 This list looks good, but I imagine you would want a larger HDD which won't be too much of a hike up. Also, I would go with the Ryzen 5 2600x model! This will not bottleneck!  @pothead420

Unless you had or was going to buy an external Blu-Ray/DVD reader/writer the case you selected didn't have an internal 5.25" Bay so I had to change the case then I added a 3 TB HDD because then you could save all of your rips on one drive and I also upgraded the 1 TB drive to 2 TB because I believe that 1 TB these days is bare minimum for computers these days.

No ALL Ryzen chips are overclockable as long as they are paired with a B or X series board
