This is currently the system that I'm planning on building: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/b6NwYT

The power supply I have listed is a Corsair CXM 450w, but I changed a few parts after deciding on the power supply and I'm not quite sure anymore whether or not 450w will be enough for the whole system. Can anyone recommend a decent, budget power supply if the one listed isn't an option?

Get a better board, if you have the intention to OC that processor in the future.

But even at stock speeds. i would prefer a board that has some cooling on the mosfets.

And the Asus - PRIME B350M-A/CSM doesn't have any.

Also higher frequency modules, is something that i recommend.

The PSU is OK. ;)
