£600 Gaming PC Build

Hi, so this will be my first pc build and I am looking for ideas.
I have come up with this http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2V3p2
It is a bit too expensive for my liking and I would like to lower it to about £600 - £650 max without dropping some of the key components (ie. i5 4670k and GTX 770)

My current plans would be to build the pc without a 770 at first and use integrated graphics for a month or so (hence the 4670k) bring the cost down to about £500. I would then sell my current laptop after building the pc and buy the 770.

Also do AMD CPU's have integrated graphics? If so this could bring the price down a bit with an FX8320 or something?

I did have to bring the GPU down to the 760, which is still really good. I also changed the case but it is practically the same type of design as the R4. I also had to change the motherboard to a Gigabyte. But Gigabyte is really good so no need to worry.

Well AMD have better integrated graphics so try this build; http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2VEUn as it's a bit more in your price range but I personally like Intel better.

In conclusion if you want to run games with without dedicated graphics for a while get an AMD APU as their integrated graphics is better that intel CPU's, however intel generally run a little better with dedicated graphics (in my experience) then AMD.

But he will have a dedicated graphics card. The 760.

So with this build will I be able to use the pc without the GTX 770 at first? (I only need to use integrated for about 2-3 weeks until I sell my laptop as I need at least one functioning PC for revision, exams etc)

Yes, but for gaming, not exactly. You will probably have to put the settings lower and get lower FPS.

Well then go with the Intel. The i5-4670k has integrated graphics. As for the motherboard, this is also good, http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CXK5AY6/?tag=pcp0f-21

How much would this cost? Intel seems to cost far more and I am trying to keep costs down to £600-£650

Thanks! I may change it a bit.
I could save a bit on a case and get one of these.. http://www.ebuyer.com/414620-cooler-master-k-series-k38...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zalman-Z11-Plus-Installation-An...

(I know cases is usually personal preference but are any of these good to save a bit of money?)

Yeah, the 300R dropped to $50. That's a awesome price for what you are getting.

Appears to still be very pricey here in the UK

Equates to around $105.. :(
