'Which is the best AMD or Intel' will not notice any difference. Go for the cheapest...AMD.

'What should i be looking for Size wise'...2Ghz+ processor will be more than adequate. You will need 512Mb RAM though if you going to do photo-retouching although 256Mb will do.

£595 ex VAT (I assume that you will reclaim the here

Check out PCWorlds Compaq and here especially the EI SYSTEMS 5030

You should not need to spend over £700 incl. VAT to get a computer that is excellent for your needs. Don't buy an AV or firewall, ask here for free, well respected ones ;-))
