Right now I've got

my goal is to keep it around $900.
I think I'm set on the processor, motherboard, and solid state unless anyone has anything to say on them.
I'm mostly curious about the cpu cooler, type of RAM (I want to have 2 x 8GB, but know nothing beyond that), and the power supply. Are those all sufficient, and good buys?

I plan to use this machine mostly for photoshop, occasional video editing, and occasional gaming.

Also, as far as cases go, I should be fine fitting everything in a mid tower, right? And any suggestions for cases under $50 would be great.

And is now a good time to buy? should I wait for cyber monday or does it not make much difference on the parts i've chosen?

Thanks in advance.
