New build suggestions ~ £900-£1100 budget

Hey all,

I'm currently in the progress of upgrading my brothers PC -

His current build -

i5 2500k (1155 socket) OC @ 4.0Ghz
212 evo cooler thingy
Asus P8H61-MX USB3.0, Intel H61 [Recently died :( ]
Corsair Builder Series CX 600W Power Supply
1x4GB Corsair Vengance RAM @ 1600 MHz
Seagate 500Gb 3.5" Barracuda Hard Drive 7200rpm 16MB Cache
EVGA GeForce GT 520 Graphics Card - 2GB
Some crappy case

He has about a £900-1100 budget and would like to use a phew components from his old build (I was thinking CPU, RAM(Get another stick) and PSU)

He also needs money to spair for percibles - Mouse, keyboard, mouse-pad case AND monitor

Please if would use www.scan.co.uk or www.amazon.co.uk

This build is entirley based on gaming and has no plans for crossfire/SLI in the future, I barley overclock whatsoever,

Thanks in advance,

    OK i will solely use scan here,

    We will build this keeping the i5 2500k as its still a fantastic gaming chip which can be easily overclocked, so the whole build will be around this cpu. You can also carry over your Corsair 600w Power supply as its a decent unit and will easily power this system.

    Cool man! Looks good, it's a shame that Scan puts (Brackets) in their URLs and TH doesn't convert it or whatever properly, so half the links don't go anywhere, but it looks really cool, I think I might let him choose his own keyboard as that looks a bit big for him, also i've been told that SSD's really arn't worth it their buck, for the sake of things booting up faster I don't really see the appeal
