Did you even use pcpartpicker? Plus this is out of OP's budget.

Well, if I remove The monitors, then it just costs close to it.

He didn't add Monitors in his build, so suggested mine

Also, AMD gives StoreMI on x470 boards. So ur getting a lot more for less price

StoreMI basically uses SSD space to move the components u use the most on daily basis and reduces upload times, so u don't have to install everything on sSD, it does it all for u.

You gotta quote people, bro. StoreMI probably isn't needed, to be honest. It is really cool, but I don't think it's needed.

Ok so lots of info (I am reading but it's taking me a while)
So update on my side of things:

No longer a need for an internal optical drive which is positive, a lot more case options.
Does want to have the ability to stream and potentially edit videos.
Will be sticking to 1080p dual-monitor, as opposed to 1440p.
Things like the SSD, wants the quicker speed and happy to give up size for it.
Still wants to work with the red/black colour scheme and likes the little rgb touches on RAM etc.
Looking to keep as close to the £1200 budget as possible, with slight flexibility, which isn't including any kind of peripherals.

So having said all of the above, main parts we're still unsure about would be the CPU & MoBo, GPU and PSU for somewhere in the realms of £800.

Appreciate the help from you all!

There's more budget for better stuff.

 

You don't know that the b450 pro carbon ac has the best b450 overclocks?

But what about StoreMI

There are only 2 boards that support StoreMI. For a budget build, he can get away with small SSD. And a future proof board. X470 is best AM4 board rn.

And never cheap out on Power supply and Motherboards.

I think he's still deciding. Plus, I don't think StoreMI is the sole reason someone should get X470. Doesn't matter though. If the OP's friend is building later, the X570 boards might have more StoreMI support.

StoreMI works on any 4xx chipset board. Also X470 isn't any more future proof (If that is even a thing) than B450. You have good and bad boards on both of those chipsets.

Definitely a strong foundation to work from here, only a few small changes to integrate RGB and stuff like that!
And potentially making the CPU unlocked, which I am guessing is the 2600X?

If we are talking Intel only k and x CPUs are unlocked. But all Amd ryzen chips are unlocked and the x is just a factory over clock and a better cpu box cooler. So no point investing more money in the x models. 

 

 

 

I just took @TH3R34P3R s build and made it a bit more red and black + rgb ram. Couldn't find any red and black gpu. What is up with msi? 

More expensive now. I call it the "bling-bling tax"

@Valont 

Ryzen CPU doesn't need aftermarket Heatsink. The included heatsink is already good.

Better get one 1tb nvme, than 2 500gb,  should get 30% more the bandwidth
