Get a 450/470 Board with a Gen 2 Ryzen, you will need a Gen 1 CPU to upgrade the Mobo for 2000 Ryzen CPU.
If possible go up to 3000 Mhz Ram because Ryzen system are better with better Rams.

Yea it will take the 2nd Gen, but you need to put in a Gen1 CPU and update the bios before you can use the 2nd Gen :)
And on RAM use always the same rams, dont go 2 differents.
Try to get some rams with samsung b-dies, here's a list.

Samsung b-dies

They're much more compatible with ryzen cpu's.

Keep that Corsair, no need to buy expensive new rams when you have a kit.
But i would really suggest you anyways a 450/470 board, even when the seller say they're updated for second gen.
It gives you the option to upgrade until 2020 with new ryzen cpu's just for few bucks more.
btw i wouldn't upgrade that 1050 to a 1050Ti, just wait a while and try to get some cheap 1060 6 GB when you hit a good offer. or the RX 570 MSI Armor, quite powerful for a low budget card.
