    I recently did a similar build. Got a basic Gigabyte board with the 8600 i5.

    You don’t really need a graphics card with it as the onboard graphics are enough for general use (not for gaming). I don’t know about the video editing tasks you listed though - best to check that separately

    If you are planning to use the graphics card anyway, that opens up Ryzen options as well. The reason I didn’t consider those was that they would need a graphics card, which I didn’t want to buy

    I suggest you pickup ram CPU and ssd (Corsair / sandisk) from USA , as they will provide warranty in India. And mobo I suggest you buy in India to avoid warranty issues. If at all you buy mobo, then pickup top of the line Asus board . Also look for good PSU if you don't have issues carrying heavy stuff.
    Keep watch on Slickdeals.net for low prices deals

    Thank you chetan. My current PSU is CoolerMaster RS-460. Will that suffice for the upgrade? I already have Samsung Evo 850 250 GB SSD. Not planning to get a new SSD for now. I will consider your advice on mobo.

    I am not a gamer. Can i go with a B450 chipset mobo?

    Oh yes 450 chipset good enough. And if the price difference in mobo is nominal then get it locally to avoid headaches. You can sell off the sata SSD and invest in m.2 nvme drive which will boost your performance. look for Samsung or adata m2 nvme .
    PSU I am not sure. Maybe other members can chip in

    B450 tomahawk is best in its category.
    PSU is fine no need to change.
    Don't sell your SSD, if you don't need more space then this will work just fine.

    Budget -52K

    Processor -AMD Ryzen 5 2600X -19k
    Motherboard -MSI B450 Tomahawk -10.5k
    RAM -Adata XPG Spectrix D41 RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3200MHz DDR4 -11.5k
    SSD -Kingston A400 240GB-3k
    Power Supply -Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro 450w -5k
    Cabinet -Antec P100 -3k

    Total -52K
    I suggested the best components in your budget and suggested good PSU and latest cabinet.
    That CM PSU is not at all recommended and might damage your present components.

    Thank you Sunil. Couple of questions.
    Ryzen 2700 is only$30 above Ryzen 2600X? Is it worth the upgrade?
    Can I use my existing CoolerMaster case?

    Do you know for sure it's the motherboard that is failing and not the HDD itself?
