No clue what % age on use mean but I like the build. I would change a couple things but the things I would change are just personal preference. Great build :) .

To the OP: I think what everyone is asking is if you can say "30% gaming 70% photo rig" The only thing I would really change is the GPU. IF you can afford it try to get one with 3 to 4 GB of vram. Also bump up the PSU to a 700watt unit. The trend is starting where you will need that much to play at the highest video settings, and it will help if you want to crossfire down the road.

If i didn't have to get a new monitor i woulda raised up the GPU to a better one.
Should i change it to an intel build?

You can change it to an intel build if you want but amd is good. AMD is sometimes considered better for budget builds because some of their cpu's have a better price to performance ratio than intel cpu's.

It will be like 80%gaming and 20%photo.
About the GPU if you could suggest me one that has 3-4 VRAM and doesn't go over the budget that would be great and the PSU i could change it to the S12II 620w if its gunna make any difference

Not sure what country your in but the one you linked is good.

Well ya its 4GB but the one in the build is kinda faster and has 3 fans doesn't have much problems
so are you sure that the 4GB is better?


Both the coolers are good don't worry about two fans or 3 fans they are simply designed differently. Both will cool the card efficiently. The 4GB of vram is definitely worth it, the only thing you lose is a bit of clock speed over the 2gb version of the card and you can overclock so no worries.
