Build a Gaming/Programming/Adobe Computer - Budget $1.300 / £890

I need a computer where I can play: Battlefield 4 Fallout 4 Star Wars: Battlefront - on very high/ulta

Also Photoshop and other Adobe programs.

I don't care about the color scheme as I'm slightly colorblind. I do care about getting the best parts that would be upgradeable later in the computers life time.

It should be able to be overclocked.

All parts should be able inside the EU, so like from amazon.co.uk and such.

Thanks beforehand.

Also, if you can explain why you picked the parts, that would help alot.

Alright. CPU and Mobo... technically not unlocked but with non-K overclocking you can boost the clock speed.

The cooler is good for the price though not exceptional when compared to some of the more expensive solutions out there. To be honest I'd suggest spending the extra cash to go AIO liquid cooling but I'll let you make that call as it would go above budget

The ram is fast and cheap.

Good amount of storage and an SSD for fast boot times.

The Video Card is powerful for gaming and will do very well on productivity tasks that require the use of Vram and I hear Photoshop is uploading more and more of its load to the GPU these days.

The case is solid and designed to be quiet or cool depending on your config.

The PSU is a top name brand and large enough that if you want to game harder you can crossfire without any issue.
