Additional Comments:

This is my first build so I'm just wanting to make sure I haven't overlooked anything obvious here. I mainly want the computer to be fast for Photoshop, video editing and maybe a few games.

I won't be purchasing it right now, but I'm hoping maybe to catch some deals over the next few weeks.

You can save a little on the PSU since that rig will run fine on a 500watt PSU and the 520watt version of the NEO ECO is $10 less.

ok, cool! I have done some combo deals on newegg to bring the price down even more. One of them included this PSU:

will it be sufficient for the i5 and 5770?

That is not a good PSU and should be avoided.

Yes and it is a quality PSU! The GTX460 1GB is a nice jump from the HD5770.
