All depends on the range of price you want to spend really.

£700-£1500 or lower because i don't want to over spend 

 

you know like pay for what you dont really need

mmmh.. Nvidia GTX 780 or a titan would be a good choice.. atleast.. that's the sort of hardware I want to save up for, v.v Sadly only have A Radeon HD 7670M in my laptop.. I'd likely have to buy an entirely new rig just to get one of those video cards working >.>;;  but sadly I have no idea what motherboards, or cpus and such would be decent.. x.x as I can't afford such things myself.. bleh.. either way, goodluck  with making yourself a decent compy~ :3 I hope my video card suggestion is atleast helpful.

It would be nice to have a starting point; I could just go off and design my dream machine, or I could know a bit more of what you want. What parts are you looking at right now? Do you have a monitor that you like? Do you have a mouse and keyboard that you like? Do you want a bluray drive? I'd assume with your budget you'd want an ssd; how much memory would you like for it? Is it for gaming only, or do you plan on streaming/video editing?

What games do you want to play that are currently out? I'd like to know so that I can provide you with benchmarks.

Also, are you going to stream?

 

At least for now, I can provide you with this:

CPU: One of these or better

CPU Cooler: I'm not one to give recommendations for this.

GPU: I'd go with a GTX 670 or higher given your budget. Upgrade this first for the most improvements for your money.

I'd recommend getting an SSD to save some of your games on.

Ram: at least 4 bg, I personally go with 8

PSU: Don't skimp out on this (quality wise and power wise), having a cheap psu could cause damage to your cpu, gpu, etc. Even the best psu can have problems though. You'll most likely be safe with 650w, but it would be a bad idea to get more depending on what motherboard, cpu, gpu, and cpu cooler you are getting.

HDD At least a 500bg HDD; most people recommend a terabyte, but I have never even gotten close to taking up that much space.

The motherboard really depends on whether the cpu is intel or amd and what functions you would like to have from it. You could get away with a cheap motherboard depending on what options you'd like to have from the motherboard.

Well that's the beauty of pcs, you can upgrade them whenever you want.

If you want to record your games, I'd go with the AMD FX 8350; you'll get the most bang for your buck.

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ It's pretty cheap, but will do the trick. You can upgrade this as you'd like

PSU: Corsair 650W modular Gold

The rest, same as above.

Personally, I'd go with the Radeon 7970 right now for the price to performance ratio. You can always upgrade and sell it later when newer gpus come out and the prices drop. I recommend looking at a lot of review on these cards to see what would be best for you.

Unless you are on a tight budget don't go for AMD. They are abandoning the AM3+ socket and you won't get any new performance CPUs for years and it just simply is not as good as intel.

 

A i5-4670k is a great CPU and I'd highly recommend it. Someone recommended a HD7970 but I'd go for the Sapphire Toxic R9 280x, it is basically the same card but superior. Or if you wanna go Nvidia a GTX 770/780(depending on budget) would be nice.

I'm in the same boat as you. If the budget fits the suggestions are just about spot on

CPU Cooler- I use AMD Processors and they tend to run hot at full load. Good news is you can use a pre-made water cooling system that gives you most of the advantages of water cooling with much less technical skill/worry

PSU- This is pretty much the only thing everyone agrees on. Bad PSU=Bad Day. Go gold rated, modular, and I prefer a larger margin of power so I start at 850 watts, that way you don't run it close to 100% all day every day

Good catch! For some reason I was thinking that the 280x was a 290x in the benchmarks I looked at.

how is 

i7 4770K

Radeon R9 280X

Asus Z87-PRO

Corsair Vengeance 16GB

SSD 240GB SATA

Western Digital - 2TB Desktop SATA

Corsair Gaming Series 800w

looks good, but I'd get kingston memory and a different PSU just because of personal experience. I used to assemble custom computers for a living and anything corsair got RMAd a lot. Bad quality.
