Getting Gaming PC!

Ok, I posted this in absolute beginners because this is the very start of my PC story I suppose. Anyway my question is, where should I buy a good/reliable gaming PC from?

It would help to have an idea of your budget,please remember a pre-built gaming PC is not necessarily cheap.

I know it's not a cheap thing to buy which is unfortunate :(

My budget is £830.

Needs to be at least i5 and 8GB RAM if that helps at all.

Would building your own be out of the equation? For gaming systems in particular, you can save quite a lot of money that way.

Do you need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, etc from that budget too or just a tower?

Forgot to say. No speakers or monitor with the above PC

I do need: Tower Keyboard Mouse

I don't need: Monitor Speakers

When I add windows 7 Home to that computer that's linked it goes up to £919 so I can't buy that :(
