Computer Build for Photoshop

I am looking at replacing my PC, These are the components that interest me.

Case, Corsair Graphite 600T have one from a previous build

DVD Drive, ASUS dvd burner OEM

Video card, MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G LE. Also considering the Gigabyte R9 390X, like the 8 gig of memory but am concerned about running hot that I have read about. Also would Photoshop use all the memory in GPU assist.

Power Supply, Corsair HXI 750i 750 watt platinum ps.

Memory, G-Skill Rip Jaws V-series 64 gb DDR4 2400, I want to future proof it as much as possible.

Mother Board, Gigabyte G-1 Gaming GA-Z170 Gaming 7

CPU, Intel 6700K I7, not interested in OC yet but it has a higher speed than 6700.

Operating System, Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64bit

CPU Cooler, Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. Thinking about Corsairs H100i liquid cooler but not sure it is needed?

Primary Drive, Samsung 950 Pro M.2 512 gb ssd.

Storage Drive, Toshiba 5tb HDD already have in my system now just will move over.

Software, Adobe Photoshop CC, MS Office and a little gaming.

What do you think about this build? Anything you would change? and why. I have a couple weeks to think this through before building it.

Thanks for your help.
