Hello,
I am planning on building a PC and have settled on the following parts:
http://www.ebuyer.com/276562-gigabyte-ga-z68ap-d3-z68-s... - Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 Z68 - £71.53
http://www.ebuyer.com/252536-intel-core-i7-2600-3-4ghz-... - Intel Core i7 2600 3.4GHz Socket 1155 L3 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor - £231.27
http://www.ebuyer.com/262580-corsair-8gb-ddr3-1600mhz-v... - Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance Memory - £34.94
http://www.ebuyer.com/233740-coolermaster-elite-430-all... - Coolermaster Elite 430 All Black Interior Mid Tower Case with Side Window - £38.63
http://www.ebuyer.com/363095-ocz-500w-corexstream-psu-o... - OCZ 500W CoreXStream PSU - £34.98
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00761YFPW/ref=asc_df_B00761... - Sapphire Radeon HD7750 Graphics Card (1GB, GDDR5) - £74.48
http://www.ebuyer.com/272944-seagate-500gb-barracuda-in... - Seagate 500GB Barracuda Internal Hard Drive - £50.00
http://www.ebuyer.com/268239-ocz-60gb-agility-3-ssd-agt... - OCZ 60GB Agility 3 SSD - £44.99
http://www.ebuyer.com/342873-samsung-sh-222bb-sata-dvd-... - Samsung SH-222BB SATA DVD Write Optical Drive | OEM - £12.99
However, I am wondering how the best way to cut about £100 would be? Parts from anywhere so long as they are reputable and deliver to uk.

swap the i7 2600 for the i5 3550, saving £70-£80
are you sure you want the 1GB 7850 and not the 2GB one?

Since I am on a limited budget I cant get the 2gb 7850, I still need to get the OS (probably windows 8)
