I'd love to play 1440p Ultra/max settings at least 40/50 fps.

Any build suggestions for UNDER GBP£700 (USD$1070)?
Keep in mind this price is NOT including monitor and peripherals or operating system.

thanks

The 970 is faster than the R9 290 in most games while using a lot less power and producing less heat:

Although, a 290X will beat a GTX 970:
