Hey Buddy,

I'm new in this group and wanted to build my first gaming PC for gaming and video editing works (I'm thinking to start my own channel).

As I'm a student, I'm not able to spend much on PC Parts so I'm confused about which graphics card should I choose in my build?

Here is my build which I'm thinking to buy, please guide me is this graphics card okay for my build? And please help me in reducing the cost of my build.

Most if not all of your items are less expensive on Newegg. I stopped buying computer parts on Amazon; Newegg has actual customer service instead of just the Amazon return option. They've also been in the computer parts business since before Amazon was even just a book store.
You've picked a lot of items for flashiness, it seems. "HyperX Fury" sounds cool, but really, they're overpriced mainly due to packaging and presentation. You're paying about $65 extra for some colored lights on the memory sticks. Seriously? Go with Crucial or Corsair if you want quality per price. Corsair's LPX series in particular is an exceptional choice, IMO. I just bought a 32GB (2x16) kit of that for $117. Alas, there are no lights on it. I kept $65 instead compared to the Fury with blinky lights:
For the video card, you've picked a rather hard core gaming model. At 720$ its the priciest item by far. If you're a student with not much to spend, that model is looking like a serious luxury! I recommend something in the 1660 or 1650 series for a lot less $$$. Then if you start your own channel and make a few bucks, then you can upgrade to something like that. I have a 1650 and it works just great for video and photo editing. Look at it this way: if you spend all your time playing games in 4K with the 2060 then you won't have any motivation. If you aren't happy with games at 2K with a 1650 then you'll do better on your work productions! Finding ways to motivate yourself is the key to success, seriously.
Oh, and if you downgrade to a $400 card, use the difference to get a better power supply. Silver or gold, and at least 750 watts. It makes a serious difference in whether your system will last or burn out.

Oh I just noticed you listed the 2600x; the 5600x are out and much, much better.

Hi folks. Need your help. I have a rather weak PC, but I'd like to study video editing. Are there any video editors that don't require a powerful PC? Oh, and I know this is an old thread, but I really need your help

I totally get your dilemma. Studying video editing with a weak PC can be challenging, but don't worry, there are video editors out there that don't require a powerful machine. You could try out software like Movavi Video Editor or Shotcut
