Wow thanks. I do think I would cut down on some parts to fit at least a 1660s

Ah ok, I see what he did. He used Gigabytes board but he probably has a second gen Ryzen to update the BIOS to use the 3100/3300X. Also 3200mhz will work with the 3rd gen Ryzen but ideal is 3600/3700mhz for optimal performance. PSU is bare min but would work. His part list will work IF you can get that motherboard shipped with newer BIOS. SSD is lower end but is fine.

If your gaming at 1080P then anything from the 1650S/RX 580 or better is plenty for that resolution. I use a 1660S at 2560x1080P/75hz and it plays most games on Ultra/High settings without issue.
