommend getting a Bluetooth adapter for your PC and sync your controller to that. I use this PCI one and it works spot on every time. It's acts as wi-fi dongle at the same time so there's that too. Personally I use wired internet so haven't tested out the Wi-Fi signal I get from it but it's certainly a reliable Bluetooth adapter.
Maybe to give some context, I by default try to optimize builds in a price-performance direction. Many builders are not aware they do not need the $400 ROG board and the $300 Full ATX case to end up with a good system.
But now to your specific remarks:
> Like I mentioned, I like to play games that can be CPU heavy as well, so I think I can still benefit from the 3700x opposed to the 3600.
The 3700X won't give you much more performance in games. That's important to realize. Even if games started to target more than 6 cores, the 12 threads of the 3600 would cover that until around 8 to 10 cores are expected. Which will be many years from now. But it's not like there is a drawback in getting the 3700X, apart from the price.
> I think it is cheaper (also easier) to go with a board that has that straight out of the box.
Can't argue with easier (minimally), but not cheaper. Get https://www.amazon.de/Gigabyte-1733-wb1733d-i-Mbps-Express-Adapter/dp/B07FBSV1XZ/ for example and you still save 30-40€.
> If I had more budget I would have wanted a 2080 Super
Then the 2070 Super is preferable to the 5700 XT, since it is indeed a bit faster.
> I am aware a HDD is cheaper, but a SSD is faster and the price is almost negligible.
Not even with your budget is the price difference negligible. If you get a 1TB SSD and a 2TB HDD that will be 200€ cheaper than your current configuration. In the end it's of course you who know best how much storage you need, but more than 1TB "live" SSD storage in a gaming PC is excessive.
> Is there a specific reason you changed the PSU aside from price?
Just to show that a 650W psu is enough. The Whisper M though has the additional advantage of being really quiet.
> You changed the RAM, but obviously I chose that specific RAM because of its RGB elements. Is there any specific reason not to go with the RGB RAM aside from it being more expensive?
> I have read that the Meshify C benefits from having fans in the front, and I think the RGB elements could be a fun addition. Any specific reason you removed the fans?
Just not a part of my lists and my build tool (yet), you can certainly add the fans you prefer here. One or two additional fans won't hurt.
I'm from the UK but you can find the same for wherever you are.

I believe the gigabyte one also has bluetooth 5.0 ( not too sure you can look it up) but I would say these are popular ones and worth money. Personally the asus or gigabyte one will do great!
I can’t speak for all cards out there but I bought this fairly cheap wireless card and it works fine, the only “issue” I had with it was my Xbox One controller doesn’t stay paired to my PC however I have since came to realise that this is an issue with Windows, not the card itself
The Seagate Barracuda ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-BarraCuda-Internal-Drive-Cache/dp/B07H2RR55Q) and the WD Blue HDDs are pretty decent, whichever is the cheapest of the two in your region is what I would go for. Just make sure its 7200rpm and sata 6Gb/s (most are).
As for WiFi cards, anything that is ac wifi (wifi 5 I believe) and is from a trusted brand should work just fine. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-WB1733D-I-1733Mbps-Express-Adapter/dp/B07FBSV1XZ for example, or https://www.amazon.co.uk/T6E-Archer-Wireless-Interface-Low-Profile/dp/B013HCNTZU?th=1 .
This is fantastic - thank you! (edit: I like the choice of case, too!)
Two questions from me - the PSU seems to have been on sale and is now closer to the upper 70's. What would be your opinion if I were to go with an equivalent Bronze-rated offering from Corsair or EVGA? They seem to sell well on Amazon. The max. 5% difference in efficiency doesn't seem that bad?
Secondly - any advantages of the Asus wireless card over something like the Gigabyte GC-WB1733D-I? Only a few pounds of difference, but I'm curious - is it a case of reliability?
A USB solution will work, but you'd be better with a PCI-E WiFi card instead. Your motherboard has a suitable X1 slot next to the X16 slot your GPU is in.
Try this one - it's very well regarded and less than £30.
You need two devices. Bluetooth transceiver to plug in you pc. And Bluetooth receiver that you can carry with you.
I can't recommend specific models but first should look like this (It can look like usb dongle but i couldn't find or you can use tranceiver that connects to pc audiojack) and second like this
Sidenote. If i am not mistaken there shouldn't be difference bettwen Bluetooth 4.2 and Bluetooth 5.0 for stereo headphones.
I'm thinking about buying this WiFi card (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07FBSV1XZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ZUguDbZWZNMJC) to use with my B350 Tomahawk Arctic but don't know if I have the correct PCIe slot? I'm currently just using a graphics card (no sound card etc). Can I buy this?
