Hi, i'm building my first PC and I don't really know what im doing, and would like some help! :) 
I have a budget around about £1500 but this is a very flexible number as I will be building this over time and not all at once .

I would like this build to be able to play any game and ultra graphics with at minimum 60 fps at 1080p but I would love it to have a higher fps at around 100-120 so if you could pin point out what i would need it would be great! :D  and thank you for the help :) 

If anymore information is needed or I have worded something strange so you don't understand me just ask :)

Do you have a monitor? If yes, what model/is it gonna be good enough for your system?
If no, that will impact the money you can spend on the system,m but your budget seems large enough that shouldn't be too large of an issue.

I have a separate budget for things like my monitor keyboard and mouse and would be buying them after i have completed my build

I didn't include a case, because at your price level, the case is really up to you, and based on what case you think looks good. You have a 120 GB SSD for your OS and games (have to uninstall games you don't actually play, and a regular (but fast) HDD for your media and not brand new games. Optical is there so you have an optical, don't need a good one now a days anyways.

it shouldn't have any issues at 1920x1080, as long as you're only using one monitor.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/301qp These parts are all in my current build and im averaging 100+ frames on most games and that is why i got the 144hz monitor that i included into the build. This build is most definitely top notch and i recommend it for sure if u have any questions about the parts please ask

Nice, under 200 quids is great; I assume you have an OS, and since you have 200 extra quids, you can either spend it on rent/food/gaming peripherals :p
