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 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

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?

Ok,thanks a lot for the confirmation. Like you recommended I will be going with the non-modular Seasonic S12III 550W just to save some money.
