Price the parts separately. £600 doesn't you buy much anyway.

The GPU & CPU seems an odd pairing. Is there an operating system.
You really need to swap that motherboard and memory

Also the cpu is too good for that gpu so it's a mis-match unless you are going to upgrade that gpu at a later date.

Regarding the memory you want 2 sticks of 3000mhz memory, which gives you issues with that motherboard as it's very basic and you could really do with a motherboard with 4 ram sockets so you can double up at a later date. Also personally i'd go for a b450 board.

The motherboard will work, but that is all it will do. You won’t be overclocking anything, and it only has 2 RAM slots.

Yep just updated my post. Personally i find 2 ram slots boards a no no. If i was spending £600 on a new pc, i'd spend another £50 on trying to futureproof as much as possible.

If OP is on a strict budget they could always downgrade the cpu to something that match matches the gpu.

Shouldn't have to get a MSI b450 max motherboard since if you buy any motherboard from cclonline they will update for you but your list is great overall

Nevermind if you have a 2nd gen cpu it doesn't need updating anyway
