New photography build

Hi all,

I am a newbie who is attempting his first build. I am thinking about the following components. The purpose would be mainly for photography and mild gaming. Advice would be greatly appreciated.

CPU: Intel i7 2600k
Mobo: Gigabyte z68xp ud3 with 20gb intel ssd
HDD: dual WD caviar green 2tb in raid 1
GPU: Zotac 50301
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4gb
Case: Cool Master HAF 912 Mid Tower ATX
Monitor: HP zr24w

I'm thinking the gpu might be overkill but I'm willing to live with that. Am I missing anything? Are these components compatible? Like I said, I'm completely new at this so any and all advice is greatly welcome.

  1. What programs are you going to use? It really depends on that. If it is only photoshop then your parts are overkill for want you need.

    560ti isn't overkill.
