Hey guys, so I'm pretty new to building PC's, and I know this has probably been asked 100s of different times in 100s of different ways, but would this rig work?

 

My goal is having a good enough PC for gaming on a 1080p ultrawide monitor at around 75 FPS, and maybe in the future High to Ultra at 1440p. I'm also a video editor but I only edit in 1080p. Also, what else would I need?

With your budget, you could afford much better hardware. You could afford to go all-SSD, and get a 1080Ti. I'd say the Ryzen 7 2700x has an edge with multithreaded applications like video editing and rendering, as well as multitasking.

With this, you could play games at 1440p several years from now, and when that eventually falls short (SEVERAL years I'll bet) just get a 2nd 1080 ti for SLI (which should be pocket change by then), and you're good for another several years.

However, keep in mind that this is a little extreme for futureproofing- if you don't want to worry about upgrading for a VERY long time.

And wait a little while before buying a 1080 Ti. The announcement of the new RTX 2080 card alone will make it cheaper, and the release will drop that price like a sack of potatoes off a construction crane.
