New pc build

Hi I plan to build a pc which primarily will be used for graphic art programs, e.g. Adobe illustrator, photoshop & Autodesk Maya. these programs run fine on my laptop until you get into multiple layers, then its time to put the kettle on while it processes the latest command.

I'd like to keep the budget down to around £500 for the hardware but I need advice on a good motherboard & CPU combination. It goes without saying it will also be used for gaming so I'm also looking at a mid range 1024mb graphics card

I'd appreciate any advice on this and maybe a good supplier.

Could I suggest Mother board CPU RAM Graphics

Then you will need to think about case,hard-drive,PSU and operating system, which will put you over budget. But its a start.
