Please check out the link above and tell me if you think there is a better set up for the money.

I'm REALLY desparate for a 1440p monitor so if you know a cheaper, better one, than the one i chose please TELL ME. Also I really want SSD storage rather than hard drive storage. I will be using the computer for video editing, 3D rendering and light gaming. My budget is about £1500 but could push to £1700.Thanks.

It is decent for hte money and OP, for a 1440p monitor, you can always choose an ASUS one since they generally are good quality and have the best customer support; That BenQ monitor Graphiicz suggested is just as good.
