Approximate Purchase Date: January 2013 (unlikely but possibly the next 2 months)

Budget Range: As close to £750 as possible

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Using Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash, surfing, movies

Are you buying a monitor: No (using my HD TV)

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Really not fussed

Location: Accrington, Lancashire, UK

Parts Preferences: Intel for CPU and Nvidia for GPU

Overclocking: Moderate, especially the CPU

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: Not actually sure (I don't think it's much of a big deal)

Additional Comments: Basically I want to the get the best rig for my money over the coming months and I've seen how excellent you guys are (Akin to bloodhounds ). I would like to play a variation of games (GW2, BF3, Skyrim etc), as well as creating websites, flash animations and the like.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I remember helping build a few friends PC's back in 2005 (they were spoiled, £1000 rigs, since then I've lost touch with the computer world), and I've never really had one for myself. The thought of sitting in my room with my tongue out whilst screwing and clicking my parts was enough to persuade myself to start this endeavour.

I've spent a week looking at other posts and websites, and I've seen such a different variation of builds, apart from the CPU and GPU I'm not really fussed what parts, cases I can get, so I would very much like to see what you guys can come up with. I very much appreciate your feedback, I know you guys spend a lot of time selflessly helping others
