What website do you recommend for building a PC within the £1200 range?

It's for 3D design and rendering, if that changes anyones answers!

I've been looking at this site which looks pretty good: http://www.computerplanet.co.uk/
There's no way I'm going to build this thing myself, so advise much appreciated!

I could give you videos on building it yourself. You just need patience and a screwdriver really.

Wow, thanks for the bespoke and detailed specification! I was going for some similar components, apart from a Quadro K600, Corsair Vengeance 16GB and Asus SABERTOOTH Z87. I worked out that www.computerplanet.co.uk charge about 10% of component value, which I thought is reasonable. I also found that www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk didn't offer the components I was after, I have been looking to match a spec that a friend recommended: Intel core i7 3770k - Corsair DDR3 1600MHz - Quadro K600 1GB - Asus p8h77-m-atx - Samsung 840 Series 120GB. I have watched some videos of how to build a PC, but I think the extra bit of money to get it done professionally is worth it.

What would be the difference in performance if I was to go for either the Asus Z87-K or the Asus SABERTOOTH Z87? I am new to this, and would massively appreciate an explanation of how the motherboard affects the running of the machine and performance of the other components. Thank you in advance...

Okay, is this solely for editing? No gaming?
