New Ryzen build thoughts?

My last computer build was back in 2011 and I'm looking to upgrade. I've put together a Ryzen build and I'm a little uncertain about how solid it is. I'm mostly worried about the new motherboards not working correctly. I already own a GTX 1060 6gb so that isn't included in the budget. Originally I was going to go with the 1600x and buy and after market cooler, but realized it's actually cheaper to buy the 1700 because it comes with a stock cooler. Would love to hear what you guys think... What should I keep or change out?

Thanks!

Good build. Research your mother board bios.

The stock cooler should be fine unless your good for a 4.0GHZ area OC.

I don't know if the AB series has the option to overclock your CPU - maybe go with B350 for the sake of future-proofing? Or maybe even X370?

So how exactly do you compare AMD's Motherboards with Intel's?

There's B250, H270, and Z270. So AMD has AB350, B350, and X370?

Mmm... so that's why the B350 is the best bang for the buck?
