Gaming PC for £750 max

Base unit only. O/S not required either.
Maximum budget £750 and not a penny more.
Needs to be pre-assembled - I don't care how much cheaper the components would be.
Brand New only.

Can I get links to any gaming PC that fits the bill?
Thanks.

Just a quick observation.

If you're going to spend £700 plus on a computer make sure it has a Solid State Drive, a far better quality branded Power Supply Unit, and a Blu-ray drive. Also make sure you pay with a credit card especially as it's Mesh Computers (MkIII). To be honest this specification feels like a complete mess, using a variety of cheap, or generic components to accompany the quality processor and GPU. It might be advisable to look elsewhere, and wait for other users response.

OK, understood, so where can I get such a setup for under £750?

Get a better GPU and drop the CPU spec a little. Maybe look at a Xeon CPU as you don't need integrated graphics and it eats into your TDP.

Try looking at Chilliblast, Yoyotech, even Scan website and either configure one of the setups, or speak to them about a custom configuration. It should be possible to adjust your specification, slightly by downgrading and compromising on the Intel Pentium I7 to an I5 processor and improve the rest of the setup to include an Z97 Chipset Motherboard, SSD, Blu-Ray, and a good quality PSU. Give it try.

If you are set on the i7-4790 get the i7-4790K as it's worth the extra.

Just find a local computer shop and pay them £50 to build it for you. Or find someone who builds their own and buy them a case or two of beer.

I can build it myself. However I choose the convenience of having it delivered pre-assembled.

Yeah I can drop down to an i5 no problem.
Don't need Blu Ray.
Should be able to arrange an SSD with those savings I suppose. Just need to confirm those places will do a custom build without charging extortionate rates for deviating away from their pre-sets.
