I am trying to build my chest but seening slow growth and unsure if this is due to calorie intake or over working,

I lift 35kg dumbells then 32.5 then 30kg doing 3 sets on incline 3 sets on flat and 3 sets on decline leaving 1.30 minutes reat inbetween sets. Then use cables for stretching/sculpting. My diet is mainly high protein and low carbs but under 2000 calories as my body stores body fat over this

Muscle growth is a very slow process.

So you want a massive chest. Shit who doesn't.  You asked if you are over working it with that workout, no you are definitely not. It's a great workout though. You can work your chest 2 times a week at most, excluding pushups. For maximal hypertrophy,  do isolation moves like the cables flys first then hit the big compound moves after. Make sure your protein consumption is on par with your bodyweight, 200 lbs = 200 grams of protein. I tried to keep this short so, practice good form, ear clean, and switch up training every month or 2.
