need help with building a gaming computer

so my main problem with building a gaming computer is the fact that I live in Brazil, where it's almost impossible to create your own computer because of the price's of the parts. I'm going to visit London sometime in 2013 and while I'm there I'd like to buy the core parts for a gaming computer. The keyboard, mouse, headphones, etc. I can buy later on but the CPU, graphics card, RAM, etc. I need to buy while I'm there (few weeks probably). My price range is around 500-600 pounds for just the computer. I know little about the best components for the best price and would appreciate anyone's advice :)

TL;DR:

i need to buy a computer with price range of around 500-600 pounds with no "external" parts (headphones, keyboards, etc.) and would appreciate any advice.

This is a list from scan ignore the total price as I forgot to delete the Scansure £15.96 which you don't really need. This spec is much better than the YoYoTech one. I have made the operating system 64BIT but if you prefer to save money you can change that to the 32BIT version which would mean you would need only half the RAM.Your choice.

The Ebuyer spec I have dropped the OS to 32BIt,halved the RAM, chosen 5 days delivery which is free.

Scan.

Ebuyer.

You could probably swap the GTX 660 for a HD 7850 as there is not much difference,compare. Saving yourself around £20-£30 which you use to buy a better cooler for the CPU.

If I were to chose 32 bit instead of 64 bit, would it affect gaming a lot?

Here is another build from Scan but this one has a HD7850 GPU and I have added a Arctic freezer cooler.Ignore the total I get free postage so it does not show it on the total list.But remove the Scansure and include £9.15 postage and the total comes to £569.30.

My apologies. Here you go. Scan.

Someone brought up an interesting point have you thought about import duties which I believe are quite steep in Brazil?Whilst not a great source, seems about right. Link.
