Thanks for the reply had to postpone this due to high gpu prices. GTX 1060 6 GB's are costing around 35K. RAM prices are also adding salt to the injury. Looks like now is really a bad time to build gaming pc.

Why not look at a Ryzen APU (2400G) based system and add GPU once prices subside.

You can go with AMD Ryzen 5 APU for the time being and add any GPU later on when the prices come down. Until then you can play any game in 720p resolution.

Budget -60.7K

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G -14000,
Asus Prime B350 Plus -8000,
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 3000Mhz -6700,
Corsair CX550 -4500,
Antec GX200 -3000,
WD Caviar Blue 1TB -3500,
Zotac GTX 1060 6GB Mini -21000.(Postpone this)
TOTAL -60,700.

Just make sure that you are getting dual channel memory.

Sorry I forgot to mention this will be a Gaming + workstation build. For whatever reason I'm missing the edit button on my first post. I was considering Ryzen 2400G, the GPU part is really good for an iGPU but the CPU part worries me. Since I'll be getting a dGPU wiil the iGPU even matter ? Also Ryzen prices have dropped quite a bit, R7 1700 at 20-21K has really made it a lucrative buy but I can't get my hands on a GPU **** cryptocurrency. These are truly desperate times. :mad:

Dual channel memory is a good idea , but getting a high frequency RAM[anything higher than 2400 would be good] should be a priority if you are buying a Ryzen CPU/APU . Ryzen has been proven to work wonders with high frequency RAM , giving as much as 10 % performance boost in some synthetic tests :- https://www.eteknix.com/memory-speed-large-impact-ryzen-performance/ .
Dual memory is not a 'good idea' but a 2400mhz dual channel kit will beat a single module @3000mhz. So, if one is going with the Ryzen APU build the dual channel is strongly recommended.

If you're buying 2400G then definitely go with dual channel memory. The Raven Ridge APU does not perform well with single channel memory. Here are some benchmarks- https://www.techspot.com/review/1574-amd-ryzen-5-2400g-and-ryzen-3-2200g/page8.html

Are you going for the GC as well? If yes, then i would recommend Ryzen 5 1600 , it is much better processor
