I was originally going for a prebuilt pc but I may take a shot at assembling one myself because the price vs quality/what you get is way better. I'm brand new to building a custom pc, can y'all list parts for a build that would be best for Video Editing and Gaming? Include a monitor in the build if possible!

Thanks in advance guys!

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 3200G 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor ($99.99 @ Best Buy)
Motherboard: ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($78.98 @ Amazon)
Memory: Patriot Viper 4 Blackout 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4-3200 CL19 Memory ($38.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Crucial P2 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($50.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Deepcool MATREXX 30 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12III 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($44.99 @ Best Buy)
Monitor: LG 22MK430H-B 21.5" 1920x1080 75 Hz Monitor ($84.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $433.92

Pricing is pretty out of whack right now, this is about the best you'll do with $450 getting new parts and a monitor.

If you're okay going a little over budget(up to around $500 total), and don't mind buying used, I would grab an RX 470/570 or RX 480/580 off eBay, you should pretty easily get one ~$75. This will drastically improve performance.
If you get a discrete GPU, then you can also save a little bit of money by getting this RAM instead of the 2x4GB kit;

I would also absolutely try to get a Ryzen 3 3100 instead of the 3200G but I can't see a 3100 in stock anywhere other than Amazon, and they want $160 for it(it should be $100). If you get the R3 3100 though, you will need a discrete GPU like an RX 470/480/570/580, it will not work without a discrete GPU.
