Do you have a contingency plan if the mobo doesn't ship with a Ryzen 3000 compatible BIOS and requires a 1st or 2nd gen Ryzen CPU to update it? You can often pay a brick-and-mortar store to do the update for you.

MSI's "max" series board are guaranteed to ship with a Ryzen 3000 compatible BIOS.

I'd add that you should look at 3200mhz RAM at least for that processor, 3600mhz ideally. Perhaps drop the PSU to a 500-550w version, though it doesn't state what brand?

What is the system for? it seems a little processor expensive/GPU inexpensive for gaming...
