Sounds cool!: the only thing i would change here is the anti virus. But that you can pick out yourself once you get the system. (unless you are building it yourself). These days you can not do without a anti virus program for obvious reasons. Looks like a pretty sick setup. Wish I could the same processor!

I always drop the Anti Virus options from PCS as they have a free trial of Bulldog set as default. When I spec machines up for people on the PCS forums usually they have their own AV so it often gets removed, force of habit I suppose. I specced up my dream machine the other day on their configurator and it came in at only just over double what I paid for mine, I was quite gutted!

Yeah i uncheck all software options as i'd rather a 100% clean system with just the OS loaded, il install AVAST! and keep all my usual tools around! So AMD rig or INTEL rig based on the two specs i posted?

Devils Canyon CPU's will be released in September, it's Haswell refresh K series. The i7 is the i7 4790K and will have a base speed of 4.1GHz and turbo of 4.4GHz at stock. It will run on the Z97 motherboards.

No, they will be released a bit before the Devils Canyon I believe. Those will be (from bottom to top) the i7 5820K and i7 5930K which will both be 6 core 12 threads and the top of the line i7 5960X which is 8 core 16 threads.

Edit: Expect to pay around £450 for the mid range one.

Yes the 4790 is already available mate, but the unlocked K versions have been put back until September.

As I said, the refresh 4790k is due Sept but the next one on from that will be skylake which will be some time in 2015. Really not sure when though.

Edit: Actually I got mixed up, I missed out Broadwell which will be before Skylake.
