Looking to make my first build. Rig is going to be used for photoshop and other graphic design apps. Some gaming(mw2,left4dead,etc), no serious marathon sessions or anything. Multi-screen, cd/dvd burns, music download and streaming. Let me know where i went wrong or what is a better fit or if the rig i am looking at is solid >.<

The i5-750 is LGA 1156, and the moherboard you have shown is 1366: either select an i7-9xx or select another motherboard. If you go for 1366 you will also want a triple channel kit for the ram, too.
