Building a pc for the first time to do a little work from home and a little bit of gaming.

After reading various blogs on building a powerful pc for photoshop i made a list of whats most important.

1st. (Monitor + Calibrator) - this still definitely comes first - i already have one 2nd. Disks 1 ssd for windows boot, and the other for the scratch disc of photoshop 3rd.Fast Ram 4. Video Card- gpu support for photoshop is important 5. Processor- stuck with decent i5 intel. 6. Motherboard

Just want some opinions on the actual components i have chosen- i used pc part picker and picked ones that had a high rating, seemed to be popular and were in my price range. Not sure about a case either- any suggestions welcome - looking to make something that is around £700/800

Thanks in advance

that cpu isn't clockable but you have a z board

that RAM is cas 10 so its slow for 1600

i am also building a photoshop pc. i have done a lot of research myself. those aren't the order of importance that i have seen. everything looks ok to me. you can see my build so far here: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/aubie8/saved/mnbcCJ. some parts are just bigger than yours to keep from having to upgrade anytime soon but looks similar.

good luck!
