Hi this is what I came up with for now - http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2GYHO so please recommend me the best build for that money and if I buy all the parts from CCL computers with pay later for 3 months will I have warranty because there is no info on this site ?

No need for peripherals or OS just the gaming rig :)  I will play on that monitor http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-RL2455HM-inch-1080p-Monito...

Your build is reasonable.
Usually, you will also have a manufacturer's warranty.

Best solution

Firstly I'm gonna upgrades/compromises that will give you a better system

CPU- you've chosen a great CPU, if you have any spare money, look at the 4770k it's by far the best lga1155 CPU

GPU - that's is a brilliant choice, I have the same gpu just the 4gb version! If you have the money look at the 4gb version just to future proof but don't worry that gpu will serve you well and you'll be happy with it

Motherboard - there's one simple rule here the difference in performance between an atx mini and say a asrock extreme11 (one of the best boards) is barely noticeable so don't worry about if the board will be good enough, just buy one that has the features you'll use and no more.

Ram - another rule here, again diff between 1333mhz and 2400mhz is around 1-2 fps in gaming so really there's no point in buying high frequency ram just a waste of money..

Ssd - great choice! I have that same ssd so great!

PSU - will be great, if you want to make sure you have enough wattage for future upgrades, try a site like thermaltake psu calculator

Ok I hope that helps! Just remember there a literally tens of thousands of reviews and comparisons so always use them! Good Luck

Oh and as for the warranty question I'm not sure what you mean, but the warranty from the store is usually 30 AFTER you receive the goods/AFTER the goods have been shipped. As for the product they are all independent depending on the company usually from 1 year - 5 years, that's of service/repair warranty. Hope that answers your question

I'd go for an intel core i5 4670 processor, evga gtx 780 ti, corsair 8 gb 1600 MHz ram, asus z87-c lga 1150 and a corsair 500r case

There we go. Minus an ssd because then you can get a bit more graphics power in there and the loading times vs a normal drive aren't really that important. This gives a future proof rig, and chuck any game at max settings and it will run and I mean EVERY game. Even at 1080p or even 1440p
