Hello, I'm building my first pc in a couple of weeks, I did some researching to find some good parts. Here are the parts I've choose.

I'm not sure if these are compatible or if I will need a bios update or something. This is my first build so I'm practically clueless.
I want to be able to build my pc and just power it up and start playing/using it. If there are any concerns with these parts please let me know.
If you have any questions I'll be active all day so please let me know. Have a great day!

If you plan on using it for gaming, you might find 500GB fill up fairly quickly, but that's fine if you're constantly swapping round games.

Any particular reason why 2nd Gen Ryzen and a 5600XT?

Thanks, I will indeed get a better quality power supply. Another thing I wanted to ask, would I need a bios update or anything like that? Thanks so much.
