First build - film editing & gaming

Hi, this is my first build and I wanted some second opinions before I go ahead and start buying parts. I need to be able to run editing software, like Avid, smoothly with two monitors. And I like to game too. Mostly I'd like to make sure everything is compatible and right for the build I need? Is anything bottlenecked, or is there anything that will work for me and save some money?

Thank you!

Spending 595 on a 980ti is insane. The GTX 1070 is way much cheaper and a better option. You can even get a GTX 1080 for that price and performance is better.

AVOID the NEX G1 psu which is not a good choice.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! The Bequiet dark rock pro 3 cooler WILL BLOCKED the first pci-e slot on that motherboard. You need the noctua NH-D15s.

You are overspending on the SSD and HDD

This is a much better build and will save you some money
