What CPUs should i use?

I am planning to build a computer mostly for small amount of gaming, photo/video editing (after effects, photoshop).

im am mostly stuck on choosing a i5 or a i7 CPU

i am a bit on a tight budget 

i dont plan on playing hardcore games

if you have any idea on which cpu i should get please help me

it will be nice if you guys can recommend me a GPU too

(i am pretty new to the forum ;-; so if i posted to the wrong section please let me know)

what is the total budget of the PC?

Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.
