I'm putting together a build mostly for Lightroom but maybe eventually some Photoshop. Otherwise it's general duties like web browsing and word processing. I'm trying to future proof a little since I only upgrade once every 5-7 years. I may overclock some but nothing crazy. What do you think of this build? Any suggestions?
The cpu/mobo/ram is a combo deal on Newegg right now. I know I may not need the i7 but am thinking about it in case hyperthreading becomes more prevalent before I upgrade again and the clock speed is higher than the i5 6600. The motherboard should be good if I want to overclock and has good connectivity options.
Thoughts on the build? And if anyone can say if I'd notice any real world difference for the SSD choices that'd be helpful. I'm thinking of the Samsung 850 Evo or Sandisk x400. I can't decide which one to go with and if the Samsung is worth the extra money over cheaper options. Thanks!
