Need Your Help With a £750-£800 Computer

Hey I'm looking for a PC build for £750 that would be used for gaming and editing use like Photoshop and video editors such as premiere pro or camtasisa I was wondering what you guys would come up with.
Approximate Purchase Date: When I have the money ( Currently have £450)
Some time after this summer most likely.

Budget Range: £750-£800 ($1150.65-$1227.36 I think)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Graphic design (Photoshop)/video editing, Gaming, Youtube.
Are you buying a monitor: Yes 1920x1080 if possible.


Parts to Upgrade: Whole new PC.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes.


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Whatever you like but http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/ is good.

Location: UK Reading, I currently don't know of any deals.

Parts Preferences: Intel,nvidea.

Overclocking: Maybe.

SLI or Crossfire: No.


Additional Comments: Good ram speed for editing, I don't want any lights for flashy cases just a good Chassis I quite like the 300r's.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I currently have a laptop I got for free w/ pentium dual @ 2.6, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 160GG HDD and intel graphics. This takes ages to render videos and I get around 10 fps when running a hl12 game i.e Counterstrike ect which are hardly taxing. I also just really want a nice fast computer that is semi future proof.
Thanks a lot,
Alex

    Yeah I didn't think for the money in this particular build that an SSD was worth it, I've also heard a few stories of reliability issues and I don't particularly want to loose all my OS and graphics programs ;D

    Any opinions on the build I listed alex :D ?

    Yeah Thanks its great! :) Buy the time I have the money (some time after summer) I think 4th gen possibly will be out so That will reduce the cpu price hopefully and thing will only get cheaper ;D Also I'm not sure if buy the time I have the money up front you'll still be doing your deal. If not no worries this will be my first computer build and it would be fun to do myself :D
  5. Thanks so much for your build man! :) I really appreciate it. However I prefer the build from krthush just for cpu I do like nvidea better though :) These builds are great! Thanks
  6. Hmm i back, sorry about that, basically got banned for advertising (didn't know the rules were that strict, here's the build for again alex)

    In general, the build I listed would be better for graphics editing, but this one will be better for video gaming. I suggest you stick to my build (as i've explained before)
