So I'm planning on building a PC in a month with an i5 11400, RX 6600 and an MSI H510 A PRO. I was wondering if the H510 would be capable for everyday tasks, because it is an entry level board.
My usage plans-
7 hours of online class and work a day for 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
2 hours of gaming a day for 2 days a week (Saturday and Sundays). The games I'm planning to play are Fortnite, Valorant and the Tomb Raider trilogy.
PC Specs-
i5 11400
8gb 3200 mhz
512GB crucial p1 m.2 SSd
Gigabyte P550B PSU (550W, 80+ Bronze)
Btw, before you suggest me to upgrade to a B560 motherboard, please let me know if the H510 is good enough.

Me myself would like to have some cooling on the vrm's.

Differences between chipsets,

mostly i/o = how many usbports of what specs, pcie lanes that can be used.
and how much ram = 2 or 4 dimms

It's all blue highlighted.
For now. I'm going with a single 8gb ram stick. I won't need that many usb ports either, just 2 for keyboard and mouse. As for vrm, does the i5 11400 take in that much power to generate high temps? I saw some dude on youtube building a pc with an i5 10400, H410 and an rtx 3070, so based on that, I was wondering if my config would work.
