Personally I'd go for something half the price that will give you about 10% less power, hardly noticable!
can you give me a link to a pc which you would prefer? i also came up with this pc from a different website with some what similar spec for £60 less than the first one.

Ain't got time to go looking/linking. I'd get standard pc and upgrage psu/gfx card,
Build you own would be my advice. More for you money and it's really not hard to do it... I did it oO
Thats what one of my mate told me but i have never built a pc myself so i don't want to screw anything up while building the pc.
Wait 3 weeks to see if Bulldozer is awesome, it prob won't be, get a sandybridge 2500k. I specced one vaguely the other week that I was going to build and it was around £500. Scan had an interesting one on their today only page today.
For about the price you will pay there I got:

i5 2500k
Gigabyte P67A UD4 B3
Corsair XMS3 Classic 4GB 1600Mhz
WD Caviar Black 1TB
HD 6850 GPU
Fractal Design R3
Sony DVDdrive
Coolermaster Hyper 212+
Some Arctic Silver TP
