    What exact advantages/extra features are you talking about then which will specifically help in usages mentioned here? I am under the impression that for usages here all one need is a mobo with good VRMs & power design that can handle boost clocks of i7 8700 for long duration & a good cpu cooler to prevent thermal throttling while under such conditions. That gigabyte B360 mobo satisfies the 1st criterion & for 2nd criterion I already suggested spending money on a good cpu cooler.

    ^Yes. OP did mention if the budget is good enough for the usage then focus on cost cutting. Getting a Z390 with a non K series processor is waste of money on the motherboard. B360 suggested by whitestar does have lots of features unlike other B360 boards and has high quality VRMs. Also I would suggest getting a 2060 instead of 1660ti with that powerful CPU chip.

    More I/O lanes, more M.2 slots which I highly expect he could use it in future, more PCIe, better quality VRMs, RAID and not to mention he can run memory @ higher frequency. Even if he thinks 6k premium for the mentioned Z board he could still get a decent Z board for about 14k. The suggested B360 board cost over 11k. I don't know how much price difference you guys are seeing online. It's not much and more over he has good enough budget to get something better. It's not like he already overshot his budget with other components and the things he get for the premium is worth, I believe.

    Better quality VRMs not much use for i7 8700 as even B360 mobo I suggested has VRMs that can handle it(aka it doesn't matter practically if VRM on B360 runs at say 55C & VRM at Z370 runs at say 50C).
    As for more lanes/m2 slots/pci slots,yes having more of them can be useful in future but that depends on person(e.g.there are many who won't even be able to use all pcie slots on their lower end mobos while there are some who runs dedicated cards for everything ranging from sound to lan).

    As per Z370 mobo tier list on reddit:
    https://www.overclock.net/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=99753
    This seems to be the best VFM option: Buy Asrock FATAL1TY Z370 GAMING K6 at Best Price in India www.mdcomputers.in
    But @Vyom's friend seems to prefer getting mobo offline at nehru place(asrock mobos availability very poor,only low end ones available) & hence did not mention this option & other good options based on above tier list cost more so suggested B360 mobo.

    Get a 256 GB SSD and with money saved opt for Zotac 2060
    Are the NVIDIA RTX video cards good for video editing?

    and opt for i7 8700 processor instead of 8700k and this will save you almost 11k
