New build! £800 budget

Hi guys,

I am looking to make or by a new PC as my old one has packed in but I wanted to upgrade it anyways. I have a budget of around £800 I have a little wiggle room on the but only a bit.

I need recommendations on Prebuilt setups or the parts to buil my own again.

Requirements:

CPU - Minimum Quad Core 3.9Ghz 64bit compatible.

RAM - 16Gb DDR3

GFX Card - This is not necessary as I have a GeForce GTX 660 TI bit if include one that I can run in tandem with the one I have.

Storage - Small GB SSD, enough to hold my operating System and nothing else as I have a 1TB drive.

Drives - Possible BluRay drive but not necessary as I have a DVD-RW, BluRay would just be nice.

PSU - I own a PSU do not need another unless part of a prebuilt.

Case - Preferably Red led lights, reasonable size, nice to look at.

OS - Windows 7 64bit any edition

Please factor the price of the case and the OS into the total cost.

I will be using this rig to play some high end games like CoD and battlefield all the way down to the lower end of the spectrum.

I live in the UK and would appreciate any help with this that I can get!

For what do you use your PC? Mainly for gaming or for something else as well?
