Whats your breakdown for each use (Ie how much % gaming, editing, etc).
For photo editing, youll want a secondary drive for bulk storage (an HDD will work for this).
16GB of RAM is a solid start, but may leave you wanting more.

If photo editing is a primary use, what software suite do you use to edit? Some may benefit from an Nvidia card, others may not.

Thanks for your inputs.
I would use the system 30% for gaming, 40% for editing and rest for basic productivity.
I intend to use Adobe Photoshop/ Lightroom, Cyber link power director mostly.
