Hello. I am picking parts for my future PC and I've already picked a motherboard and a cpu, the motherboard being "ASUS TUF B450M-PRO GAMING" and the CPU being "AMD Ryzen 5 3600"(not X).
This motherboard has 24 + 8 pin power to the motherboard and the CPU, and I want to know if the CPU is compatible that way. Is there any incompatibilities between the motherboard and the CPU at all?(except BIOS) Can I use GTX 1660Ti with this motherboard? What PSU(500-600W) would you recommend for these parts?

Your CPU will have no issues getting power with a motherboard with those connectors.
A 1660ti will work fine with that combo, although a GTX1660 super will offer simmilar performance for less money.

Also, just a note, your motherboard may need a BIOS update prior to using a 3600/x

This may require you to request an older CPU from AMD in order to boot the system and update bios.
Well, I am not sure this will be a problem, but do you have any recommendations on motherboards that supports the CPU, GPU and PSU out of the box, without needing to update bios or something else?

Any b450 boards with “MAX” in their names will work with zen 2 out of the box. Best option imo is the b450 tomahawk MAX
