Hey,

So I haven't owned a computer for about 3 years since now my HP laptop decided to fry itself, but have recently quit my job to try and get back into more creative work and thus need a PC.

I'm looking at building a system that will enable me to edit video (stable at 4k) with a smooth timeline (not too worried about export times but want buttery smooth scrubbing on the timeline), be able to edit pictures using Lightroom and Photoshop and get back into coding for web creation.

To get to the point these are the specs I am currently looking to build
Case: Nzxt H500 (love the minimalist design)
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix x470-F Gaming
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
CPU Cooler: From what I've researched the stock cooler will be sufficient without overclocking so am thinking of just using that for the time being.
Power Supply: Corsair rm 750x
Storage: 970evo m.2 500gb for boot drive and applications. ( will purchase a second ssd at a later date for files)
Memory: HyperX HX430C15PB3K2/32 32 GB 3000MHz (was on motherboard compatibility and apparently Ryzen has some issue with RAM - hope this is sufficient?)
For fans I'm going with two Corsair ML 140 Pros as intakes at the front and two ML 120 pros as exhaust fans at the rear, creating a sort of neutral/positive airflow (I think).

For the GPU I'm kinda holding fire to see what the rtx 2060 does with pricing. Ideally I'd like a 1070ti based on cuda cores but the price is over £550 so might lean towards an rtx if they stick to their MSRP? If you have any suggestions on better options I'd appreciate it. I'd like something stable at 60fps at max 2k so if there are better options I'm all ears.

Does this seem like a suitable build for my needs?

Cheers
 
X470/B450 has very good ram compatibility with BIOS Axxxx code updates. My pick:

NVME ssd does not help too much in editing, normal sata is good enough. 500 gb for OS, game and software caching. 1 tb is solely for material. Crucal MX500 is on par with Samsung EVO 860.

Yes, UK. Total budget is around £1,500 - these current specs are about £1,098 without a graphics card. The motherboard QVL didn't mention any 32GB ram at 3200 - only 3000 so not sure which would be appropriate given research on Ryzen RAM compatibility.
