Hey,

So I'm about to build my first pc. My technical knowledge is not bad, but not that great either. I was putting together this build and wondering if it will work in this setup:

(SSD not included cause Im using old SATA drives for now. Also, I know the new GPUs are basically impossible to get rn but I wanna at least try to get one for a reasonable price.)

I have 2 questions in particular:

1. on pcpartpicker.com it tells me that the B550 motherboards might have an issue with the new ryzen CPUs. Can anyone confirm that? Do I really need another CPU to perform a BIOS update?

2. Will the 550w PSU be sufficient? It should be by the numbers, but should I play safe and get a higher watt PSU?

The motherboard, if it has BIOS flash it wont be a problem as you can flash to the relevant BIOS without a cpu but I think you'll need a beefier PSU as the recommended for your GPU is 750w.
