Is this Ryzen 5 build fully compatible (first-time builder)

I'm going to build a Ryzen 5 PC, and have the list of parts on PCPartPicker. However, I know that PCPartPicker isn't 100% reliable and I want to make sure that I can go ahead and purchase the parts without having to buy extra SATA cables and stuff, and if the motherboard can connect to the case headers.

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/ThunderStrikeBlue/saved/hXYP6h

- Ryzen 5 1500X
- MSI B350 PC MATE (can anyone suggest a slightly better B350 MoBo for about £10-£15 more?)
- Corsair Vengeane LPX 1x8GB 2666MHz (I know the MoBo runs in dual-channel, I've only got 1 stick of 8GB as I plan on buying another one in the future of the same model)
- PNY 120GB CS1311 SSD
- Seagate Barracude 2TB 7.2K RPM 3.5" HDD
- ASUS STRIX RX 560 4GB
- NZXT S340 Black/Blue
- Corsair CXM 450W
- TP-LINK TL-W881ND Wi-Fi PCIe adapter

Sorry if this sort of post is frequent and annoying, but this is my first build and I really don't want to screw it up. Thanks.

    Second build will game better out of the box but needs a lot more upgrades if you want to move out of a budget build. First build needs only a GPU and perhaps a SSD to play any games very very well. Second would need more memory, a better cpu, and better gpu to be overly impressive

  2. Might recommend on first build to roll with that, but compromise. Go 8 gb of RAM for now, then upgrade the GPU to the gtx 1050ti. That would give decent frames at 1080p, then allow op to drop in RAM and SSD later.

  3. check this one https://pricespy.co.uk/product.php?p=4304779 and if you only get 8 gig of ram for now get a dual kit of 2x4 giig at least running at 3000 or even better 3200 check the g-skill model cas 14 with samsung b-die .

  4. Nice looking board. Roll with that if you can imo. But yes when you get the 8gb, go for a dual channel. It will play everything for a while, you just will likely want to upgrade later.

    Thanks. I'll probably have to stick with an ATX board as I'll probably upgrade to Crossfire in the next year or so. I'm also considering getting a GTX 1060, but not sure if the £50-£70 jump in price is really worth it. Anyway, I appreciate the effort that you went to to give me 2 new alternative builds.

  6. Can't sli without a x370 board you'd can crossfire on a b350 so you'd need an amd Gpu.
    Reply to Supahos
  7. Also sli isn't supported until the 1070

    Yeah, I think I meant to say that I was either going to stick with the RX560 and maybe get Crossfire on a B350 board or instead get just one GTX1060.

  9. Gotcha just making sure you understood what you could and couldn't do :)

  10. Just for point of reference, I think RX 560 is just below the 1050 ti. If you can afford the extra, go ahead and opt for the 4gb model though.

    Here's one of those.

    May just go with something like that so that you can get the most of that budget gpu.
