Photo editing pc build

MKCA

Would like opinions/suggestions from experienced photo editors if these parts work together, and if there is a better build for photo editing. I'm a photographer, not professional, and looking for a system that will last. If there is any way I can reduce the total cost of the build without losing a quality build I'd appreciate any suggestions or recommendations. This is my first build. Am trying to avoid having to resort to an HP Envy 810st, not a bad computer, but in research have learned that I could get a better quality build on my own for the same budget, $1300.

So sorry. Here is the parts link: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/MKCA/saved/V2bcCJ

What softwares do you use for your work?

Everything I have now is old & outdated. Considering Lightroom and Photoshop Elements.

The reason why I ask is because Photoshop is a CPU intensive program, so a GPU won't give you much (if any) performance boost.
