Photo Editing System $600-$800

I am considering a new computer build. This will be my first build. I don't do any gaming.

Primary use: photo editing, general home office

Any opinions about this combination?

    Your motherboard needs DDR2 RAM, not DDR3.
    Here is an inexpensive set that should work for you.

    Other than that, your build looks good!
