I need your opinion on my new PC

So I'm building a computer part list for my first computer, I want it to be decent enough to run all games available today (high, at a decent fps rate), some amateur video editing (not really heavy stuff, just premiere and some after effects) and electronic music producing. I also program, but you can write code on anything.

Give me your opinions and what things could I change for a cheaper one without compromising quality.

A 1000 watt psu is super overkill. Even if you overclock, add another 280x, and add other stuff, an 850 watt would be more than enough.

Not an overkill if I plan on doing a 3way crossfire, but you're I might change it
