I just got delivery of some parts to do my next budget build:

CPU+GPU - AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G, the G version has the GPU built into the CPU, did this because GPUs are very expensive right now. This is a nice CPU, but you have to order it from South Korea because it's OEM only.

Motherboard - MSI A520M-A Pro, this board specifically supports the above CPU, has HDMI and DVI out on the board, and is low cost. I've had good experiences with MSI. Boards don't fail after 5 years like some other brands I've had. The A520M Pro (no -A) has HDMI and Display Port out on the back, but Display port cables cost extra.

RAM - 16GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3200 16GB kit (2x8GB), "Engineered for the latest AMD platform"

SDD - Crucial P2 NVMe M2 1TB, it also comes in 2TB form. P2 is more reliable than the P1, but I've only got good things to say about Crucial in general.

Case - Thermaltake Versa H15 with 450W power supply, more than enough power for this build. I have 3 of these cases already, this makes the 4th, good for a neat build. Front panel ports are on top so you don't knock USB or audio peripherals out when you walk past.

2 x 32" 2560 x 1440 monitor with a BOE IPS panel (various brands, I have a Kogan). I love these BOE panels, great color, nice even brightness, supports freesync, and I run at 125% desktop scaling so everything is big and smooth, just the way my old eyes like it.

I haven't built it yet, I'm expecting it to be flawless.
