    Hardly an expert but a couple of observations:
    1. I think you'd need more memory- at least 16GB.
    2. I don't see any storage.

    I would stick to 16 GB of ram as JJTimothy said. It's a good amount of ram not because the game would fully use it (most games use about 10-12 GB) but because it allows you to run other things in the background without performance issues caused by memory saving.
    32 GB would be useful if you wanted to run some really memory intensive tasks in the background like for example running a 3D render and playing TSW while waiting for it to finish.
    32 GB of ram would also be very useful for running the TSW editor in a way that you could have other tools open as well.

    here ary my two cents:
    - if you have the money for 32Gb RAM, go for it. Otherwise 16Gb is fine as well, and you can still upgrade later
    - is there a specific reason you chose a CPU with integrated Vega graphics? If you dont need the iGPU, I'd rather chosse something like a Ryzen 5 3600x, which costs the same, but has 2 cores more as well as a higher clock speed
    - using the GTX1650 super, you probably don't need a 600W PSU. 500W should be completely fine, probably even 400W or 450W
    - I'd reconsider using the GTX1650 Super. 4Gb of VRAM isn't that much anymore, plus there are new GPUs both from Nvidia as well as AMD to be released this year. Waiting for the new GPUs and then choosing a budget option from those new graphics cards will probably get you a lot more performance for about the same price

    400 W is not an option on the website

    You forgot your storage space.. Add a M.2 SSD with at least 256GB for System and TSW, if you have other newer games installed, go for 512GB or 1TB.

    Well, its not in the list.. so how could we know?
    I would recommend to go with SSD and not HDD. The difference it makes for the system drive is well worth the cost difference. Most games will not have a notable performance difference, except when loading a level. But starting the computer and opening programs will be massively faster. And don't forget updates, steam will install them about 10x quicker on an SSD.

    There's no difference. SSD is just a shortcut.

    SSD is the short form of Solid State Drive.
    If I had to take a guess, with "Solid State Drives" they are talking about SSD using the SATA protocol, wehereas PCI-E SSDs are using the NVMe protocol. To keep everything short, go with a PCI-E SSD, they will be the faster option of the 2.
    The internal components of these SSDs are basically the same, just the protocol which dictates how the data is transferred is different.

    Go with M.2 form factor, that does not need an extra pcie slot. I would currently recommend a Intel 660p series SSD. They are by far the best storage/price SSD you can get, performance doesn't matter much for a gaming PC.

    From Mainboard Specs:
    3rd/2nd/1st Gen AMD Ryzen™/ 2nd and 1st Gen AMD Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics :
    1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices support (SATA & PCIE 3.0 x 4 mode)
