No on the roastwell PSU, get an OCZ Modxstream for about the same price

What resolution are you running at? For photo editing and lite gaming i would suggest an i5 over a phenom II, it will perform significantly better at the photo editing and you can lower the graphics card to have more to spend on the CPU and mobo.

Planning on running 1080
A photo editor friend suggested I get a card with at least a gb, do I really need that much?

Not for photo editing, for gaming yes, the 1GB of vram will help but as you arent rapidly rendering frames during photo editing the added vram wont help much. What do you consider by lite gaming? Medium settings once in a while or would you like to have high settings when you play?
