Hi all,

please let me know the whether the list that i came up with will be sufficient enough for surfing + music editing+ photo editing and gaming . I am not a hardcore gamer so i don't play game a lot but i want to be able to play like the high game when i can (works and life get me too busy to really spend a lot of time in one sitting): witcher3, skyrim, batman, etc). I love to play emulator as well and plan to use it for running older games on emulator PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Try adding another stick of 4GB or 8GB then your good to go. The I7 will help in rendering. Also you should get two GPU's Instead of one maybe make the 4GB to two R9's or something. Its like 1 brain or two brains.
