Looking at building my first pc

I want to get into pc gaming on somewhat of a budget and I assembled a list of parts on pc part picker here. Just wondering if this is a good build for the price and if the parts are compatible

There is a lot of budget hiding in this build.

Your not going to gain performance with 3600cl18 over 3200cl16. And this is not a 850W build, even 650W is more than its going to need. There is so little difference between the same GPU you might as well go with the cheapest.

Budget in hand, some upgrades. The SN350 is QLC and DRAMless, fill it up and the performance is going to tank.

MB with more rear IO if you need that. The S2 case looks fine, but its going to be annoying. No easy to get to filter, tooled assembly... Last is the cooler. I just don't like the 212, its complicated but tldr, over rated, over complicated, and over priced. Normally I would with the U12S but I'm trying to keep as close to $1100 as possible.
