Hey Buddy,

I'm new in this group and wanted to build my first gaming PC for gaming and video editing works (I'm thinking to start my own channel). As I'm a student, I'm not able to spend much on PC Parts so I'm confused about which graphics card should I choose in my build?

Here is my build which I'm thinking to buy, please guide me is this graphics card okay for my build? And please help me in reducing the cost of my build.

In your list, you overpaid for unnecessary parts A LOT.

2600X is a solid choice.
A cpu that has 6 cores and 12 threads and boost up to 4.2GHz isnt something i would brag about, and it would game/stream without a problem. Although i was able to put 5600X in this budget. It also has 6 cores and 12 threads, but it has better gaming performance, and you will kinda need that as time passes by. The PCPartPicker says its not in stock, but it is priced between $300~$350 depending on where you shop.
X570 is a bit overkill for this cpu, i would go for B550 since it will cut the cost down while having almost identical features.
For the ram, 2x8gb is enough for gaming/streaming, but 4266mhz is not something i would aim for. I doubt that 2600X will even accept such high frequency, plus 4266mhz is a bit overkill for just gaming/streaming, and overall pretty unnecessary for a normal user.
2x16GB will allow you to have much more room for multitasking, while 3600MHz CL16 will be perfect for gaming/streaming.
I don't know why that M.2 is $260, that price is absurd. You can get it for $160 on Amazon.
Now for the GPU, a 2060 SUPER EVO would be a good choice, but not for $1100, plus in used condition. I found a 3070, a much more powerful card for $780, new.
Both have 8GB of Vram, which is perfect for gaming nowadays, but the 3070 is newer and has way better RTX features, not to mention better gaming performance.
The case you chose is solid, it has a mesh front panel and comes with a rear exhaust fan.
But i found a better one for the same price, which also features mesh front panel and a rear exhaust fan, but comes with 3 RGB fans on the front, which will increase airflow significantly.
Now the 5600X tends to run hotter than previous generations, so i put a 240mm AIO in there to cool it better than the stock cooler that comes with the cpu, plus this AIO will allow you to overclock the CPU.
The PSU you chose is meh, its not the best but its not the worst. It would certainly not be enough for a 3070 and a 5600X. I chose Corsair RM850W, which is considered to be one of the best 850W psu's out there. Comes with a 10 year warranty (i believe its 10) and that 850W will allow you to upgrade to a even better GPU if you want to in the future.
Overall my build offers much more perfomance, for less money.

EDIT: You are gaming at 1080p, right?

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yr4X7X here's the build I would recommend. and 8 core processor with a good AIO, 16 gb ram 3600 mhz which is plenty, a good price to performance ratio motherboard that comes with wifi, 1tb fast ssd storage, an rtx 3070 which will do nice at 1440p and even 4k, a good budget case (you can get the 5000d airflow if you want it's better but more expensive by around 70 bucks), a nice psu that will even withstand a ryzen 9 5950x with a 3090, and some fans to mount on the front to help airflow (optional). List your budget so we can get a build that fits your needs and stays within what you can spend. Good luck.

Their no video cards in stock so their no reason to build a PC for gaming, even your original card listed is now 1K for a used one.

EDIT really unless you just get very lucky and get a card right now the best option is buying a prebuild PC.

He'll most probably want to upgrade the gpu/cpu, so 650w isn't enough. 750w at the minimum especially that the 5800x and the 3060 combined can take 400w. About the case good choice but I would spend the extra 15 bucks for the 4000d airflow. The b550m motherboard you listed isn't good, as I was there choosing it then saw the thermals... yikes. b550m-plus wifi from asus or b550 tomahwak or the mortar or the bazooka are way better than the gigabyte one. For the cooler, the arctic 34 esports duo is an alternative for a 50 percent lower price. Other than that nice build.

A good quality 650w is good enough for even a 3070/4070, 750w would be required beyond that. PCPP power calculations are pretty close and with a 5800x/3060 combo there is still around 250w-300w ish headroom to play with, even with a 650w. The case is top quality as I am using it in a build and this comes from personal experience. The motherboard is good enough for stock operations without sustained load. As for the cooler, the 5800x can get hot and the 34 eSports wont cut it. You get better VRM with lesser cooler or better cooler with lesser VRM the tradeoff is more or less the same.
At the end of the day, the budget will always be the biggest constraint and you have to get the best combination within that.
 
If we are being honest the 275R comes with 2 fans on the front a one the back, while the 4000D comes with one on the front and one in the back.
If he doesnt care about fancy corsair RGB fans, then the 275R is the clear choice imo.
If it must be a Corsair case, ofc.

More like 310 watts for the card and processor and it don't matter since their no cards in stock.
