I am running 14-2 wire to my new addidtion. I plan on hooking up about ten receptacles to this circuit. I am also going to jump from one recept. to a switch for three recessed lights above my computer work station. That will be on circuit on a 15 amp breaker. I want to run another circuit for the rest of my lighting which will inve a three way switch and a 3 way dimmer for about 6 recessed lights. I already have one light existing on 3 way that i want to use and add three more lights to this any suggestions

Put the recdeptacles at the computer on their own circuit. Sometimes computer equipment can add up and you don't want that circuit overloaded.

I went back and took half of the receptacle circuit and put it on another breaker so I split them up
