Hello,
I am looking at building a pc with a budget of around £550.
Could anyone help choose parts for me as I am not sure what parts I should get. I would like to include the 2500k Processor, Possibly one of the Asus Z68 Mobo's and I want 8gb of Ram. If anyone could help me then thank you very much!!

Take a look at that article. Should serve you well, a Z68 board is abit much to ask from your budget, but you could use the stock cooler to save abit.

Getting one GPU will also save you alot. Maybe a Sapphire Radeon HD6870 or HD6950.
