what kind of budget are you looking at?

right now the 5600x and the i3-12100 is good as well for a lower budget.

personally the 5600x is the way to go right now for it's price/performance, cheap mobo's and easy cooling.

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor ($193.42 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming 4/ac ATX AM4 Motherboard ($94.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Aegis 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $338.40
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

the included cooler is ample for the chip but if you want something quieter a simple budget cooler will do fine for not much more cash. maybe $30-40 or so.

thank you for your support and advice , I value the help you've given me . well i am from india the prices are way to high. i will go for 5600x price is around $222 including taxes and gigabyte mobo is $112
ASRock they dont provide services in service centre here. G.skill memory its ok for me. thanks a lot..
 
I agree with what was said above. This is coming from someone who usually goes amd, but I’d try to get the i3 12100 with a good board. I say this only because socket am5 should be out in a few days and there won’t be much upgrade room from the 5600x. At least with an i3 12100, you should be able to upgrade to a 13th gen i7 or better if you wanted.

sorry did not know you were in india. that of course changes things some

partpicker does not index india prices, but with a site or 2 you can buy from, it's not that hard to see what is available and offer some advice.

i don't know the language but specs and pics are pretty much universal :)

a budget is also helpful to not go overboard or to skimp more than needed.

the sites shows the actual price but wont give any discount only if you have instant flipkart or amazon credit card,
thats why i bought a 2 graphics card (other for brother) from a computer store , for 10% to 12% discount 22,320 INR each
