More about could give advice build please
  1. can't help with the desk, but here's an initial idea:

    i5-2500K
    ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 motherboard
    8 GB DDR3-1600
    1 TB HDD
    60 or 120 GB SSD
    DVD burner
    Case of your choice
    HD 6950 2 GB or GTX 570
    620-650W PSU from Antec, XFX, Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, or Corsair
    1920x1080 monitor from Acer
    inexpensive keyboard & mouse (PS2 keyboard, USB mouse -- wired is cheaper), inexpensive 2.1 speaker set.

    should be around 1000-1100 pounds, leaving plenty for windows and a nice desk,
  2. For websites:
    Aria.co.uk
    Dabs.co.uk
    Ebuyer.co.uk
    Pixmania.co.uk
    Overclockers.co.uk
    Scan.co.uk
    all are good sites so shop around for prices mate, don't forget Amazon can sometimes be useful too, although not always cheapest
    and I don't reckon you'll have much advice on the desk, maybe argos/ local paper is your best bet there, I'd just make one hehe

  3. Thanks for the help, but i was looking for help with what's the best i can get for my budget, because i'm not very clued up on this.
  4. I know man, I thought I'd post some sites for you so you can maybe find the items cheaper, a lot of our members are U.S. so not familiar with U.K. sites
    I'll leave system suggestions to others as I'm at work and cant surf too much on my phone :-)
    Although Squirrels suggested build is a damn good one, I wouldn't change anything there
