Amann, as newegg is in the US, and wont deliver to the UK.
However if I look on for example;
http://www.ebuyer.com/
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/
Amazon UK
They all seem to be more expensive that on newegg?

Indeed yes they are.. Well something like this would serve you well, 2gb vram 560ti (RIGHT on budget)

Here I built one for you based on what you said.
Part list permalink / Part price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor (£168.46 @ Ebuyer)
Best gaming CPU. Only get an i7 if you are edit or rendering.
CPU Cooler: Corsair CAFA50 61.0 CFM CPU Cooler (£21.94 @ Ebuyer)
Nice cheap cooler should get you to OC to 4.5Ghz but I don't have any personal experience.
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£136.42 @ Scan.co.uk)
Extreme4 is great for overclocking and dirty cheap for the performance. ASRock and ASUS are great MOBO Manufacutres; I rarely hear problems.
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£35.00 @ Maplin Electronics)
Corsair has good RAM and 8gb would be better then 4gb obviously but I would say just get it because RAM is dirt cheap now.
Hard Drive: Seagate SV35.5 500GB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive (£58.20 @ Scan.co.uk)
Cheap 500gb HDD. Seagate is fine.
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card (£189.99 @ Dabs)
Great new GPU. Better then anything in it price range (7850 VS 560ti)
Case: NZXT Source 210 Elite (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case (£35.98 @ Scan.co.uk)
NZXT has really nice cheap quality cases
Power Supply: Corsair 500W ATX12V Power Supply (£44.96 @ Ebuyer)
Corsair has nice PSUs and this one is reasonably cheap
Optical Drive: Sony DDU1681S-0B DVD/CD Drive (£11.86 @ Scan.co.uk)
Cheap DVD drive. only for OS and occasional disc.

Total: £702.81

I don't know what your prices are like over there.. But

i5 2500k
AsRock Extreme 3 Gen 3 - I really can't push this anymore! - Best board for the money, more features then the $150 Gigabyte boards that it competes against. (For reference the Extreme 3 Gen3 is $129 here).
8GB Ripjaws/Corsair RAM - @ 1600MHz or more
7870 2GB for the graphics card. But you can't afford that yet so try and pick up a used 4870? thumb.gif

Yeah, wouldn't need half of that.

I think i'll stick to the:

MSI GeForce GTX 560Ti OC Twin FrozR II 2048MB GDDR5

It's right on my budget and has some nice reviews smile.gif
