He can skip the cooler since he probably won't be overclocking and move down to a 970 chipset mb to save more cash.

Not enough details:

e.g. Adobe CS Premiere... needs Cuda, Adobe CC opened up for other GPUs, but is way to expensive on the long run and he can't open his projects after canceling the contract

Photoshop has plug-ins that also need Cuda, but still will work without the plug-ins...

Ssd for os, programs, and scratchdisk for virtual memory when working with large projects.
