I'm pretty much out of touch now with PC stuff and a noob at it all now, I'm thinking I might build a new PC for £800 later in the year, would I be able to get a PC for that much that can have a go at eating new games like GTA 5?

Might have something that's good for watching TV too, so TV Tuner and a 27" monitor.

davidmt83's build looks about right for "eating" games like GTA5, I'd imagine you should be getting well over 100fps on that. That monitor is expensive though and if you wanted to save money you could definitely spec that down a bit. Otherwise, I guess you could knock the OS off if you have one already hanging around, like on a laptop or something. Also I find TV Cards a bit of a waste of cash when you can get TV online through BBC website/other places.

Edit: personally I'd go for a Radeon 7950 as they are much better value for money, but the 770 is a great card.
