    Looks like a decent build although i would have went for a different graphics card maybe the GTX 660 or 670 (but it is quite expensive).

    As said a SSD drive for OS and game installs (makes a big difference) and a better GPU a gtx660 aint too expensive a runs ok (on paper)

    I was looking at adding an SSD but the prices where im buying are very high

    May look to getting one to just add in myself

    Also as for Graphics Card I can change to the GTX660 for an extra £55
