cant decide if I should go all the way down to that, since people say the 2700x cooler is so good. I originally didn't want an amd x or an intel k, due to feeling I didn't need it and wanted less power consumption, but was tempted on the 2700x. If not getting the 2700x, I'd consider 1700 and 8700 and slightly possibly 8700k. I'm mostly going to do non-gaming, so was leaning amd.

Would save around $100, but I will likely just keep waiting for a 2700x deal, since it's 20% faster and I am not comfortable attempting overclocking.

You don't need 8 or 6 cores if not gaming. Grab the ones with integrated amd graphics, save your budget.

Already bought a rx 580 and I may possibly be doing video editing. I also got 32gb memory. So I probably did just go way overboard, but I'm interested in editing and I do programming, so it's hard to know what I would need down the line.

I technically can still return the memory and gpu if I really wanted, though.

If you are going to do non-gaming stuff, you may return 580 and get 560 and save bucks there. Memory is ok though, don't return that.
