I need assistance deciding which parts to go with on my first build. Using it to play newer single player games like Fallout 4 and Witcher 3. Some For Honor. Also edit photos and videos.

Here's the components I need:

Midsized black case with front usb 3.0 ports, rubber ports to help with cord management, and a window

Motherboard (b450 gaming pro carbon ac, x470 rog strix, among others, just can't decide which to go with)

Ryzen 2600x or 2700x. I do like the increase in FPS/rendering speed, but can't tell if it's worth the price increase

250GB+- SSD m.2 NVMe (or SATA SSD if much cheaper)

2x8 gb RAM 3000mhz (RGB preferred)

Modular/semi-modular 550 or more gold rated PSU...

Controllable RGB fans if not included with case...

My budget is $700 max. I already have a GPU (EVGA 1060 SC 6gb)

for your consideration
going with the 1800x would still get 16 threads and allow a larger SSD.

results are a generalization only but I cannot spend 80 dollars for 8 percent

2600X is likely more than enough threads for your needs....; put the money saved on a larger SSD. (Just guessing from the price that it is likely a smaller boot drive, and 240-250 GB is small these days, as even my 500 GB is already half full with Win10, a handful of VMS, and 2-3 games.
