Hello,
I soon am to be investing in a new gaming PC, I would therefore like to see what the best combination of parts for my budget.

Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: £1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, video recording/editing & rendering, surfing the web

Parts Not Required: Mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Can't use American based websites for parts due to shipping reasons - unless very cheap shipping.

Country: United Kingdom, England

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU & Nvidia/AMD GPU - would be interested on hearing opinions (which is better for the system purpose)

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200

Additional Comments: An SSD would be nice, what is the best size for my budget?

Thanks =)

If you don't need OS - I'd get the 670, other than that there's not a lot that could really fit into that price range. The 7850 is one of the best bang-for-buck options out there right now which is why it's usually recommended on sub-1K builds.
