but currently a company ( not sure if were allowed to put names on here might be advertising) is selling

2TB Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 7200.14 SATA 3 6GB/s 7200rpm 64MB Cache 8ms OEM NCQ

Intel Core i7-3770 3.40GHz (Ivy Bridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor - Retail

MSI B75A-G43 Gaming Intel B75 (Socket 1155) ATX Motherboard

for £420 not sure if the psu will be enough tho due to it being a single volt rail and in the comments below they say that its borderline for a 6970 :S

The first 480# kit is much superior.
Better cpu The 3570K is overclockable, and will perform better for games than a 3770.
The Z77 motherboard allows overclocking.
Antec psu's are better quality than Coolermaster.
a 2 x 4gb kit allows dual channel operation. 1 x 8gb does not.

That said, I would wait until June and buy a haswell 4670K cpu and a Z87 based motherboard.
And.. I would build using a SSD; you will not regret it. 120gb at least, 240gb if you can.
