I wouldn't say that GPU was good for high end gaming now never mind the future tbh.

You're best off stating a budget and I'm sure someone could help you.

Should be ok for current games at 1080p but you'd want at least a 970 for anything more.

I'm sure you could get a decent tower for gaming for around £800. You looked at Scan/overclockers?

I'm guessing you wouldn't be up for building it yourself (it's not as hard as you think but understand If you don't) as you'll defo get more for your money.

I'm on my phone atm so will try look later for something around £800 for you of someone else hasn't.

Would you need windows/monitor etc or is your budget just for the tower.

Could do with Windows 10,if I did get a gaming pc I intend to play it via a big TV so definitely I don't need a monitor so hdmi input would be perfect

IMO I would say another £150-£200 in order to get a decent base build which wouldn't really need upgrading for years.

As the i7 CPU alone is £320.

So I would ideally need £1000 for a good build which I wouldn't need to upgrade for a few years ?
Will have to start saving then,
What's the main parts I should be looking for apart from the i7 cpu ?

Intel Core i7-6700K, EVGA GeForce GTX 970, Fractal Design FD-CA-CORE-3300-BL - System Build - PCPartPicker United Kingdom

You could knock £75 off if you didn't want the none 'k' version i.e you wouldn't be able overclock your CPU.
Agree with this system, it's a really strong build. However if you do drop to the non 'k' version it'd be closer to £120 saving as you wouldn't need the cpu cooler, just go for stock. This brings it to £50 over budget without the windows license

Thank you for all your help guys,if I could save some pennies for a couple of months these parts you have listed should still be applicable?
