Build
Can anyone please check over my PC build, and if I should change everything. I will only be playing games on 1080p and I will be upgrading the storage and CPU cooler at a later date.

Looks good yeah. Only problem might be the PSU, 550W is a bit on the low side for a 5700XT. You could save some money by going for a B450 board with wifi (HERE) but seems fine like it is.

Made a few changes. Faster WIFI, better quality PSU, faster ram, and less expensive storage.

Also, I would not suggest an x570 motherboard under $200. Most of the sub-$200 boards have poor VRM's and they will run hot.

An Asus TUF or Gigabyte.

Does this matter
  • Note:The ASRock X570 Steel Legend WiFi ax ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it.

Can anyone help me with this PC Build, I am wondering if this Ram is compatible with this motherboard, and if there is any other changes I should make to this build.

G-skill trident Z neo is made for Ryzen, so it should be compatible. After some thought, I would probably spend the little bit extra, and get a Seasonic PSU, instead.
