I have just finished my research and selection of parts for a new gaming PC that I plan to build. The primary use will be 1440p gaming and a secondary use will be 4K drone video editing. I do not plan to overclock. Like many gamers and PC builders, I too am having trouble finding both the AMD Ryzen 5 5900X CPU and a graphics card from Nvidia or Radeon. My intention is to purchase the parts that I can on either Black Friday or Cyber Monday and save money on those parts and then get the CPU and GPU when they become available. Please note that even though I have an Nvidia-based RTX video card listed on the parts list, I have not finalized my decision on whether I will go with either an Nvidia RTX 3070 or a Radeon RX 6800/6800XT. I am just listing the graphics card on there to get a rough idea of how much I may be spending for the build overall. I am also uncertain if I will go with a 1 TB or 2 TB SSD so I have put the 2 TB as a rough estimate for the cost. I am not a 24/7 gamer, but I game often and I am not planning Hollywood-level video editing, so I would appreciate your advice on SSD storage size. Also, incase anyone asks, the three HDDs listed are intended for separate purpose. One is for storing games, the second will be for music storage, and the third will be for drone video storage. I am trying to avoid overkill and going cheap so I would appreciate your recommendations on changes that I could make, such as suggestions for reliable parts and brands that cost less, parts or brands that perform better for a comparable price, etc. The parts list is listed below.

Thanks.
