Hello, thanks in advance for any input on my upcoming build. Will dabble in Photoshop and video editing in the future so going with 16gb ram. Also the 8 core is a good bundle with the motherboard at Microcenter.

That looks like a very solid build, however i would change the video card to an AMD R9 290x as you get more performance per dollar
