advice/improvements for this, must be ~£500 (760 USD)
Could do this and OC it to about 4 GHz on the stock cooler (may need to update the bios to do so); should be less of a potential bottleneck on the R9 280 and opens up an upgrade path to either the i5-4690k or the i7-4790k

This one pushes right up to the budget, but should do a bit better than the X4 860k and multitask better overall (and OC capabilities to boot)
Yeah, PCPP says it might need a bios update; however, turns out it shouldn't
thanks man this is great! stretching the budget is fine, again cheers for this!
