All of this adds up to £531.57, but with no added GPU. I would recommend getting your graphics card of a different retailer as you could get up to £50 off. May I ask, why would you prefer the Nvidia GPU, they can be more pricey than AMD and offer the same performance.

This place is great for searching up good deals for Computer parts and games http://www.hotukdeals.com/computers/deals/hot

Also, this is a very good monitor and is going for quite cheap, you should consider http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005OPLG0O/ref=nosim

Overall, there's a lot of good components in there, (say if I missed anything) D:

Good luck with your build!

This build is very similar to mine, but I have an Asus Radeon 7870 (which is worse); I can run Crysis 3, on high settings with 70 FPS
