For that kind of money I would be looking for a Intel Core i5 2500K or i7 2600K

Does the company you have choosen come recommended? Look for reviews before you part with your well earned £1300

Can't see any reviews for this company though their website looks good and they do give contact details. Might be worth looking them up at Company's House - if they're new that could explain the lack of reviews - they could be very good (or bad) but not had a chance to build a reputation. I'd at least give them a ring and have a chat before making any decisions.

Give Chillblast a ring - they built me a custom machine and it is still 18 months later playing Crisis & Crysis 2 .... they seem to have a good knowledgable team and a good build quality.

Can i also say I am not affliated or linked in any commercial way with Chillblast - I am just an impressed customer
