Budget (including currency): US$1000

Country: Singapore

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: FHD Video Editing, occasional 4k editing, photo editing.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I have the current parts lists of choice, just needed advice on what could be changed to optimize the system without really blowing budget.

 

Corsair Carbide 275R Airflow

Ryzen 5 3600XT, stock cooler

MSI B550M Pro-VDH Wifi

ZOTAC GTX 1660 Super 6GB

T-Force Vulcan 32GB (16 x 2) 3200MHz

WN Black 500GB NVME M.2

Seagate Barracuda 2TB (To store footages)

EVGA 650W 80+ Gold

 

And I'd like to throw in 3 additional fans (2 included in case) at the front as supply, with 1 rear and 1 top as exhaust.

I'm not really looking at RGB atm.

 

If anyone could advice whether this set up will be a good sub-1k build?

-xt series chips are a waste of money, theyre basically indistinguishable from the cheaper chips aside from very specific overclocking stats. that build you have there is already pretty far over budget from what i can tell. heres what id try for:

not really any way to go lower on specs without losing a disproportionate amount of performance. if youre using strictly adobe or davinci resolve then you could try for a cheap i3 intel build which may be adequate, but 6 cores with good memory clocks would be ideal

topics i need help on:

Oh I plan to purchase on amazon US and ship it out through forwarding company. This $1k is strictly set aside for component parts bought from amazon US.

 

Anyways what are you thoughts on stock cooler for 3600x/3700x?

PcPartPicker has a Singapore option. $USA and $Singapore prices are not remotely the same so this is a bit confusing. 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

in that case: 

 

the 2060 ko should be near 310 bucks when its properly in stock and is super kickass for compute workloads. theres a lot of articles and such about that specific model and its an insane card for the money (at 310 bucks which is where it should be). the stock wraith cooler is fine for a 3600, for anything higher perhaps consider a 20-30 dollar tower cooler like an artic freezer 33/34 or hyper 212

I would still spend a few $ more, those extra cores will come handy for video editing.
