I'd also suggest looking at another case and dishing out some extra money for a SSD -- you can get a 128GB SSD for just over $100 now. Your operating system and apps (photoshop) will thank you. Still get a sata HDD for storage though.

Here's a good CPU - i5 2500k is a fantastic processor.

I'd also look at getting another heatsink that what is provided --- The Cooler Master 212 Plus is a BEAST and a fantastic value.

Agreed on the CPU, at least a i5, but really, if you can afford it, get an i7. Especially for you are wanting to do.
