Hi, any help would be appreciated!

Don't really want to spend more then £750-800 on a new PC, hoping one of these will last me 3 years+ with upcoming games.

Both i would want the GTX 760 4096MB card

Only thing swaying me towards the "ForceBox" is the i5 over the AMD CPU, at the moment, i do prefer the i5 but im not to sure that it will be needed for gaming?

Also i prefer Nvidia graphics cards unless someone can give me a reason to not do so?
Thanks for the help!

 
The Intel i5 is vastly (and unfortunately) superior to any CPU AMD can field. AMD graphics cards usually run at a slight price advantage to Nvidia, but there are things in the marketplace that makes me think Nvidia is a safer bet. I personally only have AMD cards though.

Thanks for the quick replies! Always great having another opinion before buying, i'll definitely check out Yoyotech aswell thanks for the link, haven't heard of that website before. Do you consider building the PC yourself alot better these days? im not experienced with that type of thing.

You won't need the 4GB 760, that's a waste of money when you can get the 770 for almost the same price. i would also make sure the power supply they include is good, 80+ doesn't mean much.

This, you'll only need 4GB if you had some 4k monitor of some sort.
