I'm new to PC building. I'm looking for advice on the parts, and whether I need any more parts for the PC to function. I'd also love to slightly cut the cost if at all possible. I intend to primarily use the PC for gaming, image processing, and video editing.

Greetings, what is your intended budget?
Hello Ian, my budget is $1,500.
Do you need a copy of Windows? Right now you do not have it listed.
I do. Thanks for pointing that out :)
Honestly there is not much you can really change in the current parts list in your budget and what you plan on doing with the PC, everything looks solid as-is.
Thank you for your help, Ian. I appreciate you greatly.
You're welcome, if you have any other questions please let us know!
Thank you, magarity! I have switched to a 980 series. Any other changes that you recommend?
Lovely, thanks again!
