I use this rig to edit videos as well as play games. It works quite well. Right now I am playing through Satisfactory and even while recording it, I get a solid 60+ fps on ultra settings. Do note that I had to cut off one cm of plastic off from the gpu cooler in order to make the gpu fit in the case. The internals of the gpu were not affected as the one cm came from a plastic hood that jutted out from the gpu heatsink.
Also note that the optical drive is completely optional and I am using one that I had just lying around that is around five years old.
