It is my first time building a computer and I would greatly appreciate any input on the parts I have chosen so far. I don't need it to be crazy good, but I would like it to be able to handle some light gaming and photo editing. I have also been considering splurging on an SSD, do you think its worth it?
these are the parts so far:
