Want to build PC around i5 12600k (Have short listed this processor due to 10 Physical cores, priced at 29k rs)…Budget is 1 Lac, so remaining balance is 71k(Excluding the GPU and Monitor), please suggest the best RAM, MOTHERBOARD, PSU, CABINET, SSD etc which would compliment the processor I have chosen.

Usage would be productivity (Multi-layered motion graphics in After effects, Video editing in Premiere, etc), No gaming whatsoever.

My recommendation is to not cheap out in PSU. Get a minimum 80+ Bronze rated one  (wattage depends on GPU). For SSD chose M.2 2280 one’s. For RAM choose 3600 Mhz CL16 (2* DIMM)  e.g. if you need 32GB go for 2*16 combo

Great. Noted.

MB – Compare H510,B660,H670 & Z690 boards and pick the one that’s appropriate for your needs. If you’re not a pro (needing a lot more SATA/M.2/USB ports then B660 should be fine. Can get Z690 for 5k more though)

RAM – 16/32GB DDR4 + ~3000MHz clock speed. If the price difference isn’t much, then CL16 variant (Difference won’t be significant though CL16 vs CL18 + Single vs Dual channel RAM)

PSU – As suggested above 80+ Bronze rated

Calculate wattage : Power Supply Calculator – PSU Calculator | OuterVision

For instance, a ~600W PSU should be enough for Intel i5 12600K + Nvidia 3060 + 1TB NVMe SSD + 2TB HDD & 27" 2k monitor (If you opt for much larger monitor, say 34" 144Hz & a lot of USB powered devices then consider getting 700W PSU)

SSD: 1TB Samsung 980 / 970 EVO

Cabinet : ATX/miniATX/Micro-ATX depending on the MB you pick

PS: Search forums for compatibility issues before making the purchase ( MB,CPU,RAM )

Great as always. THANKS.

Tbh Intel 12th gen is kinda in a weird spot atm. If you go for DDR4 motherboard you will be getting same performance if not slightly lower than AMD’s counterpart in gaming. Performance Intel is going to be better because of the more cores but its cutting close to 5800x which knocks intel’s part out of the park.

If you are going for DDR4 you are going to equal AMD’s performance.

If you are going for DDR5 your budget has to way high up since DDR5 is damn expensive atm. 

Also 71k you won’t be able to get a decent RTX GPU unless you going second hand.

Yes you hit the nail

Yes you hit the nail on the head! in the same dilemma, DDR5 is too expensive and getting it won’t justify the price to performance ratio. DDR4 with 5800x or 12600k with DDR4 is the confusion here. Any more inputs here?

5800x with DDR4 is better than 12600k DDR4 by a long shot tbh almost 30-40% but 5800x is also slightly expensive than 12600k but considering the motherboards costs for intel you should be able to get them for almost same price towards the end. I’d say look at 12700k since its higher core count and pricing almost same as 5800×.

Imo, you should go for 12700F (F means no integrated graphics, K means higher clock speed) or 12700KF(Higher clock and no integrated graphics) which should equal the prices as AMD and get you better performance. If you get F CPU’s you need a graphic card for it to show output, else they do not work.

Good. Trying to keep options open. Making my mind. Will most probably settle for 12700 as per ur suggestion..
