Hello. This is my first time building a PC, and I've picked out all my parts. I just want to check that everything is compatible and that I have everything I need. I also welcome any other advice regarding my build.

Also, I've noticed the RAM I picked isn't on the QVL for the motherboard. Is that a big deal?

I'd get something like that instead.

Z590 motherboard instead of H570. H570 doesn't really make sense with an unlocked CPU, especially when it costs more than a Z590 mobo anyway.
Better CPU cooler as well.

32GB RAM instead of 16GB.
Similar SSD, if I remember correctly, the AData should have slightly better read speeds, and Intel 665p should have slightly better writes. Shouldn't be much in it either way though so I'd probably just save the $20. The 665p is a fine option, but at $110 there are probably better/faster alternatives that would make more sense.

Case is personal preference, get the Meshify 2 Compact if you prefer that. Plenty of other good options as well, P400A is just kind of a go-to recommendation for me currently.

I've included a really nice 1440p 144Hz monitor here for you, instead of 1080p. Also, a better quality and IMO, much nicer looking keyboard.

Haven't included a GPU in this list, but that's because I'm assuming you can actually get that RTX 3060 for $500 and if that's the case, grab it!
