The PCPartpicker website will tell you if there are any compatibility issues.
As far as I see though, you are fine.


Also holy hell that is expensive
Maybe go with a B450 board instead?
You don't have to pay $100 for windows 10, some websites will give Windows 10 Pro to you for $15

If you replace the motherboard with a cheaper ASRock B450 Pro4 ($80, and you will need to update the BIOS for it to be compatible with the 3700x which requires a 2000 or 1000 series chip) and get rid of the Win10 product key, that shaves $200 off the price. There are many more points that can be reduced, like for instance, the SSD. You can get a lower capacity SSD and get a higher capacity HDD for all your files.

Yeah I know, definitely not going to spend $100 on win10, I live in the uk so it's actually £100... Yeah ill get it off one of those websites. Yeah I don't know about HDD yet but ill consider it (super slow when compared to ssds). Ill also consider the MB, thanks for the recommendations though, I appreciate it.

If you want to, you can also buy 3000 or 3200 MHz ram and OC it to 3600, I don't know much about RAM OC'ing though.

There are much more things that can bring your build price down, I'd have to take a closer look when I have more time
 
Thats actually a great build and will make for a powerfull PC that should last a long time. Just a couple of changes and UK Prices... I have changed the SSD to a 1TB NVMe Crucial P1 SSD which is at a great price and very fast. Also the MSI RTX 2080 Super Gaming X Trio is slightly cheaper but is simply fantastic with great cooling and very quiet. I have the non Super version of the Gaming X Trio and I am more than impressed but there is hardly any real difference so buy the one you like.

Yes you can drop the RAM speed down but Ryzen will actually make use of faster ram. I have substituted the Corsair RGB Pro version but still at DDR4 3600 and it is not too bad on the price. Finally I know 650w PSU is good enough and the EVGA G3 is great but the price difference is only a little so go with the EVGA 750w G3 instead.
