Looking to build a high end gaming rig need advice £1500 budge

Hello I'm currently looking to build a new high end gaming rig. This is because I'm currently using a nearly 6 year old pre-built gaming computer.

My budget for this new computer is around £1500

Location: United Kingdom Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): No peripherals needed Operating System required: The best for gaming/video editing

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): I'll be using the system for mainly gaming however I will also be editing videos and streaming. I mainly play CSGO which is a CPU intense game. I also play other games like WoW, Fifa 16, Rust, Arma 3/Arma 2. I currently get about 135 fps on CSGO running low on 1920x1080 my fps also spikes down to about 90fps when in smokes/gun fights. This makes the experience playing the game not fun at all. I would like to be able to run CSGO at 1920x1080 with a really high framerate and I don't want it to spike down when in smokes ect. I'll also be running two monitors at 1920x1080 at 144HZ.

I also want something that isn't going to need an upgrade in the near future. I'm not sure what I should be buying so any advice/builds would be greatly appreciated. Also when do the new Intel CPU's/ Nvidia GPUS come out. Would it be worth waiting for any new components to come out or are the components that are already out going to be powerful enough to last for 5-7 years? Thanks! -Halpen.

If u can wait about 4-5 months for the NVIDIA PASCAL series, it would be much better than purchasing currently.. If it was a routine upgrade, I'd not recommend waiting.. The HBM2.0 based PASCAL is purported to be a Quantum-leap for NVIDIA.. NVIDIA Themselves declaring their PASCAL series to be 10 times performance of the current GTX 900 series MAXWELL..

At the current moment, I/d suggest this:

I would get a 980 right now, and then upgrade only the video card when pascal comes out. This should run CS:GO at 144FPS pretty much all the time. This is under your budget, but that extra money can go to the upgrade later in the year.

This build will have no problem running any game at ultra settings 60+ FPS for the next 4 - 5 years. Definitely gonna be able to output over 144 FPS in CS:GO even on 2 monitor. It also offer you great overclocking capabilities.

32GB of RAM is a little over kill but you won't ever need to upgrade.
