Total cost is £1319.21, personally I think that is quite a good price for a desktop and a monitor. It's with english company aria.co.uk, has anyone used them before? What are they like?
 
If this is for games (rather than professional applications like rendering video and transcoding) then you'd do as well to get the cheaper i5-2500K. Also, DDR3-1866 isn't worth the price premium; DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 will be sufficient. Use the savings in part to increase the size of your SSD to a minimum of 80GB (120GB would be better) and choose a faster WD Black or Samsung Spinpoint F3 hard drive.
