Need advice for a new build

Hello, I am an old guy and not terribly computer knowledgeable. However I am pretty handy and do wish to put a computer together as my laptop is about worn out. I will be using it mostly for editing in Lightroom and Photoshop. I am not a gamer. I posted on Reddit/ buildapcforme and some kind stranger made a list for me. However, while this person may be smart about computers they may not be as savvy about photo editing needs. So I have 2 questions. The cpu and mobo suggested are a Ryzen 2700x 3..7 Ghz 8-core processor coupled with a Gigabyte X470 AORUS Ultra gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard. Does this seem to be a good choice for photo editing?

My second question has to do with the video card, a Zotac-GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Video card. Do I even need a video card and iif so, is this a good choice. Any help will be greatly appreciated. My build  was budgeted for $1200 but I can go higher for good cause. Thanks to all.
