I have £2,500 (2500GBP) to spend on a PC that I'll be using for gaming and movies, will need to purchase a monitor but can add extra money if needed

If you want, move up to the 12700k, or 32gb of RAM, or add more storage as you see fit. This system leaves you room to find one or two monitors, some peripherals, a graphics card. If you didn't know, graphics cards are pretty tough to buy nowadays. If you want the best of the best, you're gonna overpay 2nd hand. Buy an operating system key 3rd party.

I used scan.co.uk to source this parts list, except the thermal paste which I found on Amazon.co.uk

Intel i5 12600KF
Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240mm AIO
MSI Pro Z690-A Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance RGB 16GB 3600 M/T DDR4 RAM
Western Digital Blue 1TB M.2 SSD
EVGA GD 700w 80+ Gold Power Supply
Fractal Design Meshify C ATX case

Total inc VAT: £826.91

Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut 2g Thermal Paste ((AMAZON LINK))

I'd probably add a 2TB or 3TB 7200RPM HDD to this. Get whatever RX 6800/RTX 3080/similar GPU that you're happy with and can find within your budget. Could maybe go Ryzen instead of Intel, entirely down to your preference really. If you went Ryzen, I'd probably just get a similar Asus X570 motherboard, 2x16GB 3200/3600MHz DDR4, and an R7 5700x or R9 5900x.
