Hello people, i built my own first pc a little while ago and this forum's guidance was perfect. I require assistance once more, this time for a close friend of mine.

Hardware he allready owns :
1TB hard drive WD 7200rpm
1 monitor 1300x700 @60hz
1 Cm Storm Trooper Windowed
Windows 7 64 bit
Steelseries Black Ops2 mouse

........

Hardware he needs

Cpu (AMD , he doesnt like intel and he will stick to AMD)
Motherboard
VGA Card (for some weird reason he doesnt want it to be AMD only..nvidia too in this one)
PSU
Ram (8gb)
SSD (if can fit in budget)
Cpu Cooler (if needed only)
Additional Case fans if the ones on base Cm storm trooper arent enough.

Budget 800Euro
Pc use : Gaming,Light Video editing,Photo editing/Manipulation,Illustrator,Corel,After effects,Dreamweaver,Fireworks etc.
Designer's stuff.///Web browsing//Movies.

We are from greece, you dont need a link to a specific store we can find everything online and shiped to us. Just help us on the build with names of products we will use to build the pc ..

Thanks in advance <3

Thanks a lot for the answer my friend ,
I found all that in your list in my country and my friend has atleast 60 euro more. Would you reccomend with those 60 to go from the cpu you propose to an amd fx-8350?

If he has windows he could do that or go for a faster intel CPU.

i5 2nd gen?... lol in my country i5 4670 is at the same price as Amd fx 8350 he just thinks AMD fx 8350 > i5 4670 cause it has 8cores and 4ghz speed instead of 3.4 +4 cores . (is this true?) .

Amd is cheaper for like 20euro and he combos with a great motherboard that costs 80 euro.
