£800 Gaming Computer - Need Help Please!

I'm looking for a Gaming Computer, and my budget is £800. (I have monitors etc)

But there is way too much choice and I'm not the most computer savvy person, so not sure what I'm looking for.

If possible, I'd want it to be able to play games that are out today and have the option to upgrade certain parts etc in the future.

Thoughts/Suggestions? Cheers.

hi there certain companies that will allow you to customise your computer. these start with a base price and you get a basic setup. however you can add improved hardware at an added cost. Alienware is one example. click here to it and opt for X51 with the i5 chip (second option)then select for your graphics card the R9 270 video card and this will run beautifully for you. The cost is £892

The best value for money would be to build one from scratch, but for £800 you have quite a lot of choice. I would recommend going for this one (click here £100 off until tomorrow, and I would recommend adding in the nvidia gtx 760 2gb, which is a decent gpu. It should run all games at high/ultra for the next couple of years, by which point you'll have the option to sli two 760s for better performance. you'll need to up the psu to 550 in the link, and upgrading the cpu for another £30 wouldnt hurt either. should cost around £800 in the sale, or closer to £900 if not.

It's
