First build what do you guys think about it?

Hello I am planning on buying parts for my very first custom PC this week and I came up with this build, what do you think about it?

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor (€212.50)
Motherboard: MSI - B350 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard (€96.89)

I`ll be buying parts in Lithuania from this website http://www.skytech.lt/. PC will be mainly used for gaming and browsing web but I will learn some codding in the future. For now I`m going for 1080p 60FPS high/ultra but in the future i will buy 144hz monitor which is why im going for GTX 1070. My max budget is 1100 €. Im planning on buying extra 8gb RAM in the future as well.

Could I slightly overlock my RAM/GPU/CPU? I Havent ever done that but I heard it's worth doing for some extra performance. Are parts compatible? I did my best checking but Im still not 100% sure. Thanks for taking your time to read this.

  1. Best answer
    i vouch for your build, it's pretty awesome and well balanced
    it's all compatible don't worry

    OC guide:
    CPU: motherboard should already come with some OC profile, u can just use that for ez OC
    GPU: Nvidia already comes with GPU Boost, which will boost your clock according to the situation
    RAM: same as CPU, however, higher than 2677 would require some manual OC, so u should do some research on that :)

    the only thing u should change though, is your PSU
    for overclocking, you should go with a tier 1 / 2 PSU:
