Ryzen 5 1400 and Gtx 1060 is my build good enough for 1080p gaming?

Hi guys, I'm planning on building my own pc
My Build Being -
Ryzen 5 1400
Msi B350 Mortar
Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 2400MHz 8Gb
Gtx 1060 Zotac Amp Edition 3Gb
Antec VP550P 550 watts Psu
Deepcool dukase V2 Case
3 TB WD HDD


1] Can you guys tell if this is good enough build for 1080p Gaming?
I'll be playing Games like Battlefield 1, Witcher 3, Watchdogs 2 and other AAA titles

2] I would also like to overclock my Ryzen when necessary, so it the Mobo good for overclocking?

3] Is Gtx 1060 3gb Zotac Amp edition A Good Gpu? i was previously planning to go for Msi Armor 1060 but because of miners price is inflated and there is shortage of stock, and yes right now with new post mining prices 6gb is just out of question.(Country - India)

4] Psu being the most underrated component, is mine a good one?

5] Any suggestion? Any tips? Also I m on budget and cant go for more expensive components.

Thanks

  1. Best answer
    1. yes
    2. yes
    3. personally, no, 3 GB version had less resource (bout 10% less) and smaller VRAM, won't futureproof too much with a VRAM of that size, GTA V at very high could easily eat 2.5 GB of VRAM if i recall, which means in the near future that card will hit it's peak
    4. not too good, rather get a tier 1 / 2 PSU, maybe Corsair CXM for example (the 450w 80+ bronze is strong enough for that rig)
    5. if the price is good enough, i personally rather get a 1050ti + R5 1600, since changing GPU is easier and later on when vega shows up / 1070 goes down i can save up for it and get a massive performance jump (personally i prefer it this way, some people will suggest u get the 1060 3 gb instead coz they're much more powerful, well they are, but they also had a significant price increase than the original price, though not as much as the 6 GB)
    another tip: Ryzen works better with a DDR4-3000/DDR4-3200 RAM, try to get those instead if u can afford it
