I was wondering if the following build was fine with a little bit of light, 1080p Gaming and Video editing with an $800 budget (Includes Shipping). Am I missing anything? Are there any compatibility issues? Is the added PCIe Wi-Fi Adapter going to be an issue? The CPU cooler is the stock cooler that comes with the CPU(Wraith Stealth Cooler)

9/10.
-The combination of RX 590 and EVGA 500 White is a huge red flag.
Either change the power supply to something like a Corsair TX/RM 550, Seasonic Focus, or change the gpu to a 1650 Super/1660 Super.

If you are spending almost 230$ on a RX590, you might just want to spend 30$ more and get a 5600 XT.

Is not bad build at all, I don't like that particular MSI motherboard (OP one), no vrm heatsink, and only 2 dimm slots. Also yeah the RX 590 is kinda old GPU and so it consumes a lot of power, I would really try and get something like this instead:

Rx590 is just a Rx580 on mild steroids, didn't fix its everyday issues though. One being power consumption and spikes, the other being wasted heat. And that's if you had no driver issues.

And XFX must have had a change in engineering leadership, because it's been a while since they have had any well thought out designs or implementation. They used to be excellent, but lately their failure rates and issue rates seem to be higher than warranted. For Amd gpus I tend to stick with Asus or MSI. For nvidia it's Asus or Evga.

The 1660 Super is a better card than the older Rx590, and will work with the chosen psu. Not to say there aren't much better choices for psu, a Corsair CX 550w is $75 from Corsair direct, and thats before the 10% discount code Corsair gives you on signing up. (CX is better platform than CXM, it's just not modular).

Other than that, the rest is decent.
