Hello all

I'm looking to build a desktop for the main purpose of photo editing. Ideally i would want to have a machine that will work for a 4k monitor however i have a budget of about £800, so if its below 4k output standards with the potential to be upgraded at a later date that could work out. What do you advise?

That CPU cooler sucks if you were to overclock that CPU, should use something a little stronger. why no SSD for the os? he could upgrade the storage later.
