2, ADATA XPG GAMMIX S70 Blade 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME SSD;

What software are you using?
5400 RPM drives are pretty slow. 4TB disk is pretty small for a video editing oriented build.
You have $200 in the budget, you might consider a 2TB SATA SSD as working space. Then copy finished work off to the 4TB drive. An MX500 2TB is around $160 on amazon right now.

Do you really need a small pc?
Pre built pc's do not expand well.
In particular the power supplies used are of minimal quality and not suitable for running strong graphics cards.
Then, in this case, a small downdraft cooler is not likely to keep a 12700 sufficiently cool when all threads are in use.
The cooling ability of the case looks weak.
I think you can do better.

Hi,

Thank you so much for the advice.
Will be using ShotCut for the time being, Yes 5400RPM drives are slow, I was thinking of getting a SATA SSD for the video editing.
Cheers
