Planning on gaming and some video editing with Sony Vegas. Originally, my choice was an Intel build but following the GPU price increase, I decided to save money by going with an AMD build (CPU, Motherboard) and using the spare money to buy a GTX 1080.

Now that the GTX 1070 is much more affordable, I must make a choice: AMD or Intel? The computer is mainly for gaming at 1080p 144hz, playing games like Warhammer Total War at 60+ FPS at High-Ultra quality.

Note: I am not planning on overclocking because I would probably break something (Im not too smart when it comes to computers)

Those are good builds. I would tell you to go with the AMD build. I have taken your build and used it to create something similar. I'm not telling you to go with my build over yours but you can definitely use mine as a reference guide of sorts for understanding how to get more bang for your buck. I chose a GTX 1070 for you because you said you are gaming at 1080p and doing some light video work and the 1070 is perfect for that. Since you are not overclocking I chose a more basic motherboard to save you some money. Overall I gave you more storage, a better power supply and a better processor for about the same price.
