OS, monitor? By tower you mean full tower?

I personally suggest this but it's over your budget:

Thank you,

How different will playing games on the pc it be if i spend an extra £300 and get an i7, is the cost really justified or would the improvements be minimal?

There wont be much difference than the i5 4690k.
