First time Building a PC

Hi there im looking to Build my First computer so i would like to keep my build simple which can do all the jobs that i need , I basically want this computer to play games at a OK level and can render maybe now and then .. i also do use my pc for a bit of Photoshop as well.

My Pc Budget is around £800/$1241 if its a little bit over i can live with that.

I would like to buy all my parts from if anyone can help me with a decent and simple build i would be much appreciated i don't have much knowledge on all of the parts and how to distribute my money .. i was thinking an I5 with a GTX 660.

if i would need to buy any tools or equipment for my build is there any chance you could list it as well.

Sorry for all the questions i am a Noob !
