I changed the power supply as the one you chose is poor quality just a lesson don't skimp on the PSU please the horror stories about bad quality PSUs is ridiculous, I upgraded your GPU to a 1660 as that's a bit better than the 1650.

EDIT: I shall add that, depending on where you get Windows from, it's going to add about 90(OEM) - 135€(direct from Microsoft) to the current total above.

wow thanks all for the answers ! I've clearly didn't think too much on the first list...
I've undertand that psu is more important than I innitially thought , I've also decided to only have one 500gb ssd since I don't have a lot of data and I can always add more in the future.
I do have 2 question for the moment;
-Will I feel the diffence between a 3200Mhz Ram from a 3000Mhz ram?
-I know this could sound stupid but how important is the Mortherboard? Because I was planning to build everything in a m-Atx motherboard in order to save so money , but heres my quesiton, do smaller motherboard are worse than normal size Atx boards? Because for the moment I was planning on going with the ASUS PRIME B450M-A ( the price is really good but if this motherboard will hurt me in the long-run I'd better upgrade it right now ). So should I get a Atx board or a m-ATX one ?
AGAINNNNN thanks a lot for the help , for the moment my configuration looks like that , I'm all hear on the ssd as I dont need much room , and I'm all hears on MOTHERBOARD as I'm a noob ahhaha thanks guys!
Other than the motherboard how I am looking ?

1)No
2)Motherboards are about features.
-E-ATX mobos have the most features/expandability, but don't fit in a large number of cases. The average user doesn't really need one of these.
-M-ATX/M-ITX boards are pretty barebones, and usually consist of: 2 slots of ram(sometimes capped to 32GBs), a few sata ports, and 1x pcie x16 slot.
-If you intend to add things later on - sound cards, network cards, M.2 or add-in storage card, or even another gpu - then go with the standard ATX.

yeahh you are right!! I'll go with a ATX motherboard , any suggestion ? Everyone seems to choose b450 motherboards , Asus prime B450 plus and gigabyte B450 aorus seems affordable.
Thanks for the answer!
