A basic Ryzen 3 1200 or Vega 2200G APU setup will be fine I think. With a basic motherboard like A320 chipset. But you might need a whole lot of RAM for all those tabs lol.
Also get a 2.5" SSD, it will do you good. Don't have to be a large capacity, something like a 120GB with a separate mechanical HDD for all your media files as per your requirement.
What's wrong with your cabinet and PSU?
Your usage is pretty basic. Do not overspend unless absolutely necessary.

Hi,

Any detail suggestion (Part/Model No and Capacity & Price would be great help to decide/compare)

Okay but first what's wrong with your PSU and Cabinet? What is your cabinet model? Asking so that I can help you better.

Secondly, this is not a definitive "must get this exact product" thing, it's more to give you a general idea, however that doesn't make it useless. With multiple options.

CPU: Ryzen 3 1200 ~6200
CPU: Ryzen 3 2200G (APU) ~7850
CPU: Ryzen 3 2400G (APU) ~12340
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 ~13200
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 ~15640
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA A320M HD2 ~4350
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB-2400MHz ~6250
SSD: Samsung 2.5" 860 Evo 250GB ~6000
HDD: WD Blue 10EZEX (faster 1TB) ~2850
HDD: WD Blue 20EZRZ (slower 2TB) ~4650

Total=25650rs (minimum)

GPU: If you go for non-APU CPU like the Ryzen 3 1200 you'll need a dedicated graphics card. If you go for the APU you won't need a dedicated graphics card.
PSU: Corsair CX430M ~3900
CABINET: Personal choice.

Hi,

Will use same CoolerMaster cabinet as there is not a single issue (other than, now days Power Switch took few more seconds hold to power-up system compare to when it was brand new), I also mentioned in template.

PSU, issue (if not an issue than I will be more than happy to retain it, as it's rock solid) click here

Thank you

Any specific reason to change the system? I know people who are using older 2nd gen i3/i5 and it should work well for your usage, you just need more RAM and an SSD.

Just an SSD in my opinion. Nothing else needs an upgrade for that kind of basic level usage.

FYI, I too have a machine running a 2500K and it can handle most stuff including high resolution gaming very well.

In my case, I upgraded to an 8 core Ryzen since I also use my rig for multithreaded work loads.

The only reason to upgrade from a Sandy Bridge right now should be when you need more cores.

Please suggest in detail... one point I missed that since last 6-9 months, as soon as I power-up UPS, system starts automatically (no need to push Power Switch on Cabinet) .. any idea/suggestion why such malfunctioning... is it sign of any component failure etc.?

^^ Check your Power management settings in BIOS. If the state on power restoration is set to "power on" instead of last state, the computer will power on as soon as power is provided irrespective of previous state.

As for the other stuff, what I am trying to say is that your requirements does not look substantial enough to require an upgrade. Your current CPU can handle it easily. At the very least, I don't see a lot of value in upgrading from a 4 core Sandy Bridge CPU to a newer 4 core CPU. Yes, there will be a IPC boost, but is it worth the upgrade cost? If you are a serious/pro user of Photoshop or other intensive tools, then an upgrade to a 6 or 8 core would make sense.

I found that (50/50 %) whenever I shut down system (without following proper closing individual browser/program one by one) directly and some time even when I shut down all open program/browser one by one still next day I face above situation, but randomly, not always.

Yes, I understand your point/view and this is the main reason why I alwyas prefer to take suggestion here from TE.

If you are a serious/pro user of Photoshop or other intensive tools, then an upgrade to a 6 or 8 core would make sense.

No, I'm not pro and also not a serious Photoshop user just a basic cut & paste and image brightness only.

If you power restore state is set to "last state" and you are sometimes turning of your computer without it having properly shutdown, then next time, it will turn on automatically.

Samsung EVO SSD - around 6K. 250GB. Do a fresh install on this and use the existing HDD for data. Ensure you install the SSD on a SATA2 or SATA3 port, especially the latter if possible.

If you are OK with getting used, someone has a 1TB Samsung EVO SSD for around 15K without warranty. This too is a good deal, but you need to see if you have that much usage.

RAM - if possible, bump the 4GB to 8GB with an additional 4GB stick. Try to match it with existing RAM or give details here. Should cost around 3K?

Based on the BIOS settings, it should not be powering on by itself.
Try one thing. remove the chassis power switch connection and see if still does the same thing. if does not, then it means that the power switch or the cable itself might be shorting.

As for the temps and voltages, I don't see anything wrong with the temps and voltages are probably inaccurately reported, but, most of them are fine even if they are accurate.

There will be a front panel header for the power button going to your motherboard named as Power SW. This is the cable from your cabinet power switch. When switch is pressed, it closes the circuit between the two pins that its connected to on the motherboard which powers on the PC. if this cable is shorted for some reason or the switch is getting struck and closing the circuit on its own, then the power can turn on..

So, remove it and try powering on/off your UPS a few times. If computer doesn't turn on this time, but does when the cable is connected, then its possible that the switch or cable is at fault.
