I would very seriously consider a 4K monitor, the difference is huge from full HD, and prices have come to the affordable segment. Save up if you have to, but 4K is a must if you plan to keep the system for a long time.

And I would go with RAM at a minimum of 16 GB, 8 GB will fall short with multiple applications and multitasking.

Firstly I am not gonna use a dedicated GPU so no 4k gaming, second the mobo can not output 4k resolution through HDMI, third is the cost, so I am gonna stick with a FHD panel.

RAM prices are hell lotta increased right now so maybe i will upgrade in the future if the prices settle.

You don't really need a GTX GPU for 4K media playback. I'm using a GT730 on one of my HTPCs. That thing cost me around 7K a few years back, and made a world of difference for media playback over the on-board CPU/GPU combo.

4K monitors are also in the affordable range, starting around 25K on Amazon.

Either way, if you are going over 24 inches on the monitor then do consider 4K, full HD is ok on anything lesser.

25k will exceed my budget by 10k so right now I cannot consider it buying.[DOUBLEPOST=1530982587][/DOUBLEPOST]Decided the case- CORSAIR CARBIDE SERIES 100R MID-TOWER CASE CC-9011075-WW

But still can't decide the PSU. Looked for Corsair CX 500w but its mostly out of stock. And also having second thoughts about the mobo. How will MSI B350 pro vdh be?
[DOUBLEPOST=1530983651][/DOUBLEPOST]I will appreciate few quick replies as I have to buy within this month.[DOUBLEPOST=1530984183][/DOUBLEPOST]Also I am looking for a monitor with in-built speakers with atleast 2 HDMI ports.

Because you're going for AMD APU anyway I would suggest the LG 22MP68VQ/P which will cost a little over 9k. It has FreeSync, FHD, IPS and also has slim bezels. If you want a bigger size screen you can check it's bigger variants like the MP23/MP24 (iirc).
Regarding the PSU, not sure if it will still be available but Seasonic has Eco series. Prices have increased a lot over the years though so they might be more costly than Antec's.
For SSD: Do not go for "any" SSD. Get the Samsung 850/860. DO NOT buy other SSD's unless you're brand loyal. Samsung makes the best SSD's with value.
Case: depends on how much you want to spend. Cheaper models especially those from Deepcool/Circle etc have serious quality issues. If you want a more refined product Corsair 100R/200/Spec, CM N200 (I love this one btw) and few other models should be decent choices.
Peripherals choice is subjective.
Also I am looking for a monitor with in-built speakers with atleast 2 HDMI ports.
I don't recommend it. Get proper 2.1 speakers. Don't have to cost so much. There should be a lot of speakers in Nehru Place. Edifier, F&D, Logitech, Creative etc.
but 4K is a must if you plan to keep the system for a long time.
Nah. 4K is overrated. When even 1440p hasn't even become a proper mainstream yet how would 4K?

Antec & Seasonic are no longer an option for psu as all their models currently available here are either end of line/discontinued products or are inferior to latest models from Corsair.As of now the best budget psu is Corsair latest CX450/550/650(not CX450M etc) & above that it is TXM & RMX series.You can get CX450/550 from mdcomputers.in as costtocost in Nehru place usually is out of stock for latest CX series.
https://mdcomputers.in/corsair-cx450-80-plus-bronze-cp-9020120-uk.html
CX550 is currently out of stock though but a good 450W is more than enough for this system even if you decide to get a 1050Ti/similar card later.

Just wondering, what MHz of RAM are you going to get?
I am planning a similar build, but everyone told me, that I need atleast 3000 MHz RAM to fully utilize the Ryzen APU capabilities.

And 3000 MHz RAM is crazy expensive.

I was also deciding between G4560+1050ti and 2400G for a primarily CSGO build.
Cant really see the point of a 1050, is what is a CPU intensive game.

Has panorama UI changed anything over scaleform?

Your concern should be the stuttering, not the average fps. I too used to play CSGO a lot. While graphic details aren't really important for CSGO the stuttering will be a pain in the butt! Trust me on this one. Especially if you play competitive and your rank is MG or higher. I would suggest a fast 4C/4T. Can be Ryzen 3/5/whatever non-APU's or i5's (even older i5's does it for CSGO and Dota2 and other "esports" titles). For competitive CSGO I absolutely do not suggest any compromises. If you're worried about the budget you can get a used older gen card. They still handle CSGO just fine.
Playing a lot in cafe systems have taught me that lesson.

That hyper 212 led is only red right? Since rest of the components are RGB, this may affect the "light" looks - but if ypu don't care, thats okay ;-)
Unless you are serious about overclocking, you may want to go with an AIO with RGB to complement other comps, however choose the one compatible with Asus Aura so that you have single spurce of control.

Also if serious about RGB, imo Gkill trident z has more of that RGB spread area than Adata one ;-) pricewise and performance should be similar
