First, you don't "buy" parts from PCPartpicker. You buy them from individual retailers. PCPP only links you to those retailers and then they get a referral fee if you click through to those retailers and actually make a purchase so in reality it has nothing to do with PCPP and is strictly a matter of whether the retailer itself is reliable. Since PCPP mostly uses Amazon, Newegg, B&H Photo, Adorama and PC outlet, and those sites are well known and safe, then the shorter answer would be yes.

As far as the hardware goes, you could probably shave off a little bit by going with 3200mhz memory, which isn't going to make a big difference in performance really anyhow. Also, there are likely less expensive but still suitable options for the case, power supply and motherboard but if you require that these parts be white or mostly white then your choices are going to be limited and you may have to simply accept the fact that paying a premium to get primarily white hardware may be a foregone conclusion without greatly lowering the quality expectations.

The build actually looks fine as is.

You guys have CLEARLY missed the point. Yes, some of those items aren't even remotely necessary, but if you are going to find suitable alternatives, you should FIRST determine that he didn't choose X570 for the purpose of having PCIe 4.0, which you didn't bother to do, and that whatever it is you are recommending is at least a moderately good fit for the white color scheme he wanted, since most of those parts are at least partially white if not entirely white. Not so easy to find cheaper alternatives when trying to source white hardware.

I agree, as a budget option. They lack some features found on many other boards but often some of those features are features that the average person either doesn't care about or would never use anyhow, so, it's really a matter of listing out what you HAVE to have on the board and then eliminating anything that doesn't have that until you find the least expensive board that has everything you desire, has the right color scheme AND has decent reviews. If it has poor VRMs or other negatives, based on reviews, then it really doesn't matter what it has it won't be a good choice.

Please export your pcpartpicker build, and post a link to it here. Makes it easier to visually see what you are looking at, and make suggestions.
