Building my first PC and wanted to make sure I get all the feedback I can in order to build it "right" the first time around. This build will be for general use and video editing.

Parts were picked out by a friend, however, just wanted a second opinion to ensure I'm getting the most for my money.

Budget is <1400

The ALTERNATIVE: (should performance come FIRST)

For video editing I would target an 8-core Ryzen chip - especially if superior "export rendering" speeds are desired.

This can be achieved with both the Ryzen 2700X or 1700/X. The premium charged for the 2700X may not be entirely justified but with speedier single-core performance out of the box + stock turbo charge supremacy including a compatible and more than adequate stock cooler (with RGB) included + better optimised multi-core simultaneous loads for increased render throughput = something definitely worth consideration!

32GB batched RAM on a dual channel mobo at this point may also be a relevant requirement depending on your workflow, file size or number of projects on the go.

NVME SSDs are not necessary unless you're shifting large files on the regular and can benefit from NVME speedier transfers. If you can increase your budget I would swap the 500GB SATA SSD added below for a 1TB unit (preferably).

A couple of case fans to add, if either the initial/above spec is approved

EDIT: if you fancy sticking with RGB RAM, these modules come at premium of 30 bucks on top https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/rRHRsY/gskill-trident-z-rgb-32gb-2-x-16gb-ddr4-3000-memory-f4-3000c16d-32gtzr
