Good lord 1600 Pounds...

Let me see if I can get PCPartPicker for UK stores.

EDIT: Okay, so I made this build (without case so you can pick one out). It's got the 980Ti, but it's a 4690k since I haven't done any research on the Z170 series boards. I don't want to give a board + chip suggestion without any backing information. Also, I do not know for sure if that PSU would work for you (being in the UK rather than US I don't know if the stores listed would automatically sell you a unit for UK outlets). As for the rest of the build, it may not be the most performance:price, but they are solid parts.

EDIT2: I included W8.1 as well, but you can select what you want. Also, the 1600 pound build that you were offered did not include an OS

I'm with AcEsSalvation here re: his initial reaction and GTX w/his build. Why the i7-6700k and 16GB of ram? Presume you must know what you need but if this is gaming/general use no need for the cream of the crop. Different chip would almost certainly allow different mobo (therefore more savings) but I'd stick w/a quality PSU. Not necessarily CM, although some of theirs are fine but not to limit yourself.

Is this overwhelmingly for gaming? Pcpartpicker can look a little overwhelming initially but it's a great starting point. UK members would know more about the merits of certain 'specials' and what not. But building your own is a lot of fun, you learn, and if parts test out you save on the labor. Probably more than enough for that new title you're just dying to play...

Build is ok tho I would recommend going for cheaper solution for GPU and wait for Pascal release.

Or if you want your PC now I would also recommend buying already made PC just becouse of waranty of all parts are included in one  and no price diference on ebay.

For £600 more to buy a prebuilt for a build that is basically nothing more (that build doesn't come with an OS as well) and to buy it off of eBay... I wouldn't ever do that.
Not to mention if something goes wrong with it that is a £10 fix, you have to pay for return shipping both ways. That is not worth it

EDIT: THAT IS $851 DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PREBUILT AND THE RIG I LISTED... HELL NO

Well I was searching for PC build in 1600 pound range as asked.

And you would be suprised how supportive are sellers on ebay these days.

If its a 10 pund fix you can fix it without voiding warranty.

And  inside of UK shiping coasts are minimal even some times sellers agrees to pay for shipping.

Need to shop smart on ebay and you can gain alot from it.

 

warranty also works for seperate parts in these PC,s for example Nvidia,intel,msi,corsair is verry supportive in these cases.All what they ask for is proof of purchase.
