AMD RYZEN 5 3600 build configuration

Question asked by cabbage on Jun 29, 2019

Greetings, 

 

I'm trying to build up my first desktop configuration. I'm still doubtful regarding what to buy and incompatibilities.  
After several hours of searching, reading and making some numbers I came with the following:

 

AMD RYZEN 5 3600
AMD RX 590
HP EX900 NVMe PCIe M.2 250GB
BARRACUDA 1TB
VENGEANCE LPX DDR4 2666 C16 2X16GB

I'm trying to find a motherboard which will be compatible with this processor. 
I wouldn't like to spend on x570 as I see them a little bit overpriced. The question is if any x470 will do the job.

What power supply will be required for this configuration. I believe that I should sum the watts consumption of each part and buy a PSU which provides more than my maximum requirements. I would appreciate any suggestion regarding this topic.

 

Additionally, if there is any possible improvement for the configuration that I've provided above, for the same budget, please let me know.

Thank you in advance.
