I'm building a new PC, here are the specs that i would like:
Coolermaster 5 white case
MSI AMD AM4 Ryzen X370 GAMING PRO CARBON ATX Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 8 GB Single DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DIMM 288-Pin Memory *
Ryzen 5 1600
GTX 750 Ti (something like that, though i am going to upgrade to a GTX 1060 later this year)

* I can change this, i prefer it would be changed, I would change it myself but I'm not that good with ram or anything really.

Thanks

Could you give us the make and model of your power supply? 500w PSU includes a few hundred different models all of different qualities,ratings, amps and rails, etc.

The ram is fine & actually will run at 2666mhz easily (I have a 16 GB kit of the same myself)

You would be far better with a twin stick kit mate , dual channel & ram speed make a big difference to ryzens general performance.

You could drop that board to one of the decent b350s to save money & try & get a 2x8gb kit into the build.

The x chipset isn't going to offer you anything worth bothering about over a b350 board IMO.

As asked , what 500w PSU exactly ??

As long as its a 'real' 500w unit - & I'll even count the cheap corsairs & the evga b1 in this instance - its going to be enough easily.
