First time building PC and I'm looking for guidance for my part list

Budget (including currency): 4500 AED

Country: UAE, Middle East

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Valorant, League, Rainbow Six Siege, Kingdom Hearts 3. Adobe AE, Sony Vegas as well as streaming on the side.

Other details:  No existing parts as this is my first time building a PC, I own peripherals that are ready for use as well as a 144hz monitor which I do hope to be running at that refresh rate. I'll be upgrading from a Dell gaming laptop that I bought back in 2016, not sure what the model is. The setup I've put in the PC part picker list is currently over budget by a LOT and I was hoping the community could help me adjust it accordingly.

 

This is my PC part picker list at the moment: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tKRydD

replace the 3600x and x570 with an 11600k and a b560 or z590

also, id recommend using the igpu on the 11600k until that gpu price is lower.

NOT A PROFESSIONAL, just a tech nerd. I am a human and can be incorrect. dont forget to quote me and put full specs in troubleshooting posts

Will take note on the motherboard change, but relying solely on the igpu on the 11600k will cut on it's performance a bit don't you think? I'm not really sure how an 11600k performs but I'll look into it, thank you!

It will cut performance a little bit. But that's better than no performance until you get a GPU yeah?

 

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

Why is the 5800x so hot?

Point made. But I'll be getting the PC as a birthday gift so I'm trying to get the best out of the budget since I won't be able to get the money to buy a GPU anytime afterwards.

I don't know what availability or prices are like there. 3600x-11600k and X570 ASUS TUF to B560M TUF is $7 cheaper in the states. PCPP didn't have a price listed for the 3600x there, but did for the x570. It has a price for the 11600k but not for the mobo. So I don't know if that translates to it actually being cheaper there or not.

I can find alternatives to the parts that don't have prices listed, but as it stands I can look into the parts some more since I have about a month before I get the parts and build the PC, just posting on forums to get tips on building it.
