I do a lot of personal work at home. This is replacing a 2011 macbook pro I'm currently using. I would like to run photoshop/3d programs without too much issue. To be honest I know very little about PCs so please feel free to give some advice. I would say this is going to be used for 80% work/20% games. And just to note I usually have Netflix/movies in the background consistently.
Here's my novice reasons for choosing these components:
i7 6700 - Heard it would benefit my photoshop/3d use. Not looking to overclock
Motherboard- Fits my price range/looks good/looks like it will do the job?
Kraken x61 - Reducing noise is something I'm looking for/looks good
RAM- Honestly don't know , placeholder for price range
SSD - speed/because people say so
WD 1TB - extra storage
GTX 1050 - Don't game too much. If I do it's blizzard games or CSGO. Nothing too demanding. Can upgrade in future. Will this work ok?
NZXT s340 Elite - I'm picky and like how this looks
PSU - Don't know, place holder
Would like to keep this around the $1,000 mark. Leaving OS/monitor/keyboard/etc out of the price. Would like to find some deals during the holidays, just need to know what I should be looking for.
