Keep in mind that prices are all kinds of messed up right now because of COVID supply shortages. Do your research and know what a normal/fair price of each component is.
Yea i will do that, for now i am looking for suggestions, i really have no clue whats good and whats not good. After i get a sense of what i need to look for I will do my research in that direction.
I will probably post my final project to see what you guys say

It really depends on what all your going to be using the PC for you also need to list what monitor you have if it's for gaming because that will determine what video card to use.
Some gaming mostly regular work stuff. But i am that guy who wants to have something powerful just in a case.

I have a reguat benq from costco for 99 but i can upgrade if i have to does not need to be included in my2000 price.

Also video editing, some 3d drawing programs, music editing, etc

Why is everyone doing a 500GB SSD and a 1TB SSD?
I was thinking the same thing i think 1 ssd 1tb will be enough for me.

Why ist everyone recommending the msi 450
How does it compare to the x570

Who makes these motherboards anyways and why is there different companies with all the same models of mother boards im confused

X570 is more expensive. You do get more features compared to B450 though. B550 just launched yesterday, so prices are a little high at the moment, but I'd shoot for B550 if you can (once prices stabilize)

As I said, because of COVID, the supply chain is all messed up. So prices are varying wildly, and availability is VERY hit or miss, on a daily basis.

Each brand (Asus, AsRock, MSI, Gigabyte) makes their own motherboards. Each has various models to hit various price points with various features.
