It should be fine, you will see no bottleneck with either CPU or GPU even with AAA titles like Assassin's creed or cyberpunk.
There always is a bottleneck, the question is whether or not it happens at a frame rate you can live with.

A GPU bottleneck can always be relieved by lowering details until you reach the minimum details and resolution you are willing to play at, so GPU bottlenecks are a mostly non-issue to me.

CPU bottlenecks are more annoying since games rarely have much in the way of settings to really help with those beyond draw distance. The Ryzen 1600 isn't a particularly strong CPU and will likely run into some difficulties every now and then in more CPU-intensive games. Even high-end CPUs get occasional FPS dips for various reasons such as a bunch of things happening at the same time. It all depends on OP's sensitivity to the frequency and severity of those in whatever games he plays.

The motherboard does little more than provide the wiring between the PCIe slot and CPU and slot power. Practically any GPU will work in any PCIe slot it can fit into. The motherboard has next to no impact on GPU performance as long as the CPU and wiring to the PCIe slot provide sufficient bandwidth.
