I am looking at building a new system for editing photos in Adobe, generally from RAW files. And some drawing with a tablet and graphic design. I will also be using it to play things like WOW : Warlords of Draenor and Sims 4. Not intensive gaming I know but more than my current system can handle. I currently have the following parts selected.
CPU Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 5 ATX LGA1150
Memory G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2133
Storage Crucial V4 256GB 2.5" SSD
Western Digital RE2 750GB 3.5" 7200RPM
Video Card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 2GB WINDFORCE
Case Apevia X-Plorer2 Black/Green ATX Mid Tower
Power Supply EVGA 500W ATX12V / EPS12V
The case is pure vanity and will most likely change before I finalize and buy. I am not planning on overclocking so I have not added an additional cooler for the CPU. I am looking to keep it under $1000, though cheaper is always better. I would like to be able to run the games I do play at as high a setting a possible, and have the option to play other as I get interested in them.
This is my first from scratch build so I am a bit overwhelmed, so if you see anything that I have gotten wrong please let me know. Any opinions or thoughts on where I can save some money or spend a tiny bit more to make it better would be welcome. Thank you
