looks fine save the RAM. its a bit slow look to 3600mhz modules for the ryzen 3 series.
that board is Ryzen 3 ready out of the box, disregard the PCPP warning about an update, the MAX means the update has already been installed on MSI boards.

Thank you so much.
Just make sure your RAM is in the memory compatibility list of your motherboard otherwise XMP speed might not work which is the case of many users here.

Mind giving me a suggestion? I don't quite get what you mean
https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450-TOMAHAWK-MAX/#support-mem-19
this is the memory QVL the Qualified vendors list. these modules have been factory tested to work at the listed speeds and voltages.
they ARE NOT, repeat ARE NOT the only modules that will work with the board, only a list of what MSI had on hand to test with. the length of the list ensures broad compatibility.
RAM speeds of 3000 are the suggested speeds for ryzen 1 CPU's, the ryzen 2 chips like 3200, and ryzen 3 3600. all ryzen CPUs love all the bandwidth you can give them and the modules you selected are slow in comparison to what the CPU can use, in this case 3600 and above. some modules on the list have been tested to over 4200mhz.
