Default How to build a combo computer?

I am trying to put a computer together that will handle gaming as well as photo/video editing. I have $2000.00 US to spend. I have watched a ton of YouTube videos and now I have information overload. I am by no means an expert in this. Here is a link on what I have put together from PC Parts Picker. Any help would be appreciated.

Decent looking build..:
- maybe a more up to date Mobo in line with that Threadripper (Asus Hero IX X or Xi..not sure where there at)
- Consider an NVMe supported M.2 for faster speeds vs M.2 SATA
- Seasonic PSU is pretty good I believe....(go modular)
- You wil defintely need a few more fans


Nice case btw

looks pretty good and Seasonic is the king of PSU IMHO they make many of the great PSU we like from other companies I only buy Seasonic. Only thing I can say is you might want to buy a 1700 and overclock to save some coin then upgrade to zen 2 when it launches later this year besides that it looks great
