Hi everyone,

CPU: I3 9100F
GPU:GTX 1660
RAM:16GB(2x8) 3000Mhz
MB: for motherboard, i can pick ASUS PRIME B360M-A OR ASUS PRIME H310M-A + 128SSD. ( which one should i choose?)
PSU:550W

Yeah, you can edit youtube videos and use 2d unity but you could look for a ryzen build, it might be better for around the same price, If you already have that motherboard or cpu, you should stay with this build

Looking at your choices for motherboard would i recommend to look at soemthing with B365 since most likely to support that cpu from start. Those older boards might be send with a too old bios and in taht case won't support that cpu.

A Ryzen 2xxx with B450 board would probably not have that problem. Or even a Ryzen 1xxx cpu which are very cheap for what they offer.

have to ask,which 550W psu?

I'm not currently living in US and for example RYZEN 5 2600 is about 90% more expensive than i3 9100F and it has the same price as I5 9400F( i don't know if it will be still worth it). should i wait for a few more months and save for the ryzen build?
and for the PSU, it's a popular Persian brand and it's called GREEN GP550A-UK Plus Gaming, not modular and it has 5 years of warranty. can i know why did u ask about PSU?

Not all psu are equal quality. Don't know that brand so can't really say it's bad,but rather would use a known brand myself.

what about the Ryzen 1600 as mentioned above?
I'll tell you the prices:
I3 9100F - 1200KT
I5 9400F - 2150KT
RYZEN 5 1600 - 1970KT
Ryzen 5 2600 - 2170KT AND 1800KT (TRAY )
RYZEN 5 2600X - 2000KT TRAY
Also, Will ryzen be still worth it without overclocking vs intel?
thanks for the help

Editing video's for youtube wil go faster on a Ryzen cpu i bet,but if time is not your concern than looking at lowest budget possible is the i3 a good quadcore chip. Just make sure that the motherboard you get with it either has a compatible bios or that someone (maybe pc shop) in your neigbourhood can update it for you.

Still have doubts about the psu,but that decision is up to you, 5 years warranty may help with that.
