Hello everyone, I never built a pc before and I need help checking the compatibility of my components and maybe changing something if there is better on the market at the same price.
I want a white and pink setup and the more rgb, the better!
The only disclaimer is that I have to buy everything on amazon.it instead of amazon.com, so the prices may change, I specified them on amazon.it after the links)

For now my build is:

---Motherboard (I already have it, paid 150$): ASUS ROG STRIX B550-A https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-ROG-Strix-Gaming-Motherboard/dp/B08F9VP2RC/ref=sr_1_1?crid=UZVNFJOPESP0&keywords=asus+rog+strix+b550&qid=1662134136&sprefix=asus+rog+strix+b550,aps,184&sr=8-1

---CPU: It depends on the price I can find it, between:
Ryzen 5 5600x https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-5600X-12-Thread-Processor/dp/B08166SLDF/ref=sr_1_3?crid=239P0VHCJNXN2&keywords=ryzen+5+5600x&qid=1662134361&sprefix=RYZEN+5,aps,180&sr=8-3 (it costs around 240$ where I have to buy it)
Ryzen 5 5600g https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-5600G-12-Thread-Processor/dp/B092L9GF5N/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3SUN4BRALG60B&keywords=ryzen+5+5600g&qid=1662134439&sprefix=ryzen+5+5600,aps,182&sr=8-3 (it costs around 200$ where I have to buy it)
Both have the cpu cooler included.

---GPU: ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Overclocked-Dual-Fan-DisplayPort-DUAL-RTX2060-O6G-EVO/dp/B07R18TH1X/ref=sr_1_1?crid=29317O9VDSVHF&keywords=geforce+rtx+2060+asus&qid=1662134492&sprefix=geforce+rtx+2060+asu,aps,179&sr=8-1 (I know it's not the best but at the moment, for the games I play, I think I'm happy with it, and it costs around 330$ where I have to buy it)

---RAM: Corsair Vengeance PRO RGB 2x8gb https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-Vengeance-3200MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B07D5SN1ZK/ref=sr_1_12_sspa?crid=148JG2XFXKVKZ&keywords=CORSAIR+VENGEANCE+RGB+PRO+16GB&qid=1662134790&sprefix=corsair+vengeance+rgb+pro+16gb,aps,187&sr=8-12-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyNU81MUs2TzNRM1pVJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMjczNDc4MVhJQTAwOU5FU0FYSSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDAxNDE5MU5JVlVGUUFCRlZMNCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX210ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= (it costs around 88$ where I have to buy it)

---SSD: Crucial P2 https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-NAND-NVMe-PCIe-2400MB/dp/B089DNM8LR/ref=sr_1_3?crid=20UY9N8M5TH1N&keywords=crucial+p2+1tb&qid=1662134904&sprefix=crucial+p2+1tb,aps,180&sr=8-3 (it costs around 83$ where I have to buy it)

---Case: Noua Smash s10 white ATX (actually I can't find it on amazon.com, but it costs around 69.90$)

---Power supply: Corsair CX650M 80plus bronze https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CX650M-Modular-Supply-Bronze/dp/B093NTQJSF/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1JDCFZUOEOAKE&keywords=corsair+cx650m+80+plus+bronze&qid=1662135398&sprefix=corsair+c650m+80+plus+bronze,aps,146&sr=8-2 (it costs around 75$ where I want to buy it)

I checked the compatibility on PcPartPicker and it says as a blue note:
"The Asus ROG STRIX B550-A GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair CV 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it." and I actually don't know what it means.
Should I change my power supply or it doesn't matter? I found this: https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-MWE-Bronze-Stromversorgung/dp/B0812BM3YY/ref=sr_1_2?crid=25IPP2L07G9QM&keywords=cooler+master+700w+bronze&qid=1662136359&sprefix=cooler+master+700w+bronz,aps,162&sr=8-2 which on amazon.it is cheaper, around 57.50$ but I don't know if it's good.

Thank you for your time and I rely on you 🙏
 
You might consider the Ryzen 5 5600. From what I've seen it's pretty close. I bought a 5600x used from ebay and it's fine, but from what I'm reading, the difference between the 5600 and 5600x is very small. Don't get the 5600g though. It's a bit slower than either of those, as they are including integrated graphics which you won't need since you have a graphics card.

Swap out the 2060 for the RX 6600. That would be closer to the 3060 for performance and give you a little extra vram. I've got a 6700xt and am happy with it, though I had a chance to play with a 6600xt which was plenty fast. The 6600 isn't far behind it.

With the money saved on those items, I'd suggest this. I've got the 850 watt version and am pretty happy with it.
