RX 580 graphics card with 4gb ddr5 memory. 16gb dram. 1tb hard drive. Ryzen 7 processor. I dont need much for a PC. I just need something thatll work and allow me to play PC games that I own or wish to purchase.

Pretty good, but I would definitely suggest you tried to fit an SSD in there. Even one just for Windows and your core programs makes a HUGE difference in your day-to-day computing.
Also, if you're only using your rig for gaming and stuff like web browsing and word processing, then I'd suggest saving some money by going down to a Ryzen 5 CPU, since almost no games actually utilize the massive core counts of the higher-end Ryzen chips. Unless you plan to do heavy video rendering or 3D modeling then a Ryzen 7 is overkill.

I did plan on doing video editing man. I want to make a career of video editing.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with it, but what games are you trying to play and at what resolution?

Do you not actually own a PC?

Its fine but a bit much for entry-level on the CPU if you ask me. Can easily get away with an r5 or even r3.

I dont. I've been saving to get one though but something came up so I've gotta save again.
