Additional Comments:
My primary use is for gaming but i will also do alot of design work on it. I use alot of illustrator and dreamweaver, and some after effects too. My main objective is to play the elder scrolls online with max graphics, but i also want it to be future proof so i dont need to worry about being outdated for a long time.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:
I am upgrading because I have a very outdated laptop. And i finally managed to save up for a desktop computer.

Its been a while since i've been following the news, so i really need help with knowing which parts would be best. Also, if anyone knows of a really good deal of a pre assembled gaming pc in the uk, please post it.

Well under your budget. Went with a 4770 over a 4770k because you don't want to OC. still got you liquid cooling as keeping the cpu as cool as possible is always good.

H87 chipset mobo as you don't need good SLI support so a z87 isn't worth it.

High frequency, low voltage RAM to go with your haswell CPU.

Fairly large SSD with a large back up HDD.

Fastest card available, well second after the new titan black.

Badass tower and PSU.

Wasn't even close to your budget so I went with a big ass monitor.

Random keyboard and a well priced quality mouse.

Thank you so much for the great answer woltej1! So sorry i got things mixed up but my limit is actually 1400 pounds. I was using usd for reference. So that would be the limit. Also on your build, the price of the hardrive and tower case are missing so the price should be even higher. Thank you so much for the links, they are really helpful. Could you or anyone give some input with a 1400£ budget?
