[SOLVED] Would these parts be good/compatible before I purchase?

Apr 20, 2020
So I am current trying to buy PC parts and these are the parts that I am currently looking into. Could a professional or someone with more knowledge than me check to see if the parts are compatible?

GPU : Gigabyte Radeon RX 550 XT OC 4G
CPU : Ryzen 5 3600x
Motherboard : Asus prime b450M-A
Case : Nzxt H510
Power Supply : Corsair CV series CV650 80+
HDD : Seagate 2TB
SSD : WD Blue SN550 500GB m.2 2280
RAM : Corsair vengeance RBG PRO 16 Gb (2x8) 3200 MHz
OS : Windows 10

Budget was 1300$ USD.
GPU = 5500XT, right?

Corsair's CV series PSUs aren't fantastic, but you won't have a very high power draw from this system. I can understand your choice here since PSU pricing is outrageous right now.

That mobo isn't guaranteed to ship with a Ryzen 3000 compatible BIOS. If it doesn't, you'll need to acquire a Ryzen 2000 series CPU to perform a BIOS update. Brike-and-mortar computer stores will oftentimes do this for a small fee. AMD has a CPU lending program for this purpose too, but from what I've heard, you might have to wait a while.


I'd probably look at something closer to this:
