    Two Recommendations:

    I would get a larger Power Supply.   800 Watts min.

    I would also get a different SSD.  Take a look at the M.2 NVME SSD's  They are faster.

    That Motherboard has one M.2 socket.

    Enter your details in PCPartpicker to check for compatibility. If I remember correctly a BIOS update may be needed for B450 chipsets for ryzen 5 CPUs, so confirm with the seller that your board has the latest BIOS  or if not he will flash it to the latest BIOS

    As far as the individual components are concerned the PSU is a little known brand I would recommend some better branded such as corsair

    The GPU is currently discontinued and is a very weak performer, gaming won't be very pleasant with that, the minimum I would recommend is an Nvidia GTX 1060 or 1650. Unfortunately GPU are sky high in price at the moment
