Can some one help me build a decent gaming pc?
Could someone help me build a up to date gaming PC for a budget around £500? I would prefer an Intel build if possible, with the option of upgrading to an I7 at a later date (as i assume you cant get a I7 gaming pc for my budget). Thanks for the help! - Andy

Unfortunately the processor request made it difficult to keep it within the budget. Im not sure how long you want to wait to upgrade your processor. If it's anytime soon, I would just suggest to hold back and save an extra $100 to upgrade the 4670k to a 4770k before you buy your build. It would be silly to buy a 4670k only to upgrade to a 4770k a couple months later. That being said, I think you'll be very happy with a 4670k.
This build doesn't include an operating system so hopefully you don't need one.
