In advance I can tell you you can't have a capable gaming computer with an Intel CPU in a low budget as you will necessarily have to get a lower end GPU. With this in mind, here is a suggested AMD build.

The GTX 650ti is a complete rip off. If you want a cheap gaming card go with the Radeon HD 7790 - definately not the 650ti. But otherwise i would suggest going with the 7870.
Look at how the 7790 is miles better than the GTX 650ti:

These are both very good GPU's - the GTX 670 is significantly better though.

I would spend around 200 pounds on the video card. Do you think would be better 670, or a 7790 in crossfire?
What would be more future proof?

The GTX 670 will definitely be more future proof than two 7790's in CF - The GTX 670 is also a LOT faster than two 7790's combined. I would go with the GTX 670, and when you feel like upgrading you can just get another GTX 670 and run them in SLI.
