This build is for a friend, all prices in US, Micro-Center about 3 hours away so unless its a super deal, not really worth it.

gaming not too intense as far as I know, but he will be editing videos and images. Monitors, keyboard and mouse not needed, would like to go $850 on the build so the monitors are easier to stomach but he knows what he wants already for those.

At Microcenter: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 is $80 (can save $30 more on bundled motherboard) ASRock AB350 Pro4 AM4 ATX AMD Motherboard is $65

Total for $114.98. Might be worth the trip over to Microcenter if they have everything else in stock considering they'll price match to online stores. Worth checking the returns and refurbished deals thre too. What store location is closest to you?

He's in north AL so it's prob one of the Atlanta locations, but I'm not sure which.

I'd recommend checking on his location and then trying to build the above parts list at that store. The 1700x is only $150 so you could get CPU/Mobo for only 185. This list includes a fast CPU, better GPU, and faster NVME SSD main storage for video editing.
