Hello, I am currently in the process of researching the components for building my own system. This computer will be used for gaming as well as video editing. My budget is around $1000. Here are the parts I have selected so far. I am not planning on overclocking. Any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

These parts are not the best. Do you have an operating system, a monitor, a keyboard, an ethernet cable. Those parts are very overpriced.
