I literally just copied my first build. It does great and I love it very much. The NZXT S340 is a breeze to build in. It stays quiet and cool and cable management is awesome. Color preference is all you. There's black, white, black and red, black and blue and white and purple available -- I just went with the purple because I like it.

The fans are also up to you, I do recommend them but they aren't absolutely necessary. It stays relatively cool with just the two 120mm fans that come with the case. The 1060 destroys games in 1080p. Most games play well over 80FPS in high/ultra and I play mostly shooter and survival games. The CPU is overclockable as well if you wanted to squeeze more power out of it later on. I'm not sure what editing and rendering you're doing but the Ryzen 3 1300x is great but perhaps 6 cores would be better for you as I don't render. I do use a little bit of photoshop and lightroom and this CPU handles it just fine.

The only changes I would make if I were you is to get a better motherboard. It's great and it works for me but I do recommend an Asus even if you have to spend an extra 20 or 30 dollars on one. Also, get an SSD if at all possible. A smaller 250-500GB would go great with everything else. Lastly, I have a WIFI adapter because I have to use WIFI unfortunately. Your experience may vary. Plus, there's two RGB strips in there but again, all up to you on that.

Check out my build for pictures if you'd like.

On accident this build was $1000 on the dot, but it definitely should get the job done.
