Thanks

Upgraded the memory to DDR4-3000. Ryzen likes fast memory, it sets the speed at which the CCX clusters communicate. Basically the CPU is made of two CPU modules.

Not much reason to get the R5-2600X over the R5-2600, though, you could save about $15 that way. A simple BIOS change away from being as fast.

Added an adequate case. I would like to see one more fan, but since this is relatively light, you can just move one of the fron fans to the rear. Or look at a slightly more expensive case to your tastes.

Or plenty enough budget to add in your hard drive if you take the R5-2600.

2600X has a better stock cooler (Wraith Spire > Wraith Stealth) than the 2600. All you need to do so it auto-overclocks even better is to offset the CPU core voltage by a little (-50mV should work without thinking).
✔ for Eximo's list. (keep in mind 480GB will be barely enough just for a game library)
