$1400 gaming/video editing build (incl. monitors and peripherals)

Hello! I'm looking to replace a stolen macbook pro with around a 1400 desktop. I'd like to start doing a bit of PC gaming and I make some YouTube videos, so also I'd like it to be able to handle rendering pretty quickly. My understanding is they go a bit hand in hand. Now I would also like to have dual monitors, I was thinking about two of the "Asus VX238H 23.0" Monitor" for $111.00, so that leaves around $1175 for the rest of the build. Any help would be great!! Thanks!

Cheaped out a little on peripherals to maximize the performance of the PC. Can always adjust a few small parts to get in better peripherals or add down the line. The 650w PSU is overkill for this build, originally had in the 550w, but kept in as it will allow for SLI down the line if you choose. Kept the dual monitors in there for you, but the 1070 would allow for better than 1080p gaming, so that is choice. Here is a start for you
