    I was going to increase the RAM to 16GB if advised.

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £1,106.96 (includes shipping: £28.02)

    Two monitor recommendations also included which'd be a good match for what you want. I prefer 1920x1080 at 24" size but some don't mind the loss in text sharpness in exchange for larger 27".

    You'd need to install Windows 10 on your own or fork out an extra £110.

    Seems alright, terrible PSU and low amount of RAM. How much is 8GB extra costing you? Also the 240GB SSD + 1TB HDD combo isn't ideal when 1TB SSD's are only £75 these days..

    I'll see what I can find for you, it is hard however this time of year. DO you really not have time to build it before Christmas then just pop it in the box?

    I will probably struggle this time of year to build it before Christmas and I'd also hate to make a mistake with my first build being his main present. But if I can rally get so much more for my money then I will do it.

    Thanks mate. Installing Windows has been a concern of mine but there's plenty of How to's out there isn't there?

    Yes. As long as you have access to a second PC/laptop to download the Windows 10 ISO, and a USB flash drive 8GB or larger, it's very simple. You can even even start using it for free.
