Soon, I will be making my modest little gaming rig (for 1080p gaming), so I would appreciate your opinions:

Mobo: B450 Tomahawk Max
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1660 GAMING OC 6G (I already own it)
PSU: Thermaltake Smart 730w 80 plus (I already own it)
SSD: AMD radeon 240 Gb (I already own it)
Case: Some generic

So pretty much I need a new Mobo, RAM and CPU, and my budget is limited to the abovementioned components' current price range, so any suggestion will be great! Thanks!

By 'fit' you mean...?

I don't see any glaring compatibility issues amongst the components. Whether they'd fit the case will depend on the dimensions of this generic case you mention.
Hey, thanks for confirming that the components are compatible - that is what I was asking... As for the casing, it will definitely be a much less issue to chose from, when the time comes that is... :)

Looks good to me as well. If you could get it for about the same price would 3600mhz ram also be nice since these cpu's should be able to handle that,but the 3200mhz should work fine.

Hey thanks! Though, would there be any significant difference between 3200 and 3600 Mhz RAM gaming wise? I have 1080p 60 Mhz monitor, so anything 60+ fps wouldn't be detected...
