Default Is it Decent?

So my wife is wanting to give Star Wars The Old Republic a try, that and Age of Empires 3 are the only games she plays or will play, aside from that she loves photo editing. Loves most of the free stuff but would like to try Adobes new photo Editing stuff. Seeing as she is not needing a muscle rig do you think this build would work? We are wanting to stay under 600 which I'm going 25 over as it is, and OS is not needed. I would like to see this guy last longer than two years but obviously not trying to future proof it. - ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - CD / DVD Burners - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive - Rosewill RC-400-LX Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45 - EVGA 01G-P3-1351-KR GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Rosewill RCR-IC001 40-in-1 USB 2.0 3.5" Internal Card Reader w/ USB Port / Extra Silver Face Plate - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL - MSI P67S-C43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz 2 x 256KB L2 Cache 3MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I32100

Any advice would be great, thanks in advance.

You don't need a network card, one comes on the motherboard.

I'd get a different case. The Cooler HAF 912 or 922, at least. Wire management is going to be hard on that Antec 900.

I would rather get the Ripjaw X series, but that is just me. - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL
