That looks just fine from here.

At me or quote me, I want to hear your opinion.

psu is fine

3600 uses 100-120w max incl. overclocking

your video card ~125-150w

the rest around 35-50w

 

so if you go over 3oow id be surprised

Up to a 3900x you only need a 8 pin EPS connector, if the motherboard has 2 8 pin connectors you can leave the 2nd connector empty

a single 8 pin connector can give 300w to the cpu, and a 3600 with overclocking only eats up to 100-120w like i said.

even  a 3950x can function with a single 8 pin connector, but a second connector is encouraged, to spread the current through more wires.

beacus the pin layout on a x570 looks different

 

It's possible it has a dual 8 pin cpu connector, but usually you can get away with 1.worst case scenario you can find an adapter.

PC part picker? Amazon? I don't have brand loyalty when it comes to psu's, especially as prices change so much.
