I had some help from a friend with this first time budget build but even so i would like some more input on what i can change about it. changes such as the power supply and if that's sufficient enough. i tried using the power supply calculator on outervision.com and it's giving me answers like a 500 or 550w power supply for a recommended psu wattage of 373 W. so i wouldn't really know if maybe 600w is a little too much? other than that any other opinions on parts would be welcomed. i planned to use this pc for editing, recording, and occasional gaming and streaming. this is the end result my friend with somewhat knowledge on the subject could help me with but still recommended i ask others.

thanks.

What is your budget?

2400mhz ram in a 1 stick config cripples performance.
That PSU is ok, not great. It is really overpriced.

Heres a better build for the money.

PSU is better quality and still has good quality while being less expensive.
Ram is much faster and will yield much better performance.
SSD is faster and doubles the capacity.
GPU is a 1660ti rather than a slower 1660.

I had planned for my budget to be at least $1500 but it ended up being around $1200, peripherals included. So i guess more around $1200 would be what I'm comfortable with for a first time build.
