Maya loves memory, and you should be running in Dual-Channel mode for best performance. Increase RAM to 32GB (2x 16GB). If that is out of your budget, change to 2x 8GB.

Get the 5800X, it has 2 more cores than the 5600X and that means 4 more threads. Since Maya is a fully multi-threaded application it can make use of all CPU cores, so the more the better.

In general, ASUS have the best VRM quality and cooling. The ASUS PRIME B550-PLUS is a great B550 board which offers great value for money and large, full-cover heatsinks over all the VRM components:

i live in India.
My budget for these is 50,000 to under 60,000 INR ($650 to under $800 USD)
Something along these lines will be good. Sadly pcpartpicker doesn't have India anymore on the list. However, these components should come in under 60k INR on
