I just got £575 and would like to make a computer with it. I already have an OS and Case but I need one extra fan. I would like an i5 and something like a GTX 660 or 660 ti if I can afford the ti. I would like to play games at 1920 x 1080 and I play mostly high end games such as Arma 2,BF3 and Metro 2033. I am not that bothered about an SSD as I could save up for one later. I would like the performance to be as good as possible with this budget. I have NOTHING to re-use.

Thanks for your help in advance.

EDIT: Should I get a HD 7950 instead of a GTX 660 Ti if I can
