You will need at minimum 16GB RAM for the Photoshop and Video work you plan to do. Photoshop in particular is a memory hog. There are some good articles over on the Puget Computers website about various Adobe products and CPU, RAM, GPU considerations: https://www.pugetsystems.com/all_articles.php Speed of RAM is less important than amount. I don't do video editing and cannot comment on what the needs are. You can take a look at my sig line and see what I built three months ago when I updated my workstation. I have no issues with Photoshop and this rig.

Edt, don't skimp on the PSU, id get at least a 650W Gold, think I've seen them less than $90, but get a good unit, don't skimp!

 

Please don't recommend PSUs based purely on nothing but wattage and the 80+ Certification because this doesn't help select a good quality-made PSU while avoiding the ones that would be a rip-off.

 

The PSU he selected though would be WAY more than good enough for this build and for what he will be using it for (yes, I am well aware of what PSU he selected). A high-end 650W PSU would be a massive and stupid waste of money because those PSUs are much better suited for people who have heavily overclocked their CPU (at least) and are also heavy gamers.

I'm sure the OP can think and read PSU reviews for them selves, or ask for them selves, more than a few brands better than others. For a single GPU setup, a 650w Gold is a great medium and cost, why skimp on and chance ur system for a cheap pos/under powered PSU!

I don't think you're understanding, and again, the 80+ Certification is not an indication of quality (neither is the brand, for that matter). I don't want to get off topic, but I can list some 650W Gold-rated PSUs that are a waste of money. I can find Gold-rated PSUs in general that are actually complete garbage.

 

All I'm saying is, recommending a PSU isn't as simple as you seem to think.

I owe it all to OCN and the serious PSU experts we used to have on here (their lives became too busy for OCN).

OP since your going to be in Chicago, go by Microcenter and pick up a i5-4590 $159.99 instead of the i5-4460 for $174.89.

http://www.microcenter.com/product/432161/Core_i5-4590_33GHz_LGA_1150_Boxed_Processor, saves you a little and gets you a better CPU
