I was wondering if anyone would fancy putting together a shopping list for recommendation for a gaming rig. I have a budget of approx £1400.

Cheers in advance...

Oh... I don't need any HDD's as I already have a SSD and HDD to go in it and I'd like to house it in a Silverstone Fortress 3 Tower Case.

Thanks :)

Case wasn't included in the budget :) Need everything except SSD/HDD.

Monitor needs to be in the budget too :(

Was also edging towards a nvidia 680...

IB is out within weeks. Might be better to wait before blowing >£1k. Initial tests show the 3570k will be a very nice bit of kit.

The new 680s with improved and quieter coolers are on their way as well. The delay will allow you to check those out as well.
For the monitor, it depends on whether you want eye bleeding FPS in a 120Hz, or the improved picture quality of an IPS. For Skyrim I'd be leaning towards an IPS like the U2412M

Get this monitor if you want a 3d/120hz one - Benq XL2420T.

Beejjacobs build looks perfect tbh, maybe I'd get different ram if it were me but that'd be to OC it only.
