if it is the latter it is fine.. if it is going to a place of business i would strongly suggest reconsidering.
That rig will be at home and it will be used primary for Adobe indesign and illustrator. Plus games.
What you think?
It will do fine.
would be utterly overkill for an office computer.
16gb Ram should be the minimum, adobe will want to use alot if you let it.
certain apps in the Adobe CC suite will want 2-4 gb ram PER core being used.
I'd opt for a larger SSD(better iops with current gen ssds) and a Smaller HDD( 2-4 TB should be more than enough, multiple Drives on a hardware raid controller will yield better performance), I would opt for a 600w-700w PSU apposed to an 850w unless they want to upgrade to SLI
1866-2133 ram.. not every FX can do 2400mhz. and in the capacity that you need does not make it any easier on the chip, I'd suggest the 1866
case is personal preference.
The saberkitty it IMHO a little much for a primarily work rig. m5a99x pro, or a UD3 would be a cheaper alternative.
considering it is a primarily for work.. i wouldn't be overclocking too much. (my work profile was Stockish setting until i really learned what these chips can do reliably)
a 980 wouldn't exactly be my default option for adobe. If you can pick up a used first gen Titan you'd be better off. (due to the vram and bit-bus) a first gen titan should be along the same price as a higher end 980
and if they want to be super fancy wait for the Titan X, 12gb vram would be adobe's wet dream
