New cheap computer
I am looking to build a computer as my laptop is on its last legs. I normally use my laptop for 3D modeling, photo/texture editing and some light gaming (assassins creed 1 is probably the newest game I will play as I have just got an xbox). I don't have a huge budget and was thinking along the lines of an a6 3500 and AMD 6670 but am open to other sugestions. I have herd the i3 2120 is supose to be good in graphic intensive programs but and I could stretch to it but would it be worth it? What would be the best set up for my needs?

Sorry didn't see that post.
Approximate Purchase Date: In the next month (but may have to put it off for longer if I don't get paid)
Budget Range: £0-£450
System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D modelling (google sketchup mainly), Photo editing, gaming, internet surfing, watching films.
Parts Not Required: OS
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon.co.uk
Parts Preferences: 16" minimum monitor, prefer AMD but not essential, 512mb graphics card or above prefer 1gb.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
A little bit over budget but here you go - this isn't including monitor, I don't think you can go that low unless you sacrifice the GPU:
Case: Cooler Master Elite 371 - £35.98
PSU: Corsair CX600 - £53.52
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 - £75.22
CPU: 3.1GHz Intel Core i3-2120 - £94.98
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 1600MHz 1.5V - £39.74
HD: 750GB Seagate Barracuda ST - £77.70
Optical: Sony DVD Burner - £15.82
Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 6850 - £98.02
If you can include your peripherals (monitor/keyboard/mouse/speakers) in a separate budget that would be ideal.
