I need help building a gaming PC. It needs to be fast have a lot of USB inputs. USB inputs on top of the PC, it needs to run ALL the latest games, run apps like Photoshop, Illustrator (not a biggy but it would be nice if it can handle the basics). The mother board needs to be scalable in the instance that i want to get a core i7 processor don't mind starting off small enough for now. But the ultimate processor would be a core i7 (i'm not sure this is the best so all and any recommendations on this). ANY HELP ON THIS IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! I'm looking to spend about £600

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE SO FAR...
Heres the spec

Intel core i7 2.8gig processor £230
gigabyte motherboard £90
9600gt 512mb £70
1tb samsung sata 2 hard drive £60
2gig Crucial ballistix ram 1600mhz £55
Dual layer dvd rw £20
artic power 700w psu £45
Case £30

This is what i have come up with that has the upgradability and slots needed to add other things later on when i get more money together.. Again any input is greatly appreciated!!
