Need help with my new SFF build

Need help to rebuild a new one with a budget of 1k-1.5k
I would like the case to go as small as possible, my last case was NZXT Phantom 410 (very bulky in my room).
appreciate your help and time in this

my usage priority is as ranked:
  1. surf net/listen music on spotify, youtube for long hours/watch movie (ventilation?)
  2. running IT software such as IDE/Data Visualization/RPA tools/Photoshop/Video editor/unity
  3. playing steam basic games, not too intensive (i have consoles for games)

I have these items left from my last build that I can reuse:
  • GFX: MSI GTX 770 2GB Twin Frozr
  • DVD ROM: LG DVD-RW SATA OEM
  • SSD: Plextor M5S 128GB
  • HDD 1: Seagate 3TB Barracuda
  • HDD 2: Seagate 4TB Barracuda
  • OS: Windows 10
  • not 4k Monitor, mouse and keyboard

Your recommendations:
  1. CPU - have been using Intel, would you recommend AMD too?
  2. MB
  3. RAM
  4. Casing
  5. PSU
  6. GFX - maybe can skip?
  7. (reuse) SSD: Plextor M5S 128GB
  8. (reuse) HDD 1: Seagate 3TB Barracuda
  9. (reuse) HDD 2: Seagate 4TB Barracuda
  10. (reuse) OS: Windows 10
  11. (reuse) not 4k Monitor, mouse and keyboard
