Looking for gaming/video editing build.

Hello! I'm currently looking for a video/gaming build of a PC. I'm willing to pay max $ 1,000. Other than that I want it to run games at achievable frames and record the games being played for YouTube. Which is why I need it to be for editing

  2. Based on srimasis' build, here's another storage option that saves a bit of money, and provides similar performance. With the additional money you can upgrade your camera for gaming videos ;)

    I've upgraded your case and PSU, which I see as the foundation of a build that can grow as your needs grow. I used a semi modular PSU for my first build, and full modular for my second, and it made cable management a lot better.
