Hello,
I'm going to build a PC for little Video Editing (Adobe Premiere Pro) and Gaming (Forza Horizon 4, Pubg).

CPU: 2x Xeon x5675
GPU: RX 570 4GB
All in a HP z600

is it a good build or a bad one?

I've never used Premiere Pro but was curious how it would perform on multiple cpus and came across this.

Might want to look into it further to avoid spending too much and be disappointed. Games won't benefit also.
What about your PC's specs ? If I use an i7-2600K with an RX 570 4GB and 16GB 1600 RAM, will it achieve 60+ FPS in Forza Horizon 4, Shadow of theTomb Raider, Tekken 7 etc.?? (Not considering premiere pro here)
*Sorry for my bad english

570 would get you around 60, probably a bit more depending on settings.

Forza, cpu: 8700K

Tomb Raider, cpu: 9900k

My system is ancient and a decent used motherboard to overclock an 2600k to make it viable are expensive. Wouldn't bother.

Maybe look towards a Ryzen build.

Suggestion for the main parts.

Looking any of the platforms this old will not bring as much value as newer generations or a new system from scratch. The z600 is a solid platform, but is long in the tooth (great for vms though thanks to massive ram capacity).

Thanks for your suggestion.
You just said mobos are expensive??!!!! Here is Pakistan, a Z77 mobo costs about 55 to 60 USD.

If you can find a good deal then great.

It's a used market so it's unpredictable. But if there in Pakistan you can find a good price on a quality mobo and 2600k / 3770k in good condition then that would be good too, will do what you want.

I have a dell precision t7500 with dual x5680’s and honestly it’s still pretty decent these days. Games that don’t use a lot of threads suffer a lot though. I used to have a gtx 1070 in mine and would play forza horizon 4 in 4K ultra at 60 fps no problem. Unless you can get it cheap though I wouldn’t recommend it. It will last you a couple years but there getting dated. They hold out better than most PCs that old or even a bit newer especially with how things are going with needing more threads and all. Just my two cents
