What case and graphics card do you have?

i7 2600 £232

Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 £130

Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CAS9 1.5V CML16GX3M4A1600C9 £70
You could start out with 8GB to see if it's enough for what you do.

If you can't reuse your current case and GPU.

Asus DirectCU II GTX 560 Ti 1GB GDDR5 £168

Xigmatek Midgard II £59
Or whatever you want.

Corsair HX 750 80Plus Silver/Gold Modular £116

Crucial M4 128GB £140
This can be discarded if you don't mind slightly longer loading times, HDD noises, etc. Or if the price of SSDs is still too high for you, or if you don't want the potential hassle that comes with SSDs still.

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM ST1000DM003 £90

Windows 7 64bit Home Premium SP1 OEM £71

Total: £1149/1277 (depending on whether you need to buy case and graphics card)

I don't think the GTX 560 Ti is enough of an upgrade over the GTX 460 1GB to justify buying that.
