Trying to build my first computer, so that I can use it for multiple purposes video editing, photoshop-design programs,school, and for gaming(but the gaming part is the least important focus) for $2000 or under (would not mind if it went slightly over. Any help would be awesome! The help I need on is that I want a full tower build, Im trying to figure out what cpu, cpu cooler, motherboard, case, memory, storage, video card, and so that it won't overheat also. I am not worried about any monitors, operating system, lights, keyboards none of that.

Is there going to be a editing of many hours of video?
Will you be doing 4K footage?
How much storage do you need? Video can use a lot.

As for a GPU gaming cards are going through the roof. Your best bets are to backorder on Newegg or snipe a deal that pops up on Best Buy since they seem to keep the cards at MSRP. All options will be higher than was available a month ago.

This GPU can be backordered (B&H). I don't see any GTX 1080 available in stock or back order under $600. Since the GTX 1070 Ti is nearly identical I'd get one before it is too late. They've already gone up a lot in the last week (day even). So, tomorrow may be too late.

I chose the Samsung 850 Evo for its performance and reliability. Other brands boast good numbers but don’t hold up against Samsung. It will be great to work as a scratch disk and holding current projects in Adobe Premiere and Photoshop. Or whatever photo manipulation and video editing programs you use. The hard drive is meant for storage of projects you aren't currently working on.

If you are working on a lot of projects, very large projects or want to store games as well. Increase the SSD to the 1TB model. Also if you will be doing video editing every day. You may want a Samsung 850 Pro or 960 Evo instead for the higher write endurance. Either pay the extra money or drop the GPU to the best you can afford.

Video Editing loves RAM. Pugetsystems recommends a minimum of 32GB for HD video editing.

As for cooling this system includes plenty of fans and won’t have any problems with heat.

There is some room left in case you want more storage, backup drive, better GPU or nicer case.

Total: $1901.10

You could save a little by eliminating the 500GB drive, you don't need it if you have a 4T one. that would save 139.99
1901.10 - 139.99 = 1761.11

If you went with the GTX 1060 (6GB memory) at 379.99 on Amazon. that would save an additional 159.90.
1,761.11 - 159.90 = 1601.21
Phanteks PH-EC416PTG_BR Eclipse P400 Steel ATX Mid Tower Case Black/Red, "Tempered Glass" Edition Cases (69.99 amazon) saves 16.99

1601.21-16.99=1584.22

This mother board is also less: Gigabyte ATX DDR4 Intel LGA 1151 SATA E (6Gbit/s) Motherboards (GA-Z170X-Gaming 7) 139.99 amazon
1584.22 -20.00 =1564.22

SO, if you went with these changes, instead of 1901.10 you would SAVE $336.88 for a total price of 1564.22
But that would also depend on how much video editing you want to do and if the graphics card listed will handle what you need.
