I'm planning on making my pc - £2000 budget - I have already chosen the parts below with great help.

CASE - Silverstone Raven RV-03 Tower Case w Window : RV03B-W

CPU - Intel Sandybridge i7-2600K Unlocked Core i7 Quad-Core Processor (3.40GHz, 8MB Cache, Socket 1155) - As I plan on doing video editing/rendering too.

GPU - Asus AMD Radeon HD 7970 Graphics Card (3GB, GDDR5, HDMI, DVI-I, PCI-Express 3.0) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-Radeon-Graphics-GDDR5-PCI-Express/dp/B006TQS3QM/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1326785974&sr=1-1

MOBO - ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Motherboard (Socket 1155, DDR3, USB 3.0, Instant Boot Technology) - http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASRock-Z68-Extreme4-Motherboard-Technology/dp/B005FE52X6/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1326750325&sr=1-2

COOLING FAN - Thermalright - CPU Heatsink Kit - 2x 140mm PWM Fan - Silver Arrow - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thermalright-Heatsink-140mm-Silver-Arrow/dp/B003XRAKLQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326746554&sr=8-1

RAM - Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 16GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Four Module Kit - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9-1600MHz-Vengeance-Memory/dp/B004E0ZKLQ/ref=pd_ybh_11?pf_rd_p=138755991&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1501&pf_rd_i=ybh&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=1S875THQR7X75C6TW0NQ

(The cooling fan above is the one I'd choose if I don't go for water cooling.) I'd like to get a 1TB HDD and a smaller SSD for windows and other applications too. What ones should I look at?

Tom's hardware did an article on the best SSDs for the money for December. That is recent enough. You might consider perusing that.

I haven't had good luck with OCZ stuff in the past so I stay away from them - rational fear or not - so in the 110-200$ category, where you are likely to look for a decent quality SSD for loading your OS, the new Corsair Force 3 drives seem to be pretty good.

As far as hard drives, the 3TB Seagates are pretty nice for performance, so their 1TB counterparts likely offer fairly good performance on their own.

I admit I am a bit biased because every hard drive I have ever owned was made by Seagate.
