Hello everyone

Im looking into building a new PC for occasional Gaming (75hz monitor, 1080p) and mostly for 3D Rendering (Blender) and Video Editing (After Effects).

My budget is 1600$ + - 50$ for the PC inc. Windows 10.

I hope I can get some advise on which componements I should buy as I want it to last for atleast 5-6 years.

Appreciate your help

Depends what renderer you're going to use in Blender. Cycles is more GPU-bound while Eevee benefits more from higher core and thread counts.

For 1080p gaming, generally the Ryzen 5 3600 / RTX combo is best bang for buck, but for AE and encoding in general the 3700X may be better.

Also, for Creative Cloud in general, invest in at least 32 GB main memory.

Thanks for your advice! I will definitely consider 32gb ram. And why not intel? I heard from linus tech tips that they have some sort of quick sync technology which improves performence quite a bit.

Ryzen as a platform is ruling gaming and productivity right now. The 3600 is roughly $200 USD MSRP and compares favorably with the 9700K, which is about $200 more. For about $100 more, you can get the Ryzen 7 3700X, which is an 8C16T monster that beats the pants off of anything Intel offers in its price range.

If you're going with Green Team for your GPU, you also don't need Quick Sync as NVENC does the same job and has been around for a long time now.
