What is the best possible pc you can get for £650-£700?

Dear Clever people, I have a budget of 650-700 pounds and I cannot find a pc that suits my needs without going over that. Now, I am looking for a pc with an operating system (preferably Windows 7), a DVD drive, and a motherboard that has the capability of running at least 2-way sli/cf. Ohh, And my experience with amd hasn't been a good one so I would like to go down the root of intel ;) But the rest is up to you so long as there is no ludicrous cut backs on other components. And do not worry if this is too demanding and my budget is too tight, I can just so easily wait until I have a bigger budget. Cheers in advance!

Edit: I found this. Recommend?... And, before you say anything, I know it doesn't have two PCIE gen 3 16x slots so crossfire and sli are out the window :(

  2. Ok Thanks guys :) In all honesty I think I will go without the SSD purely because I don't see the need for one, even if it is faster than your standard HDD. And the 7870 was one of the graphics cards I was looking at and it was the one I was moving towards but thanks for the suggestion ;)
