    So I am looking for a sub £750 gaming setup. I have already come up with a build but I was wondering if someone else could think of something better.

    BUT the setup MUST include a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. The motherboard must also have the ability to sli or crossfire.

    I already have a copy of Windows 7 so no operating system is needed.

    The motherboard you picked cannot do sli or xfire. as an h81 chipset it probably won't have the features needed to overclock, if it has, these will be limited. If you don't need the ability to overclock then you don't need a K series cpu.

    If you are thinking of sli later then psu is underpowered probably. better to just build for now.

    Ok so my input would be:

    Change the motherboard to a Z series chipset to maximise features and overclocking for the future.
    Change the memory to dual channel
    I believe their are cheaper, just as capable monitors on the market
    I believe their are slightly cheaper PSU's on the market too
    No SSD? Realy shame if you do't get one as a boot drive.

    Agree with Andy, you won't regret installing an ssd.
    Buy a 2x4gb memory kit
    EVGA PSU's are generaly more expensive than competitors. Go for a Corsair
