New photo editing / video editing build - FIRST time builder

Recommended Posts

Hi guys im planning on building a PC for mainly photo editing NO Gaming with the occasional video as well, it will also be a general usage PC,


this is also my first PC build, ive watched tons of youtube vids on building and im quite confident in doing it, anyway the parts list i have put together is below and i want your advise.


1) is there anything to change and why

2) is the 500r a good decision based on my uses

3) if i went with the 500r and h100i as planned whats the best config


just a quick note i plan on doing the window mod if i buy the 500r as i i want to make a nice looking pc as it will be on display in my living room, also the theme is along the lines of red/black/gold :)


hope thats not to much to ask many thanks
