Agree the i5 is a strong performer but if the budget will allow then the i7 4770 is also a no brainer. But that being said the combo of great ram, fast ssd, killer 760, solid mobo and either a i5 or i7 will flat fly !

OK going to work out the sums and decide but it looks like either the 4670, but if money allows, the 4770.
Asus or MSI Z87 mobo or similar.
The rest as posted previously.
Reckon after I spend this lot the missus won't talk to me for a month or so....Ahhhh bliss!!
I'll post back when I've done the deed and let you know how it runs.
Thanks to all for the input and help.

Well well, here's me with stupid look on face
Had the money in hand to buy the new computer parts but being a stubborn mule this wasn't gonna beat me.
After trying a different HDD, burner, PSU etc etc, as a last resort I disconnected, cleaned and re-connected everything, fired it up and same bloody thing........hung at the blue windows screen after loading Windows files
I then.....childishly.. ..literally kicked the box and went to make a coffee before I really blew a fuse. Had a coffee, cooled down, went to shut the damn thing down and there is the next screen bright as day

So......completed the clean install and all is well. Happy again and with a grand of the ball and chain's money burning a hole in my pocket. Oh well, off to the pub

Thanks for the advice anyway fellers, it will come in handy later I'm sure.
