https://be.pcpartpicker.com/list/gT2CNQ It would be my first ever PC (a gaming PC thats usable) and my first ever build. Just need to know if all parts are good and will last me for awhile. I want to stay into a 500-550 euro budget. Leave ur comments down below thanks.
Edit: also I want to maybe upgrade it in the future for a ryzen 5 and a better gpu so is that also possible?
Edit 2: sorry, wrong link xD its now edited

If you don't mind overclocking you can save some money by going with the 1200 @€68.89 instead of the 2200G.
i mean I talked with someone and they said I should rather go with the 2200g than 1200 cuz its better and rather use 4gb rx570 than the 8gb one cuz theyre similar. Do u think I should get a cheaper ram and get the 550 psu or cheap out other part? cuz I got to buy 2 fans too.

Those parts should run fairly cool, I'd try it without the fans for now and if they stay under 80C while gaming/benchmarks on both the CPU/GPU then I wouldn't bother with the additional fans.
So it would be fine with only one exhoust fan at the back? I dont think its gonna overheat much so I wont bother with the fans I guess. Also the PSU says ATX but case is micro ATX, It will still fit right?

The PSU should fit fine.
would there be aby extra issues like with bios, overclocking, cable managment, cleaning? I just wanna for it to be simple to build. Also my local online shop that i will be ordering the parts from is offering to build the PC for free. So it should be allright with bios etc.? Cuz I seen for some mobo + CPU combo having issues.

The BIOS on the motherboard should be updated already enough to support either the 1200 or 2200G. As far as letting them build it or doing it yourself that's your decision. I enjoy building systems so even if someone offered to do it for me I'd turn down the offer. I'm also pretty strict with cable management so I'd make it cleaner then probably most people would do and that case should be pretty easy to work in.

yeah I was thinking it would be fun building it myself since its the first time but also worried since I could brake something or be bad at cable managment. Im trying to see if this PC would be perfect since because Im 15 and 500+ EUR seems a really big purchase for me so I dont want to mess anything up. Also can I get fre WIN10 and install it on the PC without any viruses etc?

There's plenty of build guides online and as long as you take your time & view the guides you should be fine.

Windows 10 is free to use, download the Win10 ISO onto a flash drive and once you start installing it onto the new system when it asks for a key there's an option on the bottom to skip it. You lose some customizing options but you will receive all the important update files and security.

If the system doesn't boot up initially don't panic, you probably overlooked something minor.

I see, my friend gave me few free win10 pro keys, is there any way to test them and see if theyre valid without spending/using them?

Not that I'm aware of. I avoid using free/cheap keys as more then likely there stolen and once Microsoft invalidates them then you back to a unlicensed version of Windows anyways but instead of Windows wanting roughly $100 for the Home edition they'll want $140 to activate the Pro edition.

Also I wont need to buy any extra cables or things needed? Like for connecting components, PSU cord, thermalpaste etc. I do have a 16gb flash for installing the OS
