450W is pushing it too close, 650W is better

Cheaper RAM (same thing but in Red)

is this all compatible?

also would this be worth it or should i just wait it out for 2020 holidays when the ps5 comes out it will run at 144 fps

By then, you may need a $2000 build to use for games ported over from the PS5 to PC.

It's a very good build. I don't see much reason to change any component you have planned. Admittedly I'm not familiar with Corsair's CX lineup of power supplies aside from them being among the cheaper units. If there is a better quality one for a comparable price then that would be an obvious upgrade. For all I know they could be great though; I don't stay up to date on the inner workings of PSUs.

CX is the budget line above the VS, it's the cheapest I would go with for the PSUs. There is also a semi version, the CXM.

Yeah, I had a feeling. Seen some mixed reviews/opinions on those units from time to time. Still though, it should be just fine but I'd say it's at least worth taking a look at some sales for something that may give a little more peace of mind. Bronze efficiency isn't too great either.
