I am in the UK and would like to get a gaming pc maybe end of this year or sometime next year, i dont really have a set budget as I am saving up but, i would like the cost to be £800 - £1300 range. I need an OS, and I would preferably like a ultrawide monitor, and preferably the LG 25UM57 25", and dont need mouse and keyboard but I would like it to feature the 5820k processor with 16gb of ram, all help if any is appreciated.

at first i would not recommend the i7 5820K for gaming. Skylake or Haswell will serve you better in gaming

but never the less her it is. this would be my 5820K build

Why an x99 CPU for a gaming PC?

correct me if I'm wrong, I thought x99 was good for gaming.

Well it is to a degree, if you are having 4 titan x's in SLI, then you will need the extra lanes. otherwise a Z97 or Z170 board with an i5 will be just fine.

if you can shake off the need for 5820k with your budget, you can spend less on a motherboard and thus more on the graphics card
