Question Will These Componets Work?

Nov 18, 2021
I want to build my 1st computer and I need advice as to the components that I have selected are compatible.
  1. Antec NX260 mid-tower case
  2. ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Pro AM4 Zen3 Ryzen 5000 ATX motherboard (PCIe 4.0 2.5 Gb LAN, BIOS
  3. AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 12- Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler
  4. upHere 120mm RGB Case Fan (6 Pak)
5.Crucial MX500 1TB NAND SATA 2.5 inch SSD
6.TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan Z DD$ 16GB Kit (2x8GB) 3200MHZ

Does the ASUS board have built-in wi-fi or would I need to add a card?
Am I missing anything that will be needed to run this system besides an operating system? (Windows 10/11) :unsure:

P.S. I'm trying to put together a sub $800 system

WiFi, and RGB CPU cooler, Memory, and three included case fans. 1TB NVMe SSD rather than 2.5" And a power supply for any mid-range GPU you might be able to get ahold of.

Hard to recommend Ryzen 3000 when Intel's 11th gen are at very low prices.

I have considered buying a XPS computer from Dell since the computers that I have (5). The one that I looked at with 16GB of ram and 6GB video card would run me about $1300. I have had pretty good luck with their systems but I wonder if their computers can be upgraded easily and other than the video card I have no idea what parts, especially, the motherboard they use. Plus I would lose the fun of building my own!
Try this ...
ASUS PRIME B560M-A $109.99
Intel Core i5-10400F $149.99

DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Air Cooler $18.99
TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4 3200MHz 16GB Kit (2x8GB) CL16 $50.99

Total: $330

Review of that cpu with benchmarks.
