I am currently putting together a PC for my partner, mostly using previous parts I have on hand. Not looking for anything fancy or too worried about future proofing it. Would like to be able to play games like Destiny 2 with meh to okay graphics without horrendous FPS(50-60 should be fine). I currently have a GTX 970, ryzen 1600x and a 700w Silent pro cooler master PSU. I have some RAM chips but think they might be super old, Kingston kvr1333d3n9 8G. So that would leave me needing an SSD, motherboard and presumably RAM.
Is this feasible with these parts or would one of them be too much of a bottleneck and what suggestions do you wise folks have for the missing parts?

You can get a set of 2x8GB DDR4 3200 RAM and an inexpensive B550 board and give it a shot.
