Unhappy Need help building a desktop :(

Hi i am new to this, and also a virgin to building a computer.

I have looked around at parts and read several forums but it is all
just scrambling my brain. lol

I am looking to build a strictly gaming PC will be used for gaming
only and i have a budget of around £800-900 maybe could be stretched a little more if need be.

Any advice/recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks alot .

You can actually buy a kit, All the parts are carefully chosen for compatibility and then you just have to put it together Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more! - Newegg.com

I don't think thats over priced, You may want a bigger hard drive like a 1TB..

That CPU is LGA2011 and therefore will not work in that board.

I would go with the i5-3570K and upgrade the hard drive to a 1TB 7200RPM model.
