After using Dell Studio 15 Laptop for 8 years I decided to move on and switch to Desktop machine rather than going for powerful laptop or Mac. The main use was going to be Adobe CC (Photoshop and Lightroom) with additional plug-ins like Nik, Perfect Effect and so on.
When decided to build I had no idea about the latest trends and parts so after searching for more than 1 month going through several builds on PCPartPicker, Toms Hardware and other blogs I decided to go with the new line up of Intel processors.
CPU - reason behind choosing 5820K was ofcourse budget and since I was not going to use multiple Graphic Cards I saved some money over those additional PCI lanes.
CPU Cooler - No specific reason to choose H100i but since I got a good deal I ordered one
Motherboard - Same thing here I do not wanted to go with the top of the line or the Delux mobo because of the budget and that's why I chose X99-A which I think decent mobo for budget Photo editing machine
Memory - Got a good deal for this DDR4 ram and 16 GB is enough for the type of work that I do
Storage - I was already having one 250GB SSD and 750GB hybrid drive which I decided to use as Photoshop Scratch Drive and other one for Data (I know it is small). Purchased new 730 series Intel SSD with I think was a good deal to use as main OS disk. I would be adding couple of disks of 2TB in RAID 1 for Photo Storage.
Video Card - This was again debatable point for me. After lot of read and research I decided to go with 750Ti 2GB superclocked model. Reason to go with EVGA was price, no external power required and the size.
Case - I am sure you will not like this case but in my case I don't have stability and if I need to move to my home country I don't want to pack the case. Rather I will purchase a good case if I move out
Power Supply - Got a good deal so picked this 850W PSU.
OS - So far I don't see any issues with 8.1. Runs smooth.
I hope you like this build. Please do let me know in case of any suggestions which I will consider in future mods.
