I want a fast pc for editing , work and games. So basically an all round good

I mainly use photoshop, adobe premier, cinema 4d, after effects and real flow and was looking for some decent render times.

I also play afew games now and then, i dont mind not being able to run ultra high or anything but as long as it can decently run most things.

Main thing i am looking for is a fast well rounded pc

Do you need anything included in the budget aside from the tower itself? Anything like OS, periphaerals, etc

Assuming it's just the tower, this will be great for the budget

Thanks man, I think this is what were going to get, do u think the 550w power supply will be enough ? also, since its first time building, shall i go for a larger tower to give me more room to work in ?

550w will be enough since the CPU can't overclock (the cooler is to keep things quiet). The estimated system total is at 376, so 550 watts on the PSU leaves plenty of headroom.

I think the H24 will be perfectly fine for a first build. Sure, it's not the roomiest case and the PSU isn't modular, but I think you'll be able to manage well with some patience and allowing yourself a few tries on the wiring
