Ryzen 3700X
Asus X570 Tuf Gaming Plus
DDR4 2x16GB 3200/3400mhz (Corsair Vengeance, Hyper X Fury, Adata, G skill) - He can go for 2 x 8GB now and add two more sticks later
GTX 1660 (Zotac or Asus)
For not sure? about OC, I would say 550w. If he is going to OC, better look at 650w or above depends on how crazy he would go with OC. Point to note, Ryzen 3000 is not OCable.
Cabinet of your choice, just make sure it's big enough for everything and have enough ventilation provision.
WD Blue 2TB 7200rpm
Logitech KB/Mouse combo
LG 24" IPS 4k monitor. If he can't afford, he can go for 1080p monitor
This is optional as already he has SSD. Intel 660p 512GB NVME
For video editing rig, most likely he will need after market cooler. CM Hyper 212 Turbo twin fan version.
Have at least 3 case fans in total.

This brings the bottom number close to 125k. Don't get scared.
He can opt for 2x8GB memory, instead of 4k he can go for 1080p monitor, skip NVME drive. This will bring the bottom number under 100k.

Since @ajayd has 500GB SSD already, I would suggest skipping Intel SSD and getting GTX 1660 Super for about 21K. GTX1660 Super is very near GTX 1660 Ti in performance. This would also get budget at about 100K :grinning:

can you kindly ellaborate this part please ?
he is from a town in AP, there local photo&videgraphers outsource video editing to freelance video editors.
This brings the bottom number close to 125k. Don't get scared.

AMD Gaming RIG (GTX 1660 6GB)
Budget -105K
Thank you so much !! I spoke to him now,He is saying 4k hasn't yet became mainstream in his town(Kakinada,AP) so 1080p build is sufficient for now and will upgrade it later. He is prefering i7 8th or 9th gen (because of no past experience with AMD) and if possible he would like to limit the budget to 80k. Can you please modify the build accordingly?

AMD Ryzen 7 is power efficient than Intel because Intel is still on 12nm tech.
Intel is faster in single core performance while AMD is faster in multi cores. I mean per core.
Your purpose needs AMD Ryzen
But if you want intel then go with
Intel Core i7 8700K -27.9 (mdcomputers)
Asus ROG Strix B365 G-Gaming -8.6k (vedant computers)

Okay change to these,

Stick with 3700X
Board - Asus X570 P
For now stick with 2 x 8GB memory
GPU - GTX 1060 3GB
PSU - Corsair CX450 (Non OC)
Monitor - LG 21" IPS
Skip SSD and after market cooler for now, add when he finds necessary.
Rest of the components are same from my previous post.

This will cost about 85k. For about the same price you can get i7 9700k, but 3700X is about 33% better. If still he wants to go with Intel, that's up to him.
I wouldn't cut anymore than this, if still wants to go lower then... B450 chipset board instead of X570. He's not gonna save much there, about 3-4k max.

What is the point in asking for suggestions when he have to buy whatever is available there?
Most components are one time investment for many years so buy whatever is suggested. I have been waiting for many weeks to identify and find parts for my rig as I am not going to change any of them at least for 5 years.

Yeah,I did the same like you when I bought my PC 7yrs ago.Except the cabinet, I bought the exact build suggested to me on this forum and it still works like charm.
I asked him to take some time to understand ryzen processors and different graphic cards for his purpose.Also told him to call the shops and ask for availability and price quotations.If price is less online for any parts ,we can buy them online.But he ignored my suggestion and rushed to buy some build and catch the evening train back to home.Can't help!

Shopkeepers will sell whatever they can where they will get good profit Never trust the shopkeeper (especially Pc shops) Dont change your decision when they force you to buy different products Always follow what is recommended in forum.Well but we cant force anyone your friend fell into the trap.

Dont go with middlemen who try to help you assemble. These guys get some commision if they make you buy from their associated shops and what they suggest is crap always. I got cheated the 1st time I bought in CTC, Secunderabad.
