Desktop PC for LR and PS

I am a serious hobbyist. I shoot Fuji X (crop). I don't process hundreds of images at a time. I want to build a quick machine for editing, but not crazy. The myriad of options have my head spinning.

How do I choose between an i5 and an i7?

What graphics card?

What power unit is needed?

Do I need 16 gb RAM?

I am going for 2tb HDD. Is a 240 SSD enough for my programs?

Is there a quality/long life difference between AMD and Intel?

Any help will be appreciated.
