Hi All! Noob here :) I'll be receiving these parts probably by next month and I really need your expert opinion if there are things I need to look out for or if there are parts which are incompatible. These are the best (?) I could find on my humble budget :
Mobo : MSI Mortar Max B450
Proc : Ryzen 5 2600
GPU : Sapphire Pulse RX570 (used)
PSU : Corsair CV550
SSD : Kingston 120 GB SSD
HDD : Seagate 1 TB HDD
RAM : Team Group Elite 8 GB 3200 MhZ
Case : I think it's a Fantech Pulse CG71

Also wanna know if the PSU is okay with the other components, wattage, pins and all. Your help is very much appreciated.

The only decent version of the Corsair CV line is the 650W one. Overall I would get a different PSU and spend the extra money to get a singular 1TB SSD rather than the SSD + HDD. For RAM make sure you get a 2x4 GB kit. What is your total budget for this build.

Around 660-700$. Thanks! Will really consider that. The reason I'll be choosing 1x8 GB RAM (for now) is if I have extra funds, I'll go with 2x8 GB.
Follow up question if you don't mind, which should I pick, Corsair CV650 vs Thermaltake Smart RGB 600W APFC?

Thanks again!

Thanks for the list of suggested PSUs! So far I was only able to browse the tier list but I guess that was for a different case..

RAM is a DDR4
 
This is at the top of your price range but will be better for gaming now, has a better motherboard, and can have the CPU upgraded later.

The PSU is also far better than the CV or Thermaltake Smart Series.

You could do an mATX build with that budget. Intel i3 with basic motherboard and GTX 1660 Super.
