If it's for gaming and photoshop, you should consider buying a new monitor as well! Also you have chosen incompatible motherboard, wrong memory and big psu which you won't need!

as far as 6 ram slots goes, the i5 2500k motherboards are dual channel, not triple channel, so you will be limited to 4 slots
