Hey guys I will be building my first ever PC very soon and I have selected all the parts I'd like to go with.
Here is the list-

Ryzen 5 2600
Sapphire RX 5700
MSI B450 Tomahawk
EVGA 600W 80+ BR ( Non- modular)
G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB (2x8) 3200MHz (F4-3200C16D-16GVKB )
Kingston A400 SSD 480GB
Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 5 RGB

I just want a final approval from you experienced PC builders if all of the components are compatible with each other. I know it may sound stupid but I don't want my first build to go wrong. Any replies will be appreciated and thanks!

Yes that all looks good. If your budget allows it, you could go with a better PSU, such as SeaSonic Focus Plus Gold 550w. This will save your electricity bill, and if the PSU breaks, maybe your components too.

Thanks for your reply. I don't mind going with a different PSU but in AMD's website the recommended power for the RX 5700 is 600w. Do you think a 550w is enough for my build? Then I will surely go with it. Lastly, I wanted to know if my B450 Tomahawk will be compatible with with the RX 5700 because the 5700 hundred is PCI-E 4th Gen I believe so will it function properly with the Tomahawk's PCI-E 3rd Gen x16?

Yes the 550w one will be enough. Overclocked, the RX5700 will use 200w on the 12v rail, while the Ryzen overclocked will use 100w max. This is a total of 300w from the main power drainers. The SeaSonic Focus Plus Gold 550w has a max of 540w on the 12v
