You'll be able to build a really killer system for that much. I'm not sure what you mean by recording new games - you mean downloading them from Steam or elsewhere?

Try something like this:

Case: Antec 1100 - £108.00
PSU: Corsair HX 850 - £128.37
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4 - £140.00
CPU: 3.30GHz Intel Core i5-2500K - £172.55
Cooler: Noctua NH-U9B - £39.75
RAM: Kingston Hyper X Blue 1333MHz 1.5V - £33.19
SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 - £144.99
HD: Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB - £96.99
Optical: Samsung SH-A22AB - £11.89
Video Card: Gainward GTX 570 - £273.28
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - £71.14
Keyboard / Mouse: Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000 - £24.99
Monitor: Samsung S24A300 24" Full HD 1080p - £149.64

Total: £1424.78

Why the i7? i5 2500k is great and £50 less. Just 'cos you can spend the cash, doesn't mean you should.
And also, look around (as in Google) - ebuyer, ccl, novatech, dabs etc. You will probably save on shipping.

Chose i7 because it fits within budget and i have no idea how much of a toll recording live game play will take on the processor, and yes i could look around but I've found that ARIA almost always give the best overall prices, and people don't usually appreciate buying form 3 or more sites. And at teh end of the day £10 on a £1500 budget is nothing.

The i5-2500K is essentially the same CPU as the i7-2700K sans hyperthreading, which you only really need for high-end video editing and rendering programs like Revit and CS5.
