For a gaming build, with Warzone being the prime target, I would go another way for that price range.

Put your money into the vid card; 1650 is way overpriced for what you are getting. Also, Intel offers much better value for a gaming build right now. 10400 is $160 at Newegg, that leaves almost $150 from the CPU budget to put towards the GPU.

I would prefer to 2x16GB for the ram; makes adding more later easy, and is likely to be dual rank which is a good thing. B560 boards support ram XMP, and you will have a great inexpensive gaming build.

The RX6600 and XT were just in stock at Newegg for $530 and less. Even if you have to go with a 1660 super or 2060 or the like, it would be money much better spent than on a $350 1650. Again, spend your budget on the GPU. An i5 and B560 combo is plenty for gaming. Even 16GB of ram for now would be fine, giving you another $60 or so to put toward that all important vid card.

Oh, and put $35 or so into a M.2 NVME for windows, a HDD is unacceptably slow for that purpose.

edit: And you can link your whole parts list by picking the BB code option under the system builder and copy pasta it here.

Yeah, thumbsup on the RX 6600 over the GTX 1650. Remember, the GTX 1650 is around or weaker than an RX 580.

RX 6600 is better than a GTX 1660 for gaming.

I'm guessing that this is a budget build (you mention nothing about your intent except for the title). However, I would have recommended an SSD in 2009, let alone 2022. Do you have plans for a M.2 NVMe drive? It really should be the OS boot drive.
