This is my second build and decided to copy most of my parts from this video: ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98ujnl1_hW0 )

I also liked this video because he went with an AMD processor and I've heard good things about those. Here's my semi adapted version: ( https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/vnHwnH )

I changed the motherboard because Ethernet is pretty hard to hook up at my place so I opted with a WiFi motherboard instead so I found one that fit my color scheme. Since I couldn't find a MicroATX motherboard with WiFi I had to go with an ATX case despite preferring micro ATX for the size.

If you read this far and are looking to answer please suggest anything I could add to improve and I'm also wondering if you know of any solid micro ATX motherboards with WiFi, Thanks in advance!
 
I don't see any glaring mistakes. I would suggest a 250 GB SAMSUNG 860 EVO instead of the linked SSD. The 128 GB SSD isn't really enough capacity for the system and more than a few games.

I would also suggest a better power supply. This Seasonic Focus 550 watt is better and just $5 more.

The reason for the 128 GB SSD is just to install windows on then have the hard drive to install everything else on including games.

Thanks for the power supply suggestion I will look into that. Lastly do you have any suggestions for another motherboard as I'm looking for a micro ATX motherboard with WiFi as I mentioned in the original post, Thanks.

Ryzen like fast ram, check the mobo`s qvl list and find some 3000mhz or 3200mhz ram, the newer chipset is more forgiving with ram than the earlier one.
