It has taken me over 6weeks to save up £700 and today I want to finally buy a gaming pc for £600 I want to leave some spending money... I looking to build Intel i5 4670k with either gtx 760 or 770 graphic card.

I'm no expect when comes to computers parts but I have experience building back in 2008 and this machine still running strong I want to replace it now as its getting way to old for gaming.

my ideal build i5670k, 8gb ram, 1tb hdd, gtx760/770, 650w psu, no clue what mobo to get I will be trying to OC this gaming pc, cpu cooler, DVD-RW, win7 64bit, and case, something around this build for the £600 price mark

I got work in couple hours so may not reply to all post until tomorrow.

You should try to wait until after Thanksgiving and then buy the parts. One, because 600 pounds won't get you close to what you want, ans two, because there will be big black Friday and cyber Monday sales.
Here is what you could get with 600 pounds...
