I clicked on each link you posted, used my trusty orange calculator, and came to a $755 total.
Rounding to the nearest dollar, 40 + 294 + 85 + 100 + (78 x 2) + 80 = $755
My suggestion was $760, with $45 more worth of rebates, not sure where this ~$100 is coming from.
Intel is faster than AMD (i7 2600K VS 1090T
) but also ~$125 more expensive.
Since you specifically said you'll be using Photoshop lets take a closer look at that
CS4 Retouch Artists Speed Test benchmark there is a 7 second difference, up to you if its worth $125.
Halved the RAM because its twice the price for something you will likely not utilize based on what you said this build was for.
Added a GPU because you "might do some gaming" and integrated graphics will have you pulling out your hair.
You can just get 1x 1TB drive and partition off an OS/program section and leave the rest for storage.
It was just a suggestion, if you prefer your original build then go for it.
