Also I'm not sure about the motherboard and deciding between an MSI B450 Gaming Plus Max(ATX) or the Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro Wifi ((mini ITX)

The build will work fine as long as the motherboard BIOS has been updated new enough to use the 3rd gen Ryzen, you may want to ask the retailer if it's been updated before you buy.

Are you buying the ITX for the Wifi? There are some ATX boards that have Wifi or you could just use a adapter.
 
That is a good build but I have changed your SSD to a NVMe Crucial P1 which is much better and faster and updated the power supply to a much better one though you could drop down....

Double check you do not need a BIOS update on that motherboard to get you CPU to work...
