This is my first computer build so I'm trying to keep things pretty simple. I'm using it for light photo editing (photoshop elements) and light gaming (Civ5, minecraft, etc.) and Netflix and general school/online stuff. I think I should be okay with the integrated graphics because I'm not going to be doing any heavy lifting in that regard. The only part in the build that I wouldn't want to change is the CPU because I like that particular i3 chip even though a cheaper kind of CPU would probably work for my needs.
I just want a computer that will be decently fast and last for five years or so. Is there anything I'm missing? I'm fine with the price but is there anything I picked that's just overkill that I could cheap out on more? Also I'm using my old monitor/keyboard/etc. so this is the whole list.
