~$1000 Quiet Rendering/Gaming PC

Mainly using this for Ableton Live, plus maybe some streaming. Gaming isn't tremendously important, since anything would be a step up from the laptop I have now. This is my first build so any and all advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

A little bit higher end, and only $6 more.
