New/First PC build for work and photo editing

Hello all,

My laptop just died from water damage a few days ago and I was in the process of replacing it but I thought I would be more economical to build a PC seeing as though I'm sat at my desk 99% of the time anyway. I wanted to build a machine that would be easily handle photo editing, light video editing and heavy multimedia multitasking. I did play games on my old laptop but because of the poor experience I always leaned away from it so I would be looking to build an all-round machine. I also wanted a degree of upgradeability because I would like to add to this laptop as a few months pass which is why I haven't listed a graphics card yet and maybe some more ram. I'm happy to spend more on this build down the line when I have some more money to spend (after covid somewhat leaves) but for now I want to set a budget for £700.
