It would be more than enough for this build, though it is a very inneficient PSU, getting a new one would probably be better.

You also want faster RAM for the Ryzen Series, 3000-3200 MHz probably.

And more stroage, for anything, as storage is a pain nowadays since everything is like 100 GB

I plan to oc the ram to 3200 as 3000mhz isn't supported with my MOBO

Storage wise I only plan to play Fifa titles which doesn't take a lot of space

Thanks for the help

Yes, if you click the PSU that is the model that I have

Get faster ram, and a 550w gold or silver rated PSU. That system will draw 250 - 300 w. Of course, if you already have the PSU then it’s fine, just overkill.

Also, consider a second or even third generation Ryzen, say 2600 or 3600 for better memory support and acceptable performance in a few years time.
