    If you are not overclocking then no point getting a K edition processor & similarly no point getting such expensive mobo(they are expensive because they are meant for some serious overclocking).

    Buy Online | GIGABYTE B360 AORUS Gaming 3 WIFI Motherboard | Price in India
    PROCESSOR INTEL CORE I7 8700 8TH GENERATION (12M CACHE, UP TO 4.60 GHZ)
    Buy Online | CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (16GBx1) DDR4 3000MHz RAM CMK16GX4M1D3000C16 | Price in India

    Optane is just a gimmick,no need to waste money on it especially now when ssd price have come down & still decreasing.

    I hope you have a good psu to handle such a system.

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600-12,400
    ASROCK X370 PRO4-7,900
    CORSAIR 16GB DDR4 CMK8GX4M1D3000C16 3000MHZ RAM(8GBX2)-10,000 for dual channel configuration

    I wouldn't get any Intel CPU now they are overpriced and no of cores in them are not enough for future.Watch below CPU utilization in both CPUs. Ryzen are cheaper and future proof


    What graphics card and PSU do you have?

    i have corsair 1000hx
    and graphix is zotac gtx 970 amp extreme

    what about i5 9600k ?
    (my old pc specs were i7 920+ 12 gb +gigabyte ex58 extreme .using for 9 years.some mobo problems have occured thats why i am changing my system.CPU has no problem and i can play battlefield 5 with no probs)
    I want future proof pc for 9-10 years(will upgrade gfx card when necessary but other parts stay as it is. can ryzen run for 10 years without problems?)

    UserBenchmark: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X vs Intel Core i5-9600K

    ryzen 7 2700x or i5 9600k both costs near the same?
    i am now leaning towards ryzen 7 2700x--29k
    Asus ROG CROSSHAIR VII HERO---25k

    My full specs is in the signature below.

    They don't make mobos like earlier times,consider yourself lucky if any recent mobo can last beyond 5 years.One thing that ryzen has which intel can never have is better future upgrades. Intel changes its socket every year so after 3 years(standard mobo warranty) it is hard to get a similar quality/feature mobo for older intel processors.Also since you are aiming for long term it is better to go with single 16gb ram stick for now if you think you will need more than that in future as running 2*16gb ram on ryzen platform is better than running 3*8gb or 4*8gb ram.

    Get Ryzen 7 2700 instead of 2700X in gaming there is only 4-5 fps difference between two while 2700 is almost 5k cheaper
    I would suggest ASUS PRIME X470-PRO for 15k

    corsair equivalent ram ?
    I have seen costly mobo last long like my gigabyte ex58 extreme which i didnt overclock.since there are stability issue with frequent restarts so I have to change it. I had used the mobo extensively for 9+ years with no problems except the 2 lan ports going kaput.
    I may overclock if required to bump the speed to 4ghz which can be easily done with its included heat sink.
    another good thing about the mobo is it has lots of usb ports.

    mobo i will buy costly ones which i think will last longer.
    is 2700 x not worth 5k more?
    2700 ----------------------------- 2700x
    Base Clock

    3.2GHz --------------------------3.7GHz

    Max Boost Clock

    4.1GHz --------------------------- 4.3GHz

    base clock is .5 more
    wraith prism cooler is better than wraith spire.will save some money in cooling.

    Your chosen config is good,asus crosshair 7 is one of the best ryzen mobo & 2700x is better with its wraith prism cooler(but it may be noisy at high temps).

    All ram are equivalent,only criterion being whether they work or not with a processor+mobo combination. That Hyperx Fury has 3200mhz vs corsair's 3000mhz plus both have official service centres in India & price difference is also not much.

    2 lakh minimum avg quarterly balance,too much. You can earn more than 2500 in a month with this amount by investing in some good stocks.
