I have two parts lists with the only differences being the CPU/Cooler/Mobo. Purpose is a lot of photo editing, some video editing, maybe... MAYBE some casual gaming. The Intel version is about $170 more expensive, taking me slightly over my target budget of $1500 all up. Worth it?

(yes, the monitor, keyboard, and mouse have to be part of the budget)

AMD VERSION:
