I've got £220 or so left to spend on a decent motherboard, nice case and a power supply. I don't mind when it comes to colour (but it must look attractive) or form factor, so leave all the suggestions you like! Thanks people.

I guess you already have the 3770k and the 670... or else it would be better to go with haswell.

Nah, I'm buying my video card and CPU used, and 600 series cards and Ivy/Sandy Bridge processors offer the best value.
