Ok so im building my first pc this september so i wanted to know if i should change anything or leave it be.

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
GPU: GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC 6G (Gigabyte) or MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB GDDR6 Ventus XS OC (I can get them for same price so i was wondering MSI or Gigabyte)
RAM: 2x CORSAIR 8GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz CL16
MOBO: B450 TOMAHAWK
SSD: CRUCIAL 500GB MX500 M.2
PSU: EVGA B1 600W
So i was wondering about the GPU question i said, is motherboard going to be ok and will it support overclocking to 3.9 or 4 (if not whats the cheapest solution so i can do it in future), is SSD ok, is PSU enough and can it take overclocking? I already have good cooler for overclocking and case with 3 fans so thats good.

Thanks!

I would go with a better PSU. EVGA makes some good PSUs, but the B1 is not very good. I would suggest getting a quality 550 watt PSU from Corsiar, or Seasonic. A malfunction in the PSU can damage your hardware, so you want a good one.

Additionally, I would look at the AMD 3600 if you can afford it. They are a pretty good price and have a decent bump over the 2600.

Here is a base seasonic model that would be the starting point.
