Looking for some advise on building a PC for gaming. (Never done this before)

Ive been looking online at different websites and customizing the PC's they have there, but simply its just too expencive. So i read about it a bit and found out building my own is way cheaper (buying the parts online) etc..

So i need some advise on which way to go with this. Anyone knows any good websites in holland or in the UK (just needs to be in english).

Even some advise for a good set up (can spend around 700-800eur) but i dont know if this is asking for too much :) 

Anyways, Thanks alot in advance for any advise given :)

I came accross a 23 part video on how to build a computer that some new builders might find helpful.

Videos 1-13 are on choosing parts and 14-23 are on assemblying the system. I only watched a bit of the first one myself, but new builders might find some helpful suggestions or just comfort in watching another do it. For some reason I see no videos on either choosing or installing the video card.

Searching on YouTube also returns a list of other videos that might help take some of the apprehension out of a new build:
