I was planning to build a pc and i have come up with a lisy of what parts i'm gonna buy just wanted an expert review on it
Mobo : rog strix b450-f
Cpu : ryzen 5 2600x
Gpu : asus gtx 1060 6gb(or gigabyte?)
Ram : tridentz 2400mhz 2x8 ddr4
Psu : rosewill photon 80+ gold 550w
Now the questions
1. Is the power supply enough?
2. Should i change the ram?
3. Would it be ok if i went with the ryzen 5 1600 instead? What would i be missing out?
4. Will this build fit into a cooler master q300l?

I am sorry for all the questions this is my first pc build and I seriously am a heavy noob in this all the help is much appreciated

1. Yes.
2. Yes, Ryzen performs better with faster memory so 3000 or 3200 is preferred.
3. The 1600 would be fine if it saves you a considerable amount of money, could be a good placeholder until 3rd Gen is released. Also you could use those savings to invest into the 2060 instead of 1060.
4. It should be fine, just make sure the GPU is under 360mm and if you get a aftermarket CPU cooler that it is under 159mm.

Thanks for the reply... when i saw the specs of the mobo it supports only upto 2666 mhz on dual channel.
So wouldn't buying 3200 mhz ram be pointless.... wouldn't it get bottlenecked?

Mobo : rog strix b450-f You could do better with a B450 Gaming K4 around the same price
Cpu : ryzen 5 2600x You could do better with a Ryzen 7 1700 around the same price
Gpu : asus gtx 1060 6gb(or gigabyte?) You could do better with a 580 8Gb from PowerColor at 159$ or the premium Red Devil around the same price
Ram : tridentz 2400mhz 2x8 ddr4 Get the 3000Mhz rated
Psu : rosewill photon 80+ gold 550w its ok, but would get Seasonic or XFX

No, that motherboard does support up to 3200mhz, I know because I have the exact same motherboard. Memory needs to be placed in slots A2/B2 then enable DOCP in the BIOS and it'll run at 3200mhz.
