    Don't get a b450 board and 3700x b450 board is ideal for 3600x and lower motherboard , also your graphics card is pci 4.0 it's not a compatibly issue but if factor the speed of VRAM and the core count and clock speed doesn't require pci 4.0  and I personally would if this budgeted out maybe scrafce the 3060 for a 2070 and get a 5700x and x570 Asus Tuf was $169 when they came out I bet it's dropped. Then you have pci 4.0 for the next card penny's today dollars tommorrow you will go through another graphics card before you do a whole nother build unless maybe you have a sibling or friend who wants a build in the next 3 years. And don't buy the Enermax cooler if your trying to stay modest with decent RGB go lian li. And I am not fimilar with the power supply just make sure it has enough power cables of the right pin numbers. Some of the 3000 cards take 2 eight pin connectors

    @Zero2110 I apologize for not including the fact that I had already bought the 3060 so would you know what board would be more compatible with the 3060. Also if I do get a better board should I keep the 3700x or still go down to 3600x. Thank you for your feedback.
