This is my first build in over 7 years and think I have what I believe to be a good setup for my $1,000 budget. I know I still have a few things to add and will be going over maybe another $200, but at this point I am okay with that if it means getting a bit more now so I won't have to upgrade again for a few years. I already have a monitor and keyboard to use.

Would love to know what you all think. I am planning on using this as my everyday PC which means minimal to average gaming, Photo Shop editing, some Premiere editing, streaming throughout my home, and general multitasking.

Thanks for any input.

If I were you I would drop the ssd and get a better gpu.

I see where you are going with that thought. May I ask why you suggested a better card? I'm only asking because I would like to know if this card is kind of sub par in your opinion or is it because you would prefer a nicer card over an ssd. Thanks

The card just seems a bit under-powered for your system, I would personally get a r9 280 or r9 280x For Nvidia I'd probably get a 760 or 770. You can always add in an ssd later, once you get the money. Just my personal opinion.

Well, thank you very much. I appreciate the input and will definitely take your tip into consideration.

Also, from where I sit currently using an Radeon HD 4850, I feel like any card I get that is 2gb or higher will blow me away.

Can anyone here tell me whether or not it would be wise to go with an i7 instead of this since I could be doing more editing and possibly running virtual machines. And if so, is it possible to get a comparable i7 to the i5 I have chosen for the same price?
