I am building a new PC as my old is kinda ripped off. I have chosen some parts for my new build but I am just not sure if all of them are compatible with each other or not. So I wanted to ask the community about what they think regarding this as who can be a better advisor. Following is the list of components I chose, please help me to get more info on their compatibility with each other:

Mobo: Gigabyte B450M (MicroATX)
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with stock cooler fan.
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 650 (From my existing PC)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000
Power Supply: iBall Marathon 500W (A cheap one)
Storage: WD Green 240 GB and Seagate Barracuda 500 GB
Case: Ant Esports ICE-200TG (https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07TJCNK2G)

A nudge in the right direction would really help me to complete this build.

Budget?

Country?

Your part choices aren't very good due to the outdated GPU & cheap PSU.

I am pretty tight on budget so I have to use my old GPU. The PSU however is because my old one was burnt and I already bought a new one and so I can't buy another right now.

I am from India. And my budget is 35k Indian Rupees which exclude the GPU and the PSU

I'd return the PSU if possible or at the very least sell it. Your other one probably burnt out because it was a junk unit as well.

Anyways the Vega 11 iGPU on the 3400G is a little bit better then the GTX 650. Also I'm aware that buying two sticks isn't advisable however the 2x8gb kits would put you above the budget more then this and with the iGPU you really want 16gb of memory. Disregard the CPU/MB error as the MSI MAX boards are already updated to work with Ryzen 3rd gen.

This would be the "cheapest" PSU I'd trust with a GPU.

Why can't I use the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with MSI B450M? I would love to have a better CPU and a dedicated GPU separately. So if I use GTX 650, it would be much better than the 3400G integrated GPU.
