Hello. First time building a pc and I want some opinions and if these parts are compatible.

CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz

GPU - GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING OC 6GB GDDR5 192-bit

MOBO - ASRock AB350 Pro4

RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 8GB DDR4 3000MHz CL16

Hard drive - WD Blue 1TB SATA-III 7200 RPM 64MB

PSU - Thermaltake Toughpower GX1, 80+ Gold, 500W
 
I agree. That setup is all compatable, however, the Thermaltake Toughpower is a bad power supply. It ranks in the last tier as a "Just don't buy" on the updated LTT PSU tier list. https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1045610-new-psu-tier-list/
I would upgrade to the PSU linked above if possible!
If on a major budget, this will work as well: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FdRFf7/corsair-cx-2017-550w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-cp-9020121-na Although it is not as efficient as either unit, it is much more reliable than the Thermaltake toughpower.
