Couple of things I would say, first I would not buy a high end graphics card right now, Nvidia is announcing new cards early September, that will bring down prices and for that price you will be able to buy the new stuff that should be much faster.

For the mobo , since this is a higher end setup, I would say to go with a better quality B550, the Extreme 4 has a VRM that is found on the very top tier models, it comes with good connectivity as well the price is spot on.

I've a question - how did the cooler you listed fit the Motherboard? (been looking online as i've purchaced this board and cannot find the dimentions for the cpu area i don;t want to get a good cooler to not have it fit - was there space for the ram or did you get low profile sticks? (if you've time do you know the CPU area dimentions or is this now standard on all boards)?

- Why not a faster m.2 NVME drive for the same cost as the MX500?
