My 1st Build - £500 Help?

Hi, I'm 15 years old and want to buy a gaming PC. I still need to save £500 and that will take around a year xD. I'm going to attempt to buy parts and put it together myself. I'm pretty much a noob so I'll need help when it comes to compatibility of the parts. For £500, what kind of specs am I looking at? I was thinking 8GB ram, i5 2500k and a GTX 560 graphics card. I don't really know anything about motherboards and stuff :P

Thanks :D

  2. Come back in 10 months or so, a lot will have changed in a year.

    Do you need a monitor, mouse, keyboard, OS? I thought I'd be helpful as no one else was :D
