Final review before purchasing: Ryzen 5 2600 build

After tons of research I think I've finally picked a reasonable build for myself. I will use it for engineering software (SolidWorks, Matlab, etc.) and some gaming (Battlefield, Assassin's Creed, etc.).

I'd love a quick review before I buy the parts! I chose the a higher end B450 over the X470 since it had good reviews, wifi, and I don't need some of the extra features the X470 has. I also chose the RX 580 since I'm not a huge gamer and only plan on playing with a 1080p monitor.

Wow! Thanks. I'd been looking at either the Saphire or XFX. How does the XXX version compare to the Nitro+?
