They should fit together no problem. Just make sure the GPU does in the correct PCIe slot according to your motherboard manual and your RAM fits in the correct slots. One question I have with the parts is if your kit of RAM is a single stick vs a pack of 2 sticks and also why it is such a low speed. Ryzen CPUs such as the R5-3600 you have do better with dual channel memory (where you have two sticks of RAM placed into the correct channels in your motherboard for better memory bandwidth) as well as higher RAM speed. If you're using a single stick of slower memory here, you will be limiting the maximum performance of your CPU. It'll probably be fine now since you are only using a GTX-1660ti, but if you plan on upgrading to a better graphics card in the future, the RAM should be something to keep in mind.
