The picture shows the new parts I am about to order. If someone could double check if all are compatible, I'd appreciate it.

I already have GTX 1080 GPU, RM 650X PSU and an SSD.


p.s. could someone recommend me a good GPU holder/brace? I'm not sure with what attachment mechanic should I get one.

Seems fine , you dont need thermal paste if you use the AMD stock cooler, it has pre applied thermal paste. This is a very good gpu holder from Coolermaster with strong magnets so it will stay in its place even if you move the case around. http://us.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/case/MasterCase-Series/universal-vga-holder.html
Yeah but I heard stock paste isn't the best and with custom paste I can win 1-2 degrees. Also we don't know how fresh it is.

Also how does the holder attach to the surface? Or it holds by sheer pressure between the chassis and GPU?

Yes i dont see the reason to pay 10 euros more for 1-2 degres. You can do this in 1 year or more that you will have to change the thermal paste.

After reading posts like:

and
I think I will apply my own paste. I am not a fan of messing with hardware and for my current CPU and 212 EVO I haven't reapplied paste since the installment which was like 6 years ago and my CPU is still idling at 25 C* and barely ever gets hot.

1 Year was an example i said or more it depends if you overclock the enviroment temprature and many other things for the time you will have to change thermal paste. In the threads you posted you also have to read the "there is no difference" answears. As i have used 4 different ryzen processors so far i used also the cooler with the pre applied thermal paste and with Artic MX-4 that is one of the top thermal paste compount. I really cant tell the difference to suggest you give 10 euros more. As i said dont buy the thermal paste only if you use the stock cooler otherwise you have to buy it.
