I've never had a desktop so I don't know anything, however that motherboard appears to have no wireless card. You may want to add one. As for the rest, yeah that is a serious budget build, processor doesn't have much power. I'm sure you'll find someone else with much better advice, this is all I got though lol

OP would've selected a wireless card if they needed one. They didn't state they needed one.

 

Here's my advice for OP:

 

The 1200 is quite weak. I suggest you remove the aftermarket cooler as Ryzen chips come with decent coolers in the box, and use that money on something like a 3200G or 2200G. Another recommendation would be to downgrade to an A320 board. They offer less features, but my A320 board is working absolutely fine and I don't feel that it's lacking in features. Again, the money saved could go towards a better CPU and more ram. I don't know what games you play, but from my experience, I started off with 8 gigs of ram and went to 16 and a lot of games actually got enjoyable frame rates. Some games were even playable after the upgrade. Anyway, OP that's my advice.

Edit: I forgot to mention this but you will do fine with a 500 watt PSU instead of a 600watt one. The fun I'm budget builds is figuring out where you can save money. Trust me, I've been through it!

Yes it works, no it's not great.

 

Here's something a little more refined for ~500$

 

For the cpu: Make sure it has AF in the product code.

 

And for the gpu, try to find a used 580 or 1070 instead. Those would be much better options to stay within budget and get a good head on performance
