Advice on my PC build for Gaming, Streaming & Video Editing

I'm fairly new to this and I'm looking to build my first PC, which I hope to be rather powerful. I'll mainly be using this PC for Gaming, Streaming & Video Editing.
My budget is around 2000$ and I'm not looking to upgrade any features in the near future (expect if there are major technological advances or in 3-5 years time).
I live in Switzerland and will do my shopping from there and all the parts I listed are available to me in some way with similar pricing.

I've done some research and created a list with parts I believe to be suitable. I am now looking for an expert to look at my list and tell me wether the selection is compatible & reasonable. Feel free to suggest any improvements at all! I'm very open to new ideas since I'm not experienced at all.

Thank you in advance!

Looks almost perfect to me. I'd swap the HDD for an SSD though. Either a SATA SSD such as the Samsung 860 Evo or an nvme SSD which is much faster such as the Samsung 970 EVO Plus.

Apart from that I think it's a solid build! Of course, if you can get your hands on a RTX 3080 which will be available starting september 17th, that would give you a nice performance boost.
