$1400 gaming/video editing build (incl. monitors and peripherals)

Hello! I'm looking to replace a stolen macbook pro with around a 1400 desktop. I'd like to start doing a bit of PC gaming and I make some YouTube videos, so also I'd like it to be able to handle rendering pretty quickly. My understanding is they go a bit hand in hand. Now I would also like to have dual monitors, I was thinking about two of the "Asus VX238H 23.0" Monitor" for $111.00, so that leaves around $1175 for the rest of the build. Any help would be great!! Thanks!

solid build! Even has the 1070. This should destroy 1080p editing

The monitors are just as good as the ones that you suggested but they are a lower price
