I've made this build but its a little pricey. I'm wanting a gaming PC that will run the newest games on near ultra graphics with no lag.
Can someone edit the build to get it round to £800-850 but keep decent specs.

Also i like the case, so can you build around that please.

Thanks :)

That WD Velociraptor is really good, but you really don't need it since you already have an SSD in your build.

The WD Velociraptors are a gigantic waste of money. They do not perform any better than a standard 7200 RPM drive. Especially if you're using an SSD.

This is a much better use of £900:

Thanks, theyre all great replies...Is the K version of the CPU necessary, i thought that you should only really deal with that if youre going to overclock (Which im not), also ive been told that the cooler thats supposed to come with a cpu is good enough?

Thanks again everyone

While the K version is not necessary, it certainly doesn't hurt. It's only a few $ more and the K versions have slightly better clocks as well. It also allows you to overclock if you so desire.

Ahh right, well one final thing. Why would the amd cpu be better than the intel? (Or vice versa)

The Intel i5 is actually better for gaming, but the other two builds are using the GTX 760 instead of the GTX 770. The AMD FX8000 series has more cores and is able to do multicored processes better, but the i5 has more power per core.

Since neither an i5 or FX8000 will bottleneck a GPU, it's down to preference on which GPU you want. Personally I use an FX-6300 and I've never had an issue where it was too underpowered.
