CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£167.99 @ Aria PC)
Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (£109.99 @ Novatech)
Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£38.20 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (£73.99 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£62.90 @ Aria PC)
Case: Zalman Z9 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case (£43.90 @ Novatech)
Power Supply: XFX 850W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (£87.70 @ CCL Computers)
Other: LG 23EA63V 23" IPS LED 19201080 VGA DVI HDMI Black Monitor - 23EA63V (£124.95)
Other: SAPPHIRE TOXIC R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card (£269.27)

Total: £978.89

I plan to buy a 2nd R9 280x in a years time when the price drops to crossfire hence i put a 850W PSU in now. It was hard to complete this build including a monitor for less than £1000 but i got there in the end thanks to some help from a few great moderators and loads of research.

I'll be installing my iHas DVDR from my old PC into this one.

i'll probably change the case to something which has front USB ports, i've got an additional £20 to play with.

any thoughts?
