I have £900 to spend on a gaming PC, what should I get?

The £900 is just for the box, I already have a monitor, mouse, keyboard and everything.

Dell XPS 8300 Processor: Intel Core i7-2600 Processor (3.40GHz, 8MB) Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (64 BIT) Optical Drive: Blu-ray ROM combo (Blu-ray read only, DVD CD read & write) Memory: 8192MB Dual Channel DDR3 1333MHz [2x4069] Memory Hard Drive: 2TB Dual Hard Drive RAID 0 "Stripe" (2x1TB - 7,200 rpm) Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB DDR5 graphics Sound Software: Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCIe Card

Total £899.01

I just found this and it looks quite good, but I'm hoping someone here can give me some advise.

Nothing major wrong with your spec but I am not a fan of Dell. Take a look at some of these i7 offerings from UKGC Never used them myself so check out their reviews.

The question about gaming machine purchase comes up quite frequently on the forum. Perhaps a quick search in the archives will provide some results on various possible suggestions for consideration. Might even reduce your budget, leaving funds to spare?.

I wouldn't recommend a Dell for gaming, perhaps best to go to a 'custom build' dealer for the ultimate machine?.

Bust ,in fact i think it is ok for common games unless some high requirements of special games !
