There's different ways in which I can combine different hardware and still keep under my budget..(Okay maybe a few pounds over) But it's so hard for me to choose.Take a look and let me know which you think is the best build. [I have posted something similar to this before]

Constant

Antec 520W High Current Gamer PSU £53.76
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX Memory £35.57
Sharkoon Tauron Red Mid Tower ATX Case £75.00
Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB £63.90

Variable

Build 1

ASROCK P67 PERFORMANCE £79.07
Intel Core i5-2500K £164.94
Radeon HD 7850 2GB £124.99

Total : £597.23

Build 2

ASROCK Z77 PERFORMANCE £114.45
Intel Core i5-3570k £167.15
Radeon HD 6850 1GB £90.00

Intel Core i5-3570k £167.15

I guess I could also buy the Sharkoon T28 and save like £25 to spend on something more important. What do you think?

I would try to get the 3570K and the 7850 if you xcan't get both then get the 7850.
BTW where did you see a 2GB 7850 for £125.

I agree. You could get so much more for the money i'm spending here in the uk in US. This build seems ok , If I was to get it though i'd take the GPU down to the Club3D HD7850 1GB which if overclocked beats the 7850 2GB by like 15-20%
