Need some help picking parts for my node 202 build

Hey! So I want to build a sff pc since I just love the look of the node 202. I saw a video of a guy liquid cooling his and I totally want to do that because it looks really cool. Only problem is I don't know which itx gpu to go with. I'm not too much of a gaming enthusiast so 1080p is more than fine for me. Plus, I play most "esports" type games and mmos. My wife sometimes records herself for her youtube so I'm going team blue for this pc.

I had to type this question in a really small box on my phone so im sure I missed something so if you have questions, fire away. Also, Im working with sub $1000 budget.
