Hi everyone,

This is my first build ever and consider my a self a complete noob. This is my absolute budget and cannot go over this price. Goal: -Please help me either improve the performance and/or lower the cost.

Uses: -High end gaming, i.e Witcher 3, very high/ultra settings without hair works, Fallout 4 Max settings, etc -1080p gaming, not rich enough for 4k gaming yet -Light video editing

SlI not that important but do plan on overclocking. If you guys need more info then ask away. If you think the build is fine as well just leave a quick comment if possible. Thanks in advance and any help is appreciated.

Not really many ways to improve without adding budget. 212 EVO would be the first thing I'd get rid of, but all the better coolers are obviously more costly.

Just wanted to know if the build will work fine and IF I can improve it or switch out some parts for better performance without adding budget. If not thats cool too. Thanks
