No performance difference but expandability may be very limited with mini-itx case.
For video editing, GPU speeds does not make as huge difference it does with gaming.

The hardware looks okay but if you are new to linux I would not use redhat plus redhat is quite expensive if you go workstation.
Its a enterprise distro only made for businesses really, I would not use it unless absolute stability was your concern but there are far better distributions for that such as Debian or even CentOS which does the same job as redhat without the cost.

AMD Ryzen has a lot going for it really, good multi core and multi thread performance for one and offering a alternative to Intels more expensive line.
As for AMD GPU's may not matter here,. right now in terms of GPU's I would go for nvidia due to cost factor and better driver support.
Mini GPU's are fine
As for your case... yeah I would not do it, sure small is appealing but at the same time its severely limiting.
If you really must go Mini ITX go for one of these:
It has no limitations such as needing a special power supply and offers support for standard HDD's
As for the OS if you want to try linux out i wont stop you however redhat is not the one I would choose.
I say for someone new to linux look no farther than Linux mint.
Mint is for those new to linux and will do what you wish
Davinci Resolve will be fine on Linux mint as linux is linux.
Its how its packaged and presented is why linux has so many flavors to it.
Mint is for newcomers and is well worth it to try.

Yes, I mean dont get me wrong CentOS isnt a bad distro but if you are new to linux I would not use it.
Mint offers a very windows like interface, easy ways to install multimedia codecs and in general is very linux newbie friendly.
CentOS is more for those who are more familiar with linux and is more of a intermediate/ advanced distro, linux has many flavors and levels of ease of use.
Mint, Ubuntu Mate, Zorin, Manjaro
Manjaro, Ubuntu, CentOS
Debian, CentOS, Redhat
Arch, Slackware, Gentoo
This is ranked on difficulty for new users to linux and some distros boarder on both due to how they are presented.

You are very welcome.
Just keep in mind that there is still going to be a bit of a learning curve in linux even with mint but we do have a dedicated linux section here so if you run into anything we can try to assist you.

That Davinci Resolve looks a pretty hardcore bit of software. I think with Linux the distribution that will give you an easiest time is whichever one the developers supply pre-compiled binary installers for. If they only support RHEL and CentOS, then that kind of points you in the direction. It's likely to be possible to get it running on different distributions, but the work involved might be tricky for those new to Linux.
You can always install CentOS (or Mint or whatever) in a virtual machine on your current hardware to test the DaVinci software works as you intended, prior to investing in hardware specifically.

I just want to mention something that might help. Video editing leverages one of the most demanding resource loads out of most other graphic arts packages. This goes double if you plan on doing any rendering; the GPU actually does most of the work, not the CPU. If you are working high res even more so. I suggest you purchase the most powerful card you can afford. Definitely do not plan on using integrated graphics, if the board you select has it. You will not be happy with the performance.
Help Requests: If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me but no guarantee I will respond.
