Hello, my friend would like to replace his old PC with a completely new build and asked me to help him. So here I am asking for your help since you know better than I do.

His main tasks are video editing and gaming. Budget 1000 €. Amazon DE is prefered if possible.

If you need more information, feel free to ask. Thank you for taking your time.

The main difference between the 2 is the motherboard and chassis. The chassis is simply what you see, but the motherboard in the 2nd build allows an upgrade path to Ryzen 4000, if your friend believes they will care about that at all.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Hypothetically, if he did not care about future upgrades, would it be ok if he changed motherboard from 2nd build with B450 and placed the price difference into GTX 1660 (so he'd end up with 2nd build and B450 with GTX 1660)?

?
The 1st build already has the 1660 Super though? Why step down to a 1660?

Sorry, looks like I wasn't clear enough.

What I meant was take the 2nd build and replace the mb with B450 and gpu with 1660 Super.
Would that be okay?

You might be able to squeeze out a bit more money with a 3300x (and 3200mhz RAM), which performs only slightly below the 3600 in gaming with plenty of room to overclock. This would give you an additional 65-75 euros to throw at a better GPU, where you will see most difference in gaming performance.

You could even keep the 3600mhz RAM for under 1k, or even get a 2060 super for just over your budget.

Thank you for your input, will send it over to my friend so he can decide.

Thank you both, you were really helpful! I'll mark it as Solved once he has decided.
