Help me build a Gaming/Video editing PC for Youtube (Budget - $1000-$1200)

Hey guys i'm new here and never in my life have built a P.C. I'm still trying to learn and teach my self by watching videos. But right now i'm completely clueless and i wanna start a YouTube gaming channel and i would appreciate it if anyone can help me build a P.C. between $1000-$1200 that is good for high end gaming (at least better than PS4) and video editing/rendering. If you guys have any questions for me let me know. Thanks!

Edit- Also some things that may be help is I plan to edit using Sony Vegas Pro 2013; i would like to be playing at least 60 FPS and 1080P and would like to have Duel-Monitors.

    Hold on, you did want dual monitors right? Because this is not the right build if you did.

    What is the difference between the two CPU's? Would it be fine if i still stuck with Intel? Or do I have to change to AMD for duel monitors?

    I stuck with AMD because of your budget, it's a very capable processor games just aren't optimized too well for these processors yet. The extra 2 cores will help you in multi tasking and this processor will be faster for video rendering etc.

    Ahh i understand. Hmm I mind going a bit over the budget for the I7. So if u stick with the I7 everything else is good to go?

    Nope, you'll need to change motherboard and possibly also RAM.
    I reassembled the parts for an i7, you can get it for under 1200$.

    I'd prefer and recommend the i7, honestly AMD has done a very good job with Ryzen processors but as I said the games just aren't optimized well enough for them.
    The i7 7700 will thrash the 1600x in gaming performance.
  21. Although 24" is a nice size for monitors do these not seem great to me after doing some reading. You could first get one good monitor and add another one later on or get some other choices looking at your budget.
    I always hesitate to make a new build if one is decent and all should be seen as a guidance,but made some changes anyway to show what i mean,

    Updated the Intel build as well for that good and cheaper ram.At least buy that for the price it is.:)
    I did change the storage space to less,i can't say for sure how much you need doing what you want.I don't render or edit personally.
    I did use a smaller and a slightly larger screen,the larger for gaming,the smaller for whatever you want on that one,still both 1080P.
    Added a "Z" board while at it and some faster ram.
    Did get very close to that budget limit and even just a little over.The next monitor is abit cheaper and is still a nice gaming screen,
    https://pcpartpicker.com/product/CWFPxr/asus-monitor-vx238h
    get's you truly under budget.Remember that the price of the cheapest of those screens is also the price for a decent 240gb ssd.

    I also need to say that even while the i7 beats the Ryzen at games it (Ryzen) still will give more than 60fps which is enough when looking at these monitors since 60hrz.

    A Ryzen build,

    The 1600(X) would make this cheaper.The 1600X would need an additional cpu cooler.

    Updated the Intel build as well for the ram,it is very nice for the price and worth buying anyway.:)
