 GT 710 is Trash(linus and luke have talked about how low end cards are irrelevant.)  Low End Video Cards Rant - Are they still terrible? LTT youtube  for web games and basic us the iGPU in this APU 5350 is on par with the horrible GT 710.

The cpu is i7 relabeled as a Xeon without the igpu. For photos  you don't need gpu power realy, but one needs to be added to this build from one you have, used somewhere or a Firepro. ATM Firopro kicks Quadro's but (because Nvidia gimped them heavily Gddr3--26.6gps not 5--(64.4-72)gps and pci gen2 still). The GTXs are better than the Quadros atm, until you get to the $2000+ cards.   SSD for snappy Windows and programs.  Paul(used to work at Newegg) of Paul's Hardware used the relabeled i7--Xeon in a editors build list.   Hope this helps.  (Sorry for wall of text.)
