Hi everyone. I'm a newbie in pc building and have been looking to make the move from my worn out macbook to my own built PC.
I'll be mainly using it for video editing (Da Vinci Resolve), with some PC gaming (with mods) and streaming.
I've used the posts in Tom's Hardware and some other google search's to help me pick the right ones, but I'd also like people's input on the parts I've picked (if you think there are better parts or even better parts for cheaper). I haven't added the case to it yet as I wanted to gather all the parts first so I can sort of judge the size needed.
Link below.

I made some adjustments, to get you more storage, and a better cooled/clocked gpu. I also picked faster ram, which Ryzen really likes.
