Need Help Building PC - £920

It can either be the whole PC off a website that allows you to configure/build your own PC or individual components, that I have to build myself :D 

Approximate Purchase Date: Within a week or two.

Budget Range: £920 - At the VERY MOST

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming - Such as BF3, League of Legends, high graphic MMORPGs + Sony vegas video editing

Parts Not Required: Everything is requied! :D 

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: What ever I get more for my money with! :p 

Country: Preferably in England, unless it's really cheap in another country.

Parts Preferences: Graphics Card (preferably 6970 or the new 7 series by ATI, or Nvidia is great too), Processor (the latest i5, I believe it's the 3570k , Corsair Power Supply (or just as good) and compatible motherboard (I think it's Z68 and something else... don't want too good of a motherboard, not too bothered about USB 3.0 etc, just enough for the components and that it don't die within a year)

Overclocking: Hopefully, but not super overclocked that it'd burn out in a year..

SLI or Crossfire: What's that.. lol

Monitor Resolution: I will choose a 1920 x 1080 monitor myself :D  (with the £100 I have left over, so I'm spending £100 on the monitor, and £900 on the PC - a total budget of £1000)

Additional Comments: Not too bothered about the case, but if you can get a cool one in that'd be great. I'm looking for a high end gaming PC, and I want it to be long lasting! :D
