Looking to build a great video editing/.gaming build will be upgrading in the summer. My budget is around $900 USD if it could be lower than that I'll be happy.

Looking to use this build to start learning video editing / gaming and live streaming I don't need a keyboard or mouse. I already have a nice monitor. Just need the parts to build my PC and the currency is USD.


Thanks.

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($174.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Team T-FORCE VULCAN TUF Gaming Allian 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($70.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Crucial BX500 960 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($94.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon RX 5600 XT 6 GB WINDFORCE OC Video Card ($289.99 @ B&H)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A ATX Mid Tower Case ($77.98 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($86.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $910.92

You can swap the R5 3600 for an R5 2600 if you wanna save about $50. If you're playing games @ 1080p60Hz, you won't notice a difference between the 2. If you're playing on a high refresh rate monitor, or do anything more multi-threaded then you'll possibly start to notice a difference between the 2. Though, with a mid ranged GPU you're still unlikely to notice much (if any) difference in games, even at high refresh rate.

You can also +$30 to swap the RX 5600XT to an RTX 2060 6GB if you'd like. They 5600XT and 6GB 2060 perform almost identically on average, trade blows depending on the game. So, which games you're playing specifically or whether you're interested in RTX at all would be the deciding factor between these 2 GPU's.

i would suggest to go with the 2700x...the two cores come in great use when video editting rendering etc the 3600 is only better for gaming youd be best off going with a 2700x or better yet a 3700/x

The 3600 is not "only better in gaming". It's better in any situation where more than 12 threads are not being properly utilised.
Even in tasks like editing/rendering where more cores/threads are beneficial, the 3600 can brute force it's way close to 2700(x) performance thanks to the IPC uplift and other generational architecture improvements.
OP specifically stated they were going to "start learning video editing" and in that case, he's unlikely to notice a difference between an R5 3600 and R7 2700(x). If they were doing 4k video editing/rendering on a daily basis, then absolutely the 2700(x) is going to make a difference.

Either is a perfectly fine option. I'd take the 3600 in OP's situation though.

Pip-Boy wroteyoud be best off going with a 2700x or better yet a 3700/x

The 3700x is an entirely different league of pricing, absolutely no chance OP's getting a 3700x system for ~$900.
OP is only going to "be best off going with a 2700x" in heavily multi-threaded workloads where more than 12 threads are being hammered, like I said above. Again though, either is a fine option.
