700 dollar gaming/work build, suggestions wanted.

This is my first build, and I primarily would like to use it for gaming; however for work, I do look at large image files (~10gb), so if you can keep that in mind in your suggestions as well I would appreciate it.

Let me also say I have very little interest in overclocking, and I plan on upgrading the video card soon, but I have a 700 dollar budget now, and I already have a 7750 I can use, so I wanted to get the most for my money elsewhere. If you can recommend a graphics card upgrade that would best utilize these parts however, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your time.

Why a xeon?

Also, what about a hard drive or a hybrid drive?

What resolution are you going to be playing at?

The xeon, mainly because i wasnt planning on overclocking, but I dont know if thats the right way to go.

As far as a hard drive. Right now on my current system I am using sub 200 GB, so I felt the 205 would be fine, but I would definitely add a 1 or 2 Tb hard drive if i needed the space.

1080,I dont have a monitor that will support higher, but I want to play on the highest settings possible. I know that will be limited until I upgrade the GPU
