Couldn't quite get it into the $700 range (was thinking USD prices and got slapped with much higher CAD ones). :P It still needs an operating system (like the other list below) but it is about as small as I would go if you plan on doing video editing.

I may make adjustments based on what software you use and what games you play. Would you mind sharing the details of how you would use this? (DaVinci Resolve or Adobe Premier Pro CC, or Minecraft, Assassins Creed, Etc.?)

If you think your work will be mare taxing, it may be worth it to wait until you have budget closer to $900-$1200. You could get a much better build in that range.

Breakdown of my choices:

CPU: I picked the rest of the components first, then put the AMD Ryzen CPU in that got close to the budget. Ryzen is my go-to line of CPUs for any build.

MB: MSI is my go to motherboard and GPU brand, so I found their cheapest B450 Motherboard.

Memory: Corsair is the brand I prefer for everything else (aside from HDD). So I found a good option of RAM from them. Their DDR4-3200 runs really well with my Ryzen 2700 system. I have 32GB and am soon adding two more sticks for 64GB. 16GB is the minimum I would recommend to anyone that will be doing video editing.

Storage: At first I had a Corsair MP510 480GB M.2 SSD but opted to go with a larger capacity HDD instead. Western Digital is my favorite. I have this hard drive running as the storage drive in my video editing system. Works great so far.

GPU: Tried to find the best balance between RAM and Price. I have an 8GB GTX 1070 that runs DaVinci really well for me, but it was too expensive for this build. I was excited to find an 8GB offering from AMD that might work well for it. I honestly don't know though. It could be completely different powered RAM. But hopefully it would run it good. Hit up the GPU threads and ask for comparisons or suggestions.

Case: Corsair + Cheap = This choice. It has a fine selection of I/O ports, good options for cable management, a PSU shroud, and a little hint of RGB (which is always a fun option to have).

PSU: Corsair, again, always a good brand in my opinion. It is semi-modular, which is nice. Has enough power to allow room for some expansion later on.
