[SOLVED] Building a new PC - any recommendations?

Hey everyone, my old PC is quite outdated and i'm thinking of building a new one.

Here are the parts I've chosen:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X with Wraith Prism
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz CL16 DDR4
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 UD Motherboard
PSU: Corsair RM850 Gold 850W Power Supply
Case: Cooler Master MasterCase H500P Mesh Case White
GPU: (Already own a relatively new Sapphire RX 580 8gb Nitro+, so I will be using this)
SSD: ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro M.2 NVMe SSD 512GB

If you could make any suggestions/recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone know if I will have to do a BIOS update to support the CPU - i've read some Ryzen CPUs need to have their motherboard BIOS updated to support them?

*Edit - I've read the Wraith Prism cooler is alright, would it be worth buying an aftermarket CPU cooler?

Its always worth buying aftermarket CPU cooler with a good CPU.
But try with the Wraith (it seems decent) for now and see if you're satisfied.
X570 supports Ryzen 7 3700 out of the box!
For me its quite good Build... I don't know what brands PSU you have around you, but i would always go with Seasonic ( if its expensive around you, 600W will be plenty, if you have more money buy bigger).

Thanks for the advice, i'm glad the x570 supports Ryzen out of the box. That saves me some time.
I might look into a cheaper PSU.
