I'm getting the parts to build a new PC and I need help to make up my mind whether I should buy the 3700x or the 5600X.

There will be no gaming, just everyday office use with some photo editing and possibly some video editing.

It will be sitting on a X570 motherboard with 32 GB of Ram.

The 3700X is available now, but I can wait for the 5600x if I need to.

Or maybe I should go with the 3600 and spend the $100 savings on something else.

All suggestions will be appreciated.

Hello there!
As you won't gaming but use it for photo/video editing so I'm gonna recommend you to get a 3700x
 
The state of affordable CPU performance is so high right now even two generation old parts (Ryzen 2700X) would still be very good for your use case. Sacrificing 5-15 sec's on a video rendering isn't really going to matter that much if you can get one at significant savings and it will be completely unnoticeable in your everyday office use.
