I feel I've done my due diligence of research, but I'm not familiar with prevailing manufacturer issues, or whether I'm going to encounter any major conflicts between the parts I've selected. I have a hard 1,500USD limit on the build, and was shooting for a white/blue theme, though in the end the build theme isn't my main concern.
I like to think of myself as an "intermediate power user", and the build is meant to be used primarily for gaming, streaming, and video editing. My concerns mostly lie in whether the 2700X is more viable than the 2600X, and the motherboard. I had originally intended to work with a 1070Ti (I've gone with AMD GPU upgrades to machines in the past) but after a price jump in the model I was eyeing, I went to the 2070.
Cyberpunk 2077 is also something I am very concerned with being able to run on higher settings, so some futureproofing was in my mind.
