CPU: GTX 1660
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600
HDD: Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB
SSD: Kingston A400
MB: Gigabyte AB350M AM4?
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2400 MHZ 16 GB
PSU: Corsair VS650
Case: Some Mid-Tower, not decided yet

Put a questionmark at MB because I'm unsure if it would be a good MB for gaming and compatible with the other parts. Are there any alternatives to any of these parts that you recommend for about the same price? Thanks for replies!

I"d suggest you get faster ram with low latency as you have a ryzen cpu and Ryzen loves fast memory and an x470 mobo for only $30 more with better overclocking headroom and compatible out of the box

Some X470 are actually worst than B450's. If you get a good one like Tomahwak or Steel Legend, it will be better than for example the Asus X470 Prime.

Vs is pretty bad, plus the old cx series is even worse both of them are garbage and he should consider changing that power supply.
The new CX is better than the old cx series and better than the vs series.

I would only change one thing, the motherboard, any b450 will be far better because of new features compatible with secong gen CPUs and because of bios compatibility and you will be able to overclock a little with it.
All the other parts are ok, the GPU is powerful enough to play on 1080 and 1440, there is no need to buy higher speed ram, you won't see the difference, that ryzen cpu is one of the most valuables and powerful, and about the power supply, unless you want to do aggressive overclock it will work perfectly for the build, you don't need to expend more on it.
Also the SSD and HDD are good, have tested both by my self and will give you speed and will last long.
If you need any further advice just tell me xD
