I would very much prefer the B450-F over a budget MATX MB for my build
Decent SSD with a bit more storage for a few more bucks, I'll take that into consideration
The Vega 56's Power Usage is almost double the 1660 Ti's and has worse thermals on almost all of its editions. It has bad rating as well.
The MB510L seems like a very decent range, and more suiting to my build rather than the H500, but I picked the H500 for even more and better airflow along with slightly more durability.
I'll also look into that power supply and SeaSonic's PSU's in general
The monitor looks decent, but I think Acer doesn't have a very good reputation with making monitors, does it?
 
MSI motherboards have the best BIOS for Ryzen tuning capabilities and future upgrade. That board is pretty good at its price point with an adequate balance of connectivities and power cycles. The only thing better in b450-f is its VRM mosfets for extreme clocks. I would have selected the Gaming Pro Carbon AC for its all around superiority, but its not currently available. I would take a MSI board for Ryzen anyday over any other brand.

The SSD is significantly better...

The Vega 56 power consumption is 180w TMax vs 120w for the 1660ti. A good PSU like the one included in the build should take care of that adequately. But the performance delta between the two cards is significantly better around the same price. Its obviously the better card...

That case I have built in personally and i can vouch for it. Its pretty good in terms of air flow and cable management. Problem with that case is, its often not available.

EVGA BQ is pretty low quality. Simply not recommended with this kind of a build. Seasonic PSUs are the most revered for its quality and efficiency. They make some of the best PSUs around and the FOCUS line is much better than that EVGA...

Again, that ACER monitor is something I have personal experience with. You can check the reviews and ratings for its quality.

The MSI does have better BIOS indeed, but it has few BIOS cache (Idk if that's what it was called) so if I upgraded to a 3rd gen ryzen processor I'd be stuck with a blue terrible BIOS.
As for the SSD, I'll definitely look into changing it. This Crucial one seems very good.
As for the Vega 56, I'm honestly not comfortable with it, and its reviews are nowhere near as good as the 1660 Ti's. Plus, Geforce Experience is so much better than Amd's software. I use GFE all the time so that would be a nono
Same goes for the MB511. Even though it's more suiting to my build especially in regards to the budget, the H500 is much better.
As for the PSU, I was kinda leaning towards the S12II 620W from the start since Gigabyte's PSUs aren't that reputable. I'll definitely reconsider that.
Thanks a lot for all your suggestions and comments. This really did help me!
