So looking for a whole new gaming PC as mine is quite outated and I dislike the case. Looking to build it myself and I'm not really that educated with building PC's but I'm guessing it's not very difficult

What I need it for

Mainly for editing on Premiere Pro as I make youtube videos and also for using photoshop. But I'd also like to be able to run games such as GTA 5 and most games without any issues but I won't be using it too much for games. 2TB hard drive would also be needed. It needs to have at least 2 HDMI ports, at least 8 USB ports too.

Price range
Looking to spend £1000-£1500

Build

Looking to have a really nice black case with purple LED's inside, if I'm able to adjust the LED's that would be really good. I already have a wifi USB so it's not needed, do not need a mouse or keyboard neither. I'd like to have a better graphics card and processor but I'm sure you guys will be able to recommend me one that fits my needs as I don't want to buy a really good one which isn't essential. Also, to prevent the PC from becoming slow I heard something about a SSD? Unsure what they do exactly but think it might be needed as my current PC which is half decent has become quite slow over time.

Please also link a site in the UK which I can get the parts/build from if possible
Thanks will +rep

What are your current specs?
Will you overclock?
Do you need a monitor?
If no, what monitor(s) are you using with this system? If yes, what is your budget including monitor(s), and do you have any preferences regarding monitor(s)?
What kb+mouse are you using?
Any preferences for case?

1200 Euros but its cheaper then building it. Honestly several prebuilts I've looked at are cheaper then building yourself that I have seen.

First of all, GBP is not Euros. Second of all, that isn't even 1200 euros, since you clearly forgot about shipping+handling, as well as taxes. Lastly, it's absolute trash. The only reason it would be somewhat viable, is because of how ridiculously hard it is to find a reasonably priced GPU in the US. Which isn't an issue in the UK.

What i5? That could be a 4690k, a 6600k, or an i5-7600. What about RAM, 1x8GB or 2x4GB? What speed is the RAM?
I'm guessing the GTX 1050 isn't doing what you want it to? What exactly are you looking to achieve with this upgrade? because it's not like you ca't run Premiere Pro, Photoshop, GTA V, etc.

"If no, what monitor(s) are you using with this system?"
Again, what monitor(s) are you using?

I'm using i5-4690 . I'm not sure on RAM I only have 8GB RAM right now (1x) not sure if it's worth upgrading. No idea what speed

Yea was looking for graphics card upgrade despite me being able to do those things, also processor update.

I'm using an LG and AOC monitor which are mounted, not looking to change them but the LG has HDMI support and the AOC doesn't which is a pain, only takes AVI. Not looking to change them but if there is any recommendations on other monitors I may look into it

Motto: God forgives, I don't.
This is what I have come up with, since it seems like gaming is the secondary use for this machine, you could opt out of the 1060 and go for a used 970/980 for around 1-200 and save some money. But the card I included does have the dual hdmi feature that most cards do not.
