I have designed a custom parts list according to my budget on the website which I will link at the bottom. The question is: is this a usable set of parts?
I have researched slightly and the passive cooler is supposed to be very good, but I don't know if it'll be enough. In addition to this, will it even fit in the case?
If anyone could let me know the problems with this setup, please let me know. Thanks!

It uses an old CPU which is beaten by current low end ones...
Here's my edited list, similar price, but should be better in performing:

I removed the CPU, cooler, thermal paste and GPU for the Ryzen 2400g, it has an integrated GPU that matches the RX 550, and the stock cooler and paste are good for the CPU. O wouldn't recommend passive cooling, even with your original choice of CPU.

As for the RAM, I just changed it out for some RAM at a speed of 3000MHz, which is generally recommended as the minimum for Ryzen.

Lastly, that PSU is likely to blow up on you. I changed it with a Corsair VS. Now, I wouldn't recommend this one either usually, but for a system like yours it would be just fine... It is only a problem on higher end gaming PCs. PCPartPicker doesn't register it as available, so here is the link to that: Corsair VS550 550 W Active PFC 80 PLUS Certified Power Supply Unit - Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B078XXNC3J/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_DcVwDbN46JYY3

If I was you, I would have gotten the r5 2600x and a rx570 4gb instead. My pc is 600$ and it's perfect for AAA titles a d this is the hardware I use. However; beware of the rx560; it's terrible for 1080p.

Thank you very much! I'll order these parts and hope that all goes to plan.
Again, thanks for this solution!
