Question Is my parts list any good?

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/HDRfDx

I already have a cooler master heatsink for my cpu, a 500 gb ssd, and two extra fans from a previous build.
My 2 cents, your build is fine and capable if you choose to keep it. I made some changes based on slight performance and personal preference. I’ll start with the power supply, I changed to the Seasonic as I think they are the best and it saved you $5. Changed your hard drive to a NVME drive that’s cheaper and has much faster capability. RAM for Ryzen 3 needs to be 3600 to get the best performance so it upped the price a bit and then I evened it back out with the motherboard. The x470 will need a bios update to run a ryzen 3600. The b450 max from MSI is ready without a bios update and is plenty capable for a ryzen 3600.

Are there any other boards that have more 3.0 usbs and possibly a better aesthetic without a bios update at the same price range of the tomahawk?

If you can stretch the budget, this one will handle and Ryzen 3000 and 4000 when they come out and last you for a good while.

Thank you for all your help, I’m brand new to building so this is a lot of help. I really debated on the gigabyte x570 but I think the tomahawk overall would be a better purchase. Would the gigabyte actually be worth the extra 90+ dollars?

Only if you think you’ll want to replace the cpu in the next couple years with a high end 3000 or 4000 series
