Hello, I'm in need of any opinions on how to improve my build and reducing the cost if possible, This is the parts list link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9V72sZ
Thanks in advance.
Since you don't have a liquid cooler I suppose you aren't going to be over locking your cpu so I think this list will make your life easier not too much cheaper but a lot better

It's not cheaper but depending on what you are doing, it can be.
slightly cheaper RAM at the same speeds and CAS latencies
Slightly cheaper SSD, also at the same speed.
Considerably faster GPU
Cheaper PSU that is still outstanding quality. 550W is more than enough for most, if not all, mid to high end builds. For reference, an i7 7700K and GTX 1080 will peak at about 300W power usage.
For windows, get the full version as the license is transferable across different motherboards.
Regarding the GPU, Sony Vegas Pro doesn't do much, if anything with it, as it is a CPU based rendering program. If you are just using it for Sony Vegas Pro, stick with an RX 580/570 as the performance difference will be negligible and you will save some money. If you are using another program that will utilise the GPU or play games, stick with the GTX 1660 Ti as that is faster than the 1060.
