are you kidding? Ram is way cheaper than a year ago. It used to be $200+ for a 16gb kit of ram. Now you can snag a decent 16gb kit for around $100

Changes

  • Way more storage. 2tb of sata ssds and a m.2 drive on top for a boot drive

  • got rid of your ll120 fan since you can't use the rgb without a command pro.

I believe a ssd would be better than a hard drive for editing videos.

I think there was a LTT review that said that the 660p ssd's had short life spans

Edit: also that gpu isn't one of the binned ones and won't do as well in overclocking and might not last that long in the long run.

I'd suggest looking into a better gpu. It's a low end 2080ti even though that's a high end gpu. Look for one of the binned ones. They might cost more but they'll probably be worth it more in the long run

Usually HEDT is higher core and thread count(i.e. Threadripper or the x299 platform)

Hey champ, you're not gonna be able to see anything since the cpu doesn't have onboard graphics and there isn't a gpu. Also, NvME works better in heavy write and read environments such as data centers. It probably won't help most normal people.

you probably don't need that highly rated of a psu. otherwise, it looks really good. I'd suggest using Lian-Li's own vertical gpu bracket since they made it for that case.

get rid of the fans and find a case with included fans. also get rid of the gpu for now and use a 2400g. it'll do pretty well and give you enough cash to try and buy other things or wait until you earn more money

squeezed some aesthetics back in by removing somethings like the wifi adapter(there's onboard wifi in the motherboard) and the speakers (only 2.1 ch sound when you have headphones that are 7.1???)

You'd be better off with a ryzen apu as they offer way better price to performance. you might be able to cut corners on some other parts of the list though. and you can still overclock this
