you can max cod out with intergrated graphics most of the time

i overkilled the SSD since it is 256gb but if you want to save some money, a 128gb is half that price. you will also have to get the power supply from overclockers.uk since the one that is listed in the parts list is the older version

I was just looking at the configurator and after removing the 690 it goes down to £1,200

This is a much more manageable amount, which graphics card do you suggest that will be good for what I am after?

1080 Gaming
1080 Recording
720 Streaming
