Thats a pretty solid build ;)

There are a couple things I would change however:

RAM - go with 3000Mhz RAM over 2400Mhz, this will offer a significant increase in performance & Ryzen CPUs especially like fast RAM. No need to go over 3000Mhz.

Motherboard: is there a reason you want a mATX sized board, do you plan on building an mITX system or are you planning on building a standard sized ATX system?

PSU - I dont think you really need a 650W PSU & you could settle for a 550W which would work perfectly fine (even with an RX 570). Get the 650W if you plan on adding loads of other stuff or maybe getting a more powerful GPU in a year or so. If you dont plan on upgrading this PC for 3 years or so then theres no use getting a 650W.

RX 570 - great value GPU. Ive seen the 4GB models go for $130 on Newegg & they come with 2 free games. I would however suggest you get an 8GB version if your budget allows. As far as I know the Ryzen 1600 doesnt have on board graphics so keep this in mind.

All the best

Yeah that will run fine with that RAM, it just runs a bit better with quicker RAM, but not a massive difference so dont worry yourself about the RAM you already have.

When you plug a Graphics Card in it should automatically switch to running off that.

Ok, if youre going for a standard ATX (normal sized pc) build then get the B450 MSI Tomahawk. Its rated as one of the best B450 motherboards on the market & also $70 cheaper than the B450M Mortar Titanium. If you already have the B450M mortar motherboard its no issue as it can also fit in a normal sized pc case & all your other stuff will still work as normal.

With the 1600, the problem is you cant just install the 1600 without a graphics card as the system wont post. You need a graphics card or you need a CPU with on board graphics (2200g & 2400g). So you have 2 choices: (1) wait & save up some more money & buy the 1600 & rx 570 or (2) buy the 2200g & if you want to you can still get the rx 570 later. Once you have the 570 the pc will use the 570 graphics & not the 2200g.

Yes, your RAM will work fine with the 2200g. Your RAM will work fine with any Ryzen CPU you buy it doesnt matter which CPU you get.

The nice thing about getting the 2200g is that the on board graphics are pretty good & you can start playing games immediately. Just lower the quality settings to low & you will be able to play games
