Psu is ok since you'll never OC that cpu, which is a shame on a Ryzen. The A320 chipsets don't allow OC. I'd suggest a B450 mobo and set that cpu free. The newer boards also have better ability and usually more nice things like 3 or 4 system fan headers, not just the one. 8Gb of ram will be limiting. Many newer games are pushing system ram limits past 6Gb and when you add in windows needs it goes beyond the size of the ram. This puts ram needs into windows pagefile, using storage as extra ram. Fps then goes in the toilet and you get stuttering pauses even freezes as the storage is exponentially slower than ram. So 16Gb is highly recommended for gaming usage, although 8Gb is tolerable if using pagefile on SSD.

Would a 620 W, plus bronze seasonic be enough for OC?
