Budget is 1k for the build

I need help if any parts need to be replaced for something better for the price. Mostly doing this post because of the "errors" i got in Partpicker and want to know if it is a major problem or the website is not updated.

Uses for the Build : Gaming, Video Editing (because of college) and well using it for college and their applications.

Reason of Building: Well a need a new computer since i am using my laptop more and prefer to rely on something better to handle what I am doing. I have a Video Editing class this coming semester and need a computer to handle that since I would not be able to use the computers on campus. They recommended me to get an Apple laptop or Mac, but I would like to use the money for a gaming Pc that can handle the task.

This computer is meant for a bit of everything from gaming, video editing (because of college), and well using it for college. It would need more storage but can be obtained later.

Why wasting money on an aftermarket CPU cooler? The Ryzen 5 3600 stock cooler is good enough.
