I need the Part List for my new build checked!

This is my part list: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/RtpHf8

I'm not super knowledgeable/confident with computers. But from what I've read building one doesn't seem like the worst thing in the world! I just need someone to review my build. PCPartPicker says there is no incompatibility with any of my parts, so that gives me hope. However, I just want to know whether this is the best value for money I can be spending for my particular build.

Basically I hope this build of PC will enable me to do some fairly heavy video editing with ease. This is my main priority since I'm a film student.
I'm not a huge gamer but would like to be able to play something like Fortnite with it every now and then.

Does my build need any changes? Do I have anything unnecessary that I could be saving on? I would really really appreciate someone, or even multiple people to take a look and let me know :)

  1. Building a system? Not rocket science ;) It's going to be a memorable experience and self rewarding.

    Being a film student, what sort of apps will you be using? Being a film student, I'm assuming you're going to be doing a lot of experimental/short length video's but you might not be specifically limited to using Adobe's Premiere Pro.

    Swap the ram to DDr4-3200MHz, getting a Cryorig H7 cooler, you wont need an optical drive in this day and age and I think we could refine your system much better than what you have. Mind sharing the necessary info after following this thread?

    Here we go :)

    Approximate Purchase Date: This Week

    Budget Range: $1000-$1500 AUD (will push for slightly more if I have to)
    System Usage from Most to Least Important: Heavy Video Editing (using programs such as the Adobe suite, including Premiere and After Effects. Protools, DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer...), Moderate Gaming (just to be able to play Fortnite relatively smoothly would be great), online streaming, web browsing, using Microsoft Office etc.

    Are you buying a monitor: Yes

    Parts to Upgrade: Building from scratch

    Do you need to buy OS: Yes

    Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com ... whatever is most affordable and reliable :)

    Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

    Parts Preferences: I've heard Ryzen 7 1700K is great for video editing :)

    Overclocking: Maybe

    SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

    Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

    Additional Comments: Would prefer the tower to be smallish because I don't know how much desk space I'm going to have at my new house. But I won't be picky if it can't be condensed.

    And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Currently have a dual-core laptop and it is incredibly slow. Won't run any serious video editing programs at all. Moderate gaming on it is hopeless. Decided that building my own Desktop would be the most valuable, cost effective way of having a great-performing machine :)
