Seagate Barracuda 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

Aerocool Cylon ATX Mid Tower Case

G.SKILL 32GB (2 x 16GB) Aegis DDR4 2400 (I already own the RAM i recently got it for my prebuilt surprisingly it works with the prebuild BUT its just a really bad pc for $75.76 )

You're good to go, though I'd have chosen an M.2 SSD to populate the board as opposed to getting a 2.5" SSD now and you forgot to add ram to your build. Your build will not POST without ram. Pick a DDR4-3200MHz dual channel kit to get the best out of Ryzen.

Also, how much time do we have to refine the system?

I can't speak for compatibility, but I can give you a suggestion. Do yourself a massive favor and make use of that PCIe M.2 slot you have on this motherboard. If you don't know about M.2 storage then you should definitely familiarize yourself with it. That's what you should be installing your OS on. SATA SSD moves like a paraplegic sloth in comparison. The difference is literally (this is the ceiling of course) 600 mb/s vs 4 gb/s! Almost six times faster. That's huge.
