Samsung Evo 980 500Gb NVMe SSD -Rs 4,650 INR
Benq PD 2700 Q MONITOR -Rs 2,6950 INR

TOTAL -Rs 1,34,850 INR

Here are hardware recommendations for photoshop from puget systems:

Two things jump out at me:
1) Likely, you will want more ram than 16gb.

2) 650w may not be enough for the psu, and the Corsair CV units are not highly regarded. Look for a quality psu with at least a 7 to 10 year warranty.

Lastly, with upcoming processor launches from intel and amd imminent, I would not jump on a processor purchase now unless the need was urgent.

I would warn that it is highly possible that your B450 board will need a BIOS update before it will work with a 5xxx series CPU. I did a quick look and did not note a BIOS flash feature listed in the spec. (such as allowing BIOS flash without CPU/RAM).

"Support for" doesn't mean it's already flashed for. It would be a good idea to check the CPU support list on the motherboard manufacturers website to see what BIOS will be required. Of note, there are several different models of that AORUS board (Pro, M, etc.) so be sure to check the specific model you are looking at purchasing.
