Good day all,
I am currently working on a building a pc from scratch , and as the title shown , i have limited budget around 500$, Mainly will use on editing software and daily usage. For editing software, i used davinci resolve, adobe AE, adobe Premiere and maybe some photoshop. Which component and specs would you guys recommend ?? and why??
Thanks in advances. ^^

You have a CPU with the best integrated GPU so you can do gaming at 900p or 1080p just at lower settings. You also have a big enough SSD to hold a couple games. The PSU is of good quality and is big enough to handle most GPUs in the future if you want a quick upgrade. The motherboard is able to take the higher end Ryzen CPUs without issue.

HI jeremyj_83,
Thanks for replying.
Wouldn't a igpu result in a higher heat release?? as all the workload of cpu and gpu are in a spot. How about a dedicated gpu ? amd or nvidia is better ?? If i were to go for a dedicated gpu, which cpu should i get??
Thanks.

The iGPU doesn't result in a heat issue. The CPU still has a 65W TDP and that is split between the CPU and GPU.

This is also a good option, I just would spend the extra $15 on the 2600.

I'd personally go with the used market to get the best bang for your buck, especially in this budget. I've built a PC for a friend that has:

Ryzen 5 1600
Red Devil RX 580 4GB
240GB Kingston A400 SSD
2x8GB Corsair Vengeance 3200Mhz RAM
Asrock B450M
Corsair CX 550 PSU
+30$ Pc case

All for exactly £400, and for that price it's an amazing PC. The only part that was new in this build was the Power Supply and the case, simply because I'd never buy a used psu (I had bad experiences with that in the past).
