Couple questions on upcoming build/fit

16gb DDR4 3200 on the way, FX rig about to be replaced - Im stuck between a noob and a dumb place (cant help but scratch the itch, feel free to yell at me and tell me to wait).  Help me decide:


ASRock X370 ATX Pro 4 mobo on sale in my price range:



And either getting another Ryzen 7 1700 or Ryzen 5 2600/X


or getting the combo deal below, HOWEVER I have a question (would be first ever MATX board for me, Im a full size ATX kind of gurl) - I have an R9 Fury Tri-X Nitro (slightly larger than 2 slots card), can it fit on this motherboard or will it block required headers on the mobo?  (case is plenty big enough for it all)


Its within my price range and I think the best route to go if my GPU wont block necessary ports/cant mount that card on its side in this case without modding and I don't want to mod this case)

EDIT: I think it will fit, Im just stuck hitting the buy button on that combo so came here to ask tbh, unless the X370 is a far superior mobo, but by the tier list it isn't)
