Advice wanted on first PC build - Architecture Workstation

Hi Guys,

I'm hoping to move away from the Mac world and building a PC seems like the sensible thing to do. I'm an architecture masters student doing a lot of CGI work in VRAY and Enscape, 3D modelling in Revit and post production in Photoshop, Illustrator. I also will use the pc for editing photos in lightroom and streaming tv and movies. I'm not a big gamer but if I were able to configure something which could do all this and run some games (Fifa maybe) that would be great, but I don't want to spend any extra to do this. At the minute this will just be used for Uni work but I'd like to start a side business producing architectural visualisations so I want a system that is relatively future proof with capacity to upgrade. I currently have one Samsung lt24d390ew monitor and will either buy a second one or buy two new screens if anyone has any recommendations.

My budget is approx £1500 but if I don't have to spend this much that would be great. I know very little about pcs so please excuse me if my choices are poor.

Could you please edit to include the "Unique Configurable URL" from the post to forum page? Makes it easier for us to go in and amend if needed rather than doing the whole configurator. Thank you

ALso, what is your monitor budget as we may be able to recommend the complete package?

URL added. Wouldn't want to spend more than £150 on a second monitor but this could increase if the Pc is under budget.
