Hello. My dad will be using this computer for photography work (Photoshop, and other Adobe programs). Yes, I know the AX760 is complete overkill, but we might be upgrading this later on. Will also be painting the exterior of the H440 black with a matte finishing. Thanks for your opinions in advance. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/negative_codezZ/saved/RLBhP6

The only tip I can give you is get 2x8gb RAM, as this allows you further upgrades.

and I don't know why you picked that Sata 3 storage??? additionally its more expensive than more up to date one.

Here's WD 1TB Caviar Blue 64MB cache Sata 6 or even better WD Caviar Black

Edit: btw I've checked 2x8gb RAMS Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8gb 2400 about 40$ cheaper

Your memory has a CAS of 11 which is 20% slower than CAS of 9.

Find new RAM, filter for DDR3-1866, 1.5V, Cache Latency = 9.

Don't forget to update your post or post the new list.

You can use "System Build" / "Export" to copy/paste your list.

I noticed the combo. Then, I have ALWAYS used the AX series from Corsair and never failed on me, so sticking.
