Is this build okay for a 1080p film editing "suite"?

As much as I love my laptop it's just not powerful enough to handle the intensive programs I need to run like Adobe Premiere. For this reason I'm looking to build a PC which can import, render, chop and change, then output 1080p footage smoothly and quickly. I'd like to be able to have enough power for two monitors, maybe three later on. I won't be processing or outputting 4K quality material so my hardware should/can reflect that. I was hoping for some guidance on what works and what doesn't. I'd like to keep it under $1,000 (~£800) if possible. Thanks for your help :)

The SSD would primarily be used as a boot disk, for the OS and programs like Photoshop and Premiere. Footage would most likely be stored on the 1TB hard disk. Therefore I wouldn't need a great deal of storage on the SSD, just enough to boot, put programs on and keep a few essential files on.

Yeah I play games occasionally but I'm not massively into it. Nothing hugely power-hungry, anyway. Does Adobe Premiere not take advantage of the more powerful GPU? Thanks for your help.
