Hi, so I'm building a new PC and I have never done it before and just wanted to make sure the parts I have are okay and make sure there's no problem. I appreciate your time.

I would get different RAM, that Corsair Kit was Not made for use with AMD Ryzen systems.
Apparently some LPX kits are suitable for AMD use, but Corsair doesn't really mark them specifically as such on the packaging.
There is some information on their website, but the key thing to look for, is a Z in the model name, such as CMK16GX4M2Z5000C18.
That means the kit should work with AMD. If you get a kit without the Z in the model name, it might not work.

Here are a few of the AMD Optimized "Z" kits I have seen:
CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16
CMK16GX4M2Z3466C16
CMK16GX4M2Z3600C14
CMK32GX4M2Z3600C18
That kit is: CMW16GX4M2C3200C16 (No Z)

You could look here for a kit that is compatible with that MB and CPU:
RAM Configurator-G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd.

That PSU is probably OK but,
I'd look for a PSU from Tier A here:

A Corsair RM750x or Seasonic Focus GX (or PLUS) 750 similar should work well for you.

Okay so I got some new RAM how is this:

Those should both work well for you.
I have that same RAM kit in my Ryzen 5 2600 rig and I have the Corsair RM650 in my 3700x rig and they work well for me.

And Just FYI,
The stock cooler is only OK.
It will work fine but may get a bit loud.
I'd consider looking at some aftermarket coolers so you get the best possible performance out of that 5600x.
