I'm a noob when it comes to building pc's even though I have been researching it for a couple weeks and hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I could point out any flaws in my build that I don't know about. For reference, I am working in 1080p video for now but hopefully looking to go 4k when I can afford a 4k monitor since my camera can shoot in 4k @ 30 or 24 fps. Any and all help is appreciated :)

It seems pretty good, just a few items I would change, to make room for a better CPU and PSU (at least on my humble point of view).

I have no opinion on the drives you selected, but you may end up upgrading later on going all solid state.

What software are you using? Does the parts list you made represent your max budget?

I would be using Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and probably/maybe Lightroom and After Effects. And yes, my max budget is $1,500 USD with monitor, Windows 10, keyboard, and mouse included.
