Hi everyone!

Currently researching a gaming / designing (Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop ) PC. The most I'd be able to spend is $1800, but I may be able to go higher if need be. I started a build but I'm not sure if there is anything I can / should upgrade and to what those upgrades should be. I'm looking to purchase the parts in the next week or 2. Any advise would be much appreciated!

Here is what I have so far:

There is no difference in performance even if you activate later on. You will get all the necessary updates anyways...
