If someone could choose me the best possible parts for this budget it would be much appreciated, I have a little idea of what parts i would lilke but obviously you would know more than me, And would know whats compatible with what. Many thanks for who ever helps!
The only way I could figure out to get a GTX 670 into budget is to use a CPU and mobo which do not support overclocking nor SLI/CF. I don't personally see how you can decrease the price of the build to afford parts which can, without sacrificing quality at least.
If you are not overclocking with this build then you could possibly do without the CPU cooler.
You're pretty much killing the budget for CPU and MoBo with the SSD. Just buy a 7200rpm 1tb HD from seagate or WD. Also you forgot a HDD from the above build, slap another £75 on to make that 800 and 900 respectively.
Quite hard to get in a quad core and a GTX 670 but if you can stretch to £750 theres enough room for a case of your choice and a CPU cooler later on when you decide to overclock. Or if you feel that you don't need 650W PSU you can drop to the 550 in the previous build or similar and that would probably get you in under budget.
