I'm looking to build a system primarily for Photoshop/Lightroom (main reason) as well as gaming (e.g. Medal of Honor). I also intend the system to edit video once a while due to work. I came up with a system which I hope you can advise me on. I would look to get a current system. I also hope that this system can last me for the next 2-3 years.
I already have a screen and other computer peripherals which I intend to use; hence, I did not include in my wishlist.
Any suggestions, advice, comments, helpful pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!
That's definitely not a bad start. If you're not going to overclock you don't need a motherboard that expensive. You could go with a full ATX H77 motherboard and save some money there. I definitely get wanting to add Thunderbolt but if you really need it you can get a cheap PCI add in card. I'd also switch out the SSD - Intel SSDs are very overrated and until they get rid of Sandforce I refuse to recommend them.
