Build Advice buying pc parts

Im kinda new to building pc Components, so i got this build together hopefully everything is good, i realize that i have only 8gb ram, im on a kinda budget so im buying the same model later with a better SSD at the same time, are these Components good to go?
( i already have a PSU seasonic 520W and Rx 580 )

Looks ok but be aware buying another 8gb later even if exact same make and model is not guaranteed to work without issues. Only RAM bought as a matched kit is guaranteed to work together. Personally I’d hold off until you can budget for a 2x8gb kit. Also 1x8gb will only run single channel and will significantly impact performance over a dual channel setup.

What if i asked people that has two of the same model if it's working? The motherboard is compatible with the model it shouldn't be a problem putting two of the same model i think.

It doesn't matter. It may work. It may not. It's entirely up to the RAM modules you get as to whether they're compatible with each other. Drop the SSD for now and get the 2x8GB RAM kit.

Drop the ssd and get a ram kit got it, i have a 1tb hdd but it's kinda old, u sure dropping the ssd won't slow the pc much?

Yes, it will slow it down some, but I'd rather that than waste money on incompatible RAM.

Should i drop the r5 3600 and get the r5 2600?
There's a 15-20% difference and 80$ too, could 3600 bottleneck my gpu too? Im confused on what to get

You're going to want to get case fans as well as a third party CPU cooler when you decide to overclock. The rest of the build looks fine.

i guess i'll build the pc without overcloacking the cpu until i get the fans and the ssd..,
how many case fans do i need ? is one 120mm on the back good enough?

Impossible for me to say as there is no way to tell how well your CPU will overclock (if at all). Also don't know your environment. Best advice I could give would be to start with one intake and one exhaust. When you start your over-clock, monitor your temps (you should be doing this anyway). If they reach the max close to max operating temp, add another fan until adding fans doesn't moderate the temperature any longer.

I would drop the 3600 and go with a 2600 B450 combo, just to get the ssd. Then in the future you'll have a plethora of next and last gen processors to upgrade to should you decide you need more processing performance. It's all about having an over all well balanced computer and the load times on the HDD will be garbage. The R5 2600 isn't as good as the 3600? Of course, but the 2600 is no slouch by any means and will allow you to do most of anything from playing games on ultra to streaming and video editing with ease.

I made up my mind, im getting the R5 3600 just to be able to just upgrade my gpu only in the future not both cpu and gpu.

I think amd has a program for overclocking where i can see the temps and voltage and everything, I'll overclock it on there but only after i get the case fans

I wasn't imlying you'd have to upgrade the 2600. Just that you have the option if necessary in the future. I hope you're going to consider choosing a ssd over hdd.
Ofcourse i would want a ssd over hdd i just need time after i get everything then buy the a samsung 860 evo 500gb ssd
