So after months of researching the latest parts and deciding what I want. I’ve finally picked out the parts I want and will be ready to order in about 2 weeks.
Can anyone just have a look at the parts I’ve picked to confirm I’m not making any big mistakes or wasting my money.

Thankyou
case is good but u must buy better psu and buy good cpu cooler...add extra fans on case and u will be fine...
 
So after some more searching have gone with this. Is this a good power supply?

I see no issues at all. The Corsair TXM550 PSU is fine and has plenty of power. You may want a quieter CPU cooler than stock AMD but it's not absolutely necessary. If you use a B550 board you'd be able to upgrade to Zen 3 CPU in a few years, otherwise the board you picked is fine for that build. Why did you remove the NVME drive? You really should have one.

Thanks for the reply. Think I will stick with the TXM550. I have considered getting a b550 but they’re still pretty expensive in the UK and I need WiFi so the msi b450 mobo seems like a good deal right now. I have decided to remove the nVme drive and upgrade to a 1660 super and just get it at a later date. This will be my first gaming pc so I really want to get as much power as possible in my initial build while still having plenty of room for upgrades

It's up to you but I'd downgrade the case a little to get the NVME drive. Here's an idea-

I have considered it many times but I’m really in love with the P400A and really can’t think where else to save money. NVME drive will probably be my first upgrade. Probably for Christmas
You could get the NVME drive now and add the WD drive later as extra storage. The NVME I listed is 500GB. It would be a lot easier now, than reloading windows and apps on the NVME later. Just saying. Up to you. When you get the WD drive later on all you do is plug it in and you're done.

Hadn’t actually considered this. That might be what I end up doing. As I don’t think I’d fill up the 500gb before I can afford to buy a HDD. Thankyou
