I am planning a new build for some time in the winter. I have built several computers in the past, but wanted some input on the current system I am planning. Is it future proof? Is it too much/not enough power?
This PC will be for the long haul (roughly 5-6+ years).
I intend on using it for fairly high-end Gaming, photoshop, programming, etc.

Here are the components I've chosen so far.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146189
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139141
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117562
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487088
MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128835
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231902
Cooler: https://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/147-kraken-x61-liquid-cooler.html

I already have ample storage and all peripherals.
Let me know What needs to be adjusted, Thank You!

You're wasting money on a nice Z170 motherboard and liquid cooler with a CPU that can't be overclocked. You might as well step up to the i5-6600K if you stick with that motherboard and cooler.

i5-6600K

If you don't plan on overclocking then you could go with a cheaper H170 motherboard and a much cheaper CPU cooler.
