Need helping building a pc switching over to light gaming on it for now

What is your budget and currency? $1200
What will you use the PC for? Gaming/Photoshop
Games like Vanis.io(another Agar.io)and steam games not sure of what though
Do you need a monitor? If not, what monitor(s) will you be using? I will need monitors, looking to do a dual monitor
Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals? I will need a keyboard, mouse and headset(I'll probably look for them on offer up)
Do you need an operating system? I have no clue what this means
Will you overclock? Have no clue what this means so im gonna assume no
Anything else we should know? If it goes over $1200 that's fine I can spare another 100 if need be

PCPartPicker Part List

Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB RAW II Video Card ($399.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Cooler Master MasterBox NR600 (w/o ODD) ATX Mid Tower Case ($69.98 @ Amazon)

I'd aim to spend the $1200 on system+monitor, then grab a cheap kb/mouse + headset for now, those are easy enough to upgrade at any point anyway.

So I also want to edit videos for YouTube on it and record my desktop as well, will this still be capable of it if not we can bump the budget up a bit to make it more suitable for it

Yes, the build suggested by 21 will be fine for recording and editing videos. You could look into spending some extra money towards something like the Ryzen 7 2700X for more cores/threads but it's not really necessary. If you were to spend that extra money on an upgrade, I would just go for the Ryzen 5 3600 instead anyway and get better raw performance.
