I can't decide which build I want to choose for my best overall experience. This is my first time building a PC and I'm planning to OC it.

My Goal of the PC build: Causal Gaming (LoL, Overwatch), Good Gaming experience isnt priority but best bank for buck. 4k video rendering and rendering (16GB I've heard its enough?) - Video editing its my priority. And to be able to stream (twitch) and record (obs).

I was told the Ryzen 1700 comes with a cpu cooler, but some say if I plan to OC I would need to buy another one? I was also thinking of maybe getting a Zotac - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB by downgrading 1 or 2 items?

Would like feedback on my build and if I should change/switch any parts around and why.

Budget : Probably $1500 - $1700 range, getting the best performance with solid parts.
 
Here is a few changes I would suggest. Get the 750w for the same price and I would an SLI motherboard. Just get the regular 3200 ripjaw instead of the flarex.

If you can afford it, why not go with the 2nd one. And if you wanted to save some buck you can switch that 2TB hard drive for this 2TB hard drive, paying half of the price for it
