Hey everyone. Thank you all for taking the time to look at my potential build. 

As you may have seen a lot on this forum, I too want to build my first desktop ever.

I have tried to read as many tips and tricks on picking the correct hardware as I could, but before I start to order everything I wanted to pick your brains as well.

I hope you guys can give me some pointers.

God no on that RAM.  Can get 16GB for that price.

 

Ryzen 5 2600 is $169 , much much more performance.

His link is the 3 2200G, but the price is right for the Ryzen 5 2600.

 

16GB RAM kit for example:  https://smile.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3000MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B07B2WXKYJ/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1544128211&sr=1-4&keywords=16gb+ram+ddr4

i dont get it, if you're using an RX 580 why would you get Ryzen 5 2600g?

 

i mean you could use a non-apu cpu for your rig, and it'll be cheaper ( or is it not? )

Thanks everyone for the tips!

i'll look into other RAM. I choose the B350 over the B450 because of it's price and i didn't think i would need the B450. But if anyone still things that i should go for the B450 despite the higher price then i'll change that too.

 

So now i've got this:

 Ps: The Ryzen 2600G was an error sorry...

I'm not comfortable with a $23 PSU (wattage is fine, but it's just not a stellar unit), grab one at least Tier 3 or better:
