Psu will handle it fine, you need to update your motherboard bios to support ryzen 3000 cpu, the 3200g is based on ryzen+ aka ryzen 2000 cpu cores, so that's the only issue I can see. Also not sure how the boards vrm will hold up as a320 is really the bottom of the stack though it should run stock settings at least, any reason for the 3600xt instead of the 3600, nearly the same performance but 30w less

I agree, at this point the main concern is Mobo VRM, but it coluld be solvable for cheap,using for example a fan pointed directly to the vrm
