Hey everyone, I am looking for advice on a build I have set up on pcpartpicker.com. It is my first build, so I am pretty excited about that. Just looking for opinions and advice from a more experienced community. Check it out and let me know what you think. I have been looking at parts since around may just waiting for the right time to buy and saving money. Gaming is the priority with video editing and streaming coming in second but also important. Budget is $1500ish, I am fine going over budget if need be.

Approximate Purchase Date: early next week

Budget Range: $1500, but no worries going over on good parts

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, streaming, video editing, minecraft server hosting sometimes

Are you buying a monitor: Yes, any recommendations for great gaming monitors would be awesome.

Parts to Upgrade: New Build

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon.com

Parts Preferences: Intel cpu, and nvidia for gpu

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Yes, in the future

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: I already have a 2tb external hard drive, which lets me get the 256gb SSD. Also, case I am still unsure of. Looking for a great air cooled case with lots of room for expansion and cable management.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Gave away my last computer in anticipation of my first build.
