An i7-7700 build is quite possible within the budget. A number of these items are currently on special.

Thank you Bruce.
I am having a bit of trouble figuring out what works with what and finding the best prices.

i7 7700 is not a good value compared to Ryzen 1600x, not even close.

First is the most important, Chris d what is your current monitor?
This will determine if you need to replace it. Color representation is needed if photo are being done.

Yes, hammers are very good at driving screws.

The Ryzen 5 1600 will definitely be a good substitution, or you could go with an Intel i5 chip. If you go with an Intel i5, you can skip adding the video card since it has onboard graphics.

The computer case doesn't really add or subtract any features (as long as the motherboard will fit), so pick one that think looks good. It's all about style.

I have to agree with Spork on the monitor. Definitely make sure you get one with good colour representation, otherwise all your work could be for nothing when someone goes to print their photos.
