do you really want a 1920x1200 monitor? They aren't very common and are more expensive than 1920x1080, which is 16:9 1080p. While bigger is better, it is a bit more expensive which will chew into your budget. Doing a quick search a 1920x1200 monitor will run over 200GBP and Windows 7 will run ~80GBP, leaving only 300GBP to build the rest of the computer.
Thanks @Striker that looks great I will seriously consider that build
and @nordlead I probably don't need that monitor I'm a bit of a noob with resolutions so might of put in wrong thing .)
Anyway thanks all
