Im looking to build a new pc for web development/design. Im planning to run a few VM no more than 2 at the same time. Also planning to use some of the ADOBE products (premiere and illustrator mostly). Double monitor. Im not sure what resources I might need. Window/linux compatible. 

 

Open to suggestions

Its not clear to me if you already have the monitos or they are included in the budget?
If you already have the monitors, are they 1080p? 1440p? maybe 4k? 
If not, what size/resolution?

Could you explain why you are suggesting an AMD CPU and not an Intel. 

 

Also What will be the difference between that case and a cheaper case.

The 2700X offers an excellent combination of price and performance for the use case. With eight multi-threaded cores two VM are easily accommodated.

 

Meshify C has excellent airflow. This generally means quieter operation. Many consider it a good looking case that does a nice job exhibiting one's build.

I did not include any monitor. why? I myself dont have any knowledge about "good color" in monitors.
I did not include a case: why? A case is a rather personal choice.
There is still $500 left in the budget whiwh should be enough for 2 monitors and a case.

CPU: because intel is priced too migh at this point in time. 
CPU Cooler: a beafy cooler to keep everything cool.
MoBo: MSI is my go-to brand for mobos and a B450 series is a must with this CPU.(X470 is also good but costs more)
RAM: the standard thing. 16 gb and the ryzen CPU benefits from the higher MHz.
Storage: the basic i alwasy recommend
GPU: handles 1080p gaming good, if you are going for 1440p monitors or higher you wanna go up to the 1070 or 1070TI.

PSU: Decent psu that fits the budget

16 gb vs 32 gb Do it will have any benefits from more memory?

If this were strictly a gaming system, 16GB is enough. However, when doing development work and running multiple VM while working with Premiere and Illustrator, 32GB makes much more sense and will offer better performance. Especially since memory has become more affordable.
