Basically here I'm looking performance over price 100% and keep in mind I can't get this PC until around 2 months from now so finding parts that are limited time sales isn't really needed.

The budget for my build is $1,200 but once again performance over price so if you have to go over feel free too.

I'm looking more at AMD this time around but obviously don't mind NVIDIA as I'm more familiar with their parts.

Basically only thing I can really say about parts is I don't need more that 560gb ssd.

With this of I want it to last awhile so psu motherboard and cooling is important.

I do want it to have some rather nice egg not that it's important but I want it to be flashy as I've always avoided it and I'd like to kinda make something with some eye candy to it.

I will be doing heavy gaming mainly older games but some performance heavy games such as arma 3 as thats one of my favorites, modern games such as Warzone, destiny, and more as well as some heavy editing apps like photoshop and premiere.

I do need MnK as well as mics and monitors but I'm not including that in this post!

My true at the end of the day budget is $1,400 but lower the better just don't be afraid to go over a bit on the original $1,200. If there's also any recommendations feel free to give them.

If you're not buying for 2 months, then there's really not much point getting a parts list. B550 motherboards will be out for AM4, which will likely make sense if you're buying Ryzen. Otherwise, 10th gen Intel Core i CPU's will also be available by then.

That said, this is probably where I'd start;
PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($184.99 @ B&H)
Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard ($189.99 @ Best Buy)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($72.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Sabrent Rocket Q 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($129.97 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB PULSE Video Card ($394.98 @ Newegg)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital ATX Mid Tower Case ($100.00)
Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($99.99 @ Best Buy)
Monitor: VIOTEK GN32DB 32.0" 2560x1440 144 Hz Monitor ($289.99 @ Best Buy)
Total: $1462.90

then grab a decent B550 mobo for $100-150, instead of X570. Also, get the P400A RGB when it's in stock for $90-100, don't pay anywhere near $200 for that case. Otherwise, get something like a Cooler Master NR600 for $70ish and buy your own RGB fans for it if you really want.

Can swap the RX 5700XT for an RTX 2070 if you want. Similar price. 5700XT performs 7-10% faster on average than the 2070, but the 2070 has RTX and DLSS 2.0- up to you which you find more important.

If you want Intel instead of Ryzen, get a 10th gen i5. A locked i5-10400F should be about $175, plus $75-100ish for a B460/H470 motherboard. Or if you want to overclock, 10600K(F) should be about $250, plus $150ish for a reasonable Z490 mobo.

I don't need the monitor right away do you reckon I could get a better processor with the money used for the monitor?
