Advice required for building my first pc

Thank you. That's the one I'm looking for. Would it invalidate my guarantee if I fit this myself?
Or could I send it to you for fitting?

PCS have an open chassis policy so you can make any upgrades or changes you like to the build so long as it doesn't break it whilst doing so and it won't affect your warranty. They're extremely good like that!

It's very easy to fit yourself if you're comfortable doing it?

BTW, none of us work for PCS, we're all just customers and fellow techies who want to help out :)

I have one more question. Why is the power supply selected so high when I proceed message come up that I could use a lot lower one?
Cheers

It’s a higher tier PSU so much better build quality, plus it will allow any future upgrades you wish to do. You never spec the PSU to the power of the machine you’re building but rather to the max that it could be upgraded to in the lifetime of the build.

For professional work I think the IPS would definitely be a good shout. I'm not sure on the HDR10 aspect as I think that may over-saturate the screen but it depends how it puts the extra colour depth to good use. A decent calibration would normally make good use out of it.

I think 90% DCI is pretty decent though. It certainly seems quite high against the sRGB equivalent.
