800 series GPUs is mobile only and Broadwell is going to be expensive once released because of DDR4.

Source on 800 series being mobile only? There are a few rumors that they might just call it the 900 series but they will be releasing new desktop GPUs soon. Also, Broadwell doesn't need ddr4. It will work on current H97 and Z97 motherboards which use DDR3. You are thinking of Haswell-e CPUs on the 2011-3 socket that use DDR4.

Also a source is NCIX,since they already released the 860M they wanted a new number series for the new architecture.

They may skip 8xx, not because of a new architecture, but because the 20 nm architecture isn't turning out as great as they thought it would be. They are planning on skipping 20, and going straight into 16. But rumors say that the gtx 8xx are gonna be 22nm for now.

And you'll still even have enough money left over for upgrades. (That's not really needed but it's optional)

That computer is a terrible buy and is totally unbalanced. A 4770 which OP will never fully use, 16 gigabytes of RAM which he will also never fully use, a terrible motherboard, and a GT 630? That's not a gaming computer at all and the fact that they say maximum performance drives me insane. To make it worse the audio will be terrible and the power supply would be terrible for upgrading down the road.

TL;DR: OP, don't even think about buying that garbage.

Edit: Just realized it doesn't even come with an OS, that's about $90 you'll need to add.

The thing is that none of these PCs have Windows on them, so you need to buy it and install it manually. Windows 8.1. You can always put Ubuntu in it for free.
If you already have a computer/laptop somewhere and a flash drive, you could put Steam OS on it. It's free and is basically Linux with Steam.

I don't live in uk and I don't want to buy parts separately because of shipping + I don't even know how to manually build a pc.

Yet you want to buy all parts from amazon.uk...? You can buy all the parts from the same place and it's extremely easy to build a PC, just watch the video that someone else posted.

I don't think that you should get a pre-built PC for that budget. They cost quite a lot and have not-so-good parts. Anyway, I'll post you some I liked below:

G3420 Dual Core 3.20 GHz, 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 770

i5 4570 Quad Core 3.20 GHz, 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti 1GB

i5 4570 Quad Core 3.20 GHz, 1TB HDD, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti 2GB

The thing is that none of these PCs have Windows on them, so you need to buy it and install it manually. Windows 8.1. You can always put Ubuntu in it for free.

1st one is a big NO NO! Becaus the CPU bottlenecks the processor I will go with the 3rd option but I highly advice you to build own GAMING PC

Jesus dude. CPU stands for Central Processing Unit, that IS your processor.

Well, if the CPU bottlenecks the GPU (that Pentium is good, but still...), you can always change it later. In my opinion, if you will purely game, go with the 2nd PC, then just wait until 8XX/3XX series of GPUs come out and buy one of those and put that in. You can also go with the 1st PC and wait for Broadwell CPUs, but I'm afraid that the motherboard might not support the CPU, so you might want to change the motherboard itself... As you said, the best option is to build your own gaming PC. I'll put a build below.

Yea I am thinking of Haswell-e,all these new names get confusing .Also a source is NCIX,since they already released the 860M they wanted a new number series for the new architecture.
