Approximate Purchase Date: Tomorrow - next few days.

Budget Range: £450-500 max.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Editing photos and videos (gameplay footage, no 3D modelling etc), rendering videos, gaming, home use.

Parts Not Required: Monitor, Operating System (Windows 7)

Preferred Website for Parts: is an easy way to find pats, but:, dabs, ebuyer,, maplin too :) 

Country: England

Parts Preferences: just found a retail i5-2500k for £150, is it worth it, might upgrade and OC in future then?

Overclocking: Sure, if fits in pricetag.

SLI or Crossfire: Probably not

Monitor Resolution: 720p for now, will upgrade at some point in future.

Additional Comments: If it can render gameplay video at a good speed (for the price) and as long as games like MineCraft are at decent playable framerates that'd be awesome!
Thanks for any ideas.

Edited, but won't let me change the title, saying I don't have correct permissions, forums being buggy still?
