This is my first custom PC build, and any comments, thoughts and opinions would be great. I want to have a high enough FPS to be able to capture gameplay and then edit it. Hoping to keep it under $1000 (ideally $850).

Excellent advice, thank you! Any suggestions for anything else? I've been thinking about adding a CPU cooler and maybe even a SSD
