Trying to build a new gaming PC and wanted to know if all of these parts would work well together

I have built a computer before I am just looking for a double check and any recommendations before I make the purhcase. Here are the specs:
MotherBoard:
ASUS Prime X370-Pro
CPU:
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler
PSU:
EVGA 750W SUPERNOVA
RAM:
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM 3000
Graphics Card:
ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 8GB ROG STRIX OC Edition
Monitor:
Samsung CFG70 Series 24-Inch 1ms Curved Gaming Monitor
Case:
Thermaltake Core P3 SE Black Edition ATX Open Frame Panoramic Viewing Tt LCS
Memory:
1TB Western Digital HD
500GB Samsung SSD
Any comments appreciated!

  1. Poor part selection. What is your budget and location???
  2. Yes, all are compatible. But the gfx card is abit overkill for the Ryzen 3 1200X, even OC'd. And the PSU a bit more than you'll ever use with that rig as-is. Still... if you plan on a CPU upgrade in the near future, the 1070 will be OK. Right now, the GTX 1060 6GB would be a better balanced GPU. Or a R5-1600/1600X CPU for the GTX 1070.

    I changed the CPU to AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler
    And my budget is lower than $2000(not including PSU and storage which I already have)
    I'm in the United States (Texas)

  5. Although the 1600 is a pretty good choice, but for mainly gaming centric build, I would rather go with this...

    Then it looks like you have a well balanced build with enough PSU to add a 2nd GTX 1070 if that is an option you wanted to do.

    One note; the Ryzen boards are better now at their AGESA compatibility than they were early on. But some still balk at populating all 4 DIMMs with just any old memory. Might want to check the memory compatibility list just to be safe. I have an early MSI board that refuses to let me OC my memory even tho it is on the list. Even with the latest BIOS update.

    Considering the i5 8400 is not sold anywhere atm, would you have any other suggestions or should I stick with what I have now?

    Well, its been recently released and very high in demand. It can be a pain to get your hand on one of them but its worth the effort. If you can wait till stock replenishes, then it is worth it. Its not like it will remain like this forever.
    Or you can go with the 1600 atm readily available at the cost of a few fps. Its not bad either.
