Hi guys, first time builder here needing some help!

Approximate Purchase Date: feb/march 2012

Budget Range: £ 400-450

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Large quantities of photo editing, gaming, everyday use.

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, HDD

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon or any UK sites

Country: UK

Overclocking: Probably not..

SLI or Crossfire: no

Additional Comments:
feel free to quote american sites and prices.
mainly using this for mass photo editing with Photoshop cs5 and Lightroom 3. Not a heavy gamer, happily run everything on medium settings. A medium range £80-100 GPU like 6570 would probably do the job ..? Been looking into CPUs, the i5 2500K seem to be at the top end of my budget, not sure i'd be able to stretch that far with a p67 mobo..

THANK YOU!! :hello:  :hello:
