    Graphics Design.
    Modding.
    No games [probably].

    Then you wouldn't need much at all.

    What is your budget? When do you plan on buying?

    No budget, I'll plan on getting a paper round or someway of making money.
    Jobs round the house as well. :S

    I'm in the UK, so how much would that be?

    Sorry for the late reply; I think.

    I believe by budget he meant what is your expectations on the price? 400$ 500$ ect? That way it gives them a range on what to pick from when looking at parts.

    Well considering he said once he get's a job, that means he's not ready for a build yet. If you ask for a build too soon, parts go out of stock/deactivated/updated/price changes etc, and that is why you should ask for a build when you are ready to buy.

    About 350 for somewhat of a decent set up. but if you plan on playing games later or doing graphic design you will need a fast GPU and a good one of them are somewhere in the region of 150

    A nice GPU isn't really needed for graphic design; more along the lines of CAD and modeling.
