What do you mean by money doesn't matter, we could put together systems that would set you back well over £5000 easily and computers are completely defined by the budget. Set the budget is the first thing when picking parts.

Using the most up-to-date components is pointless, you may as well tip money down the drain.
Soon as you buy any brand new component, something new and better is just round the corner, there's never a good time to buy, you have to bite the bullet.
If you were to buy a new car, it would depreciate like there's no tomorrow. Buying a slightly old car means the rate of depreciation is slower but it will still get you from A to B whether its brand new or four years old. Same with a computer, buy some slightly older components and the computer will be cheaper but it'll still get the job done.

Thats a bit more of a realistic question, do you have anything you are re using or do you need the whole thing from scratch so do you have a monitor etc.

If you have that stuff you could get away with a system similar to mine just downgrading some of the components, if you need a monitor you will need to make more compromises in the main system.

The case isn't the biggest issue. Keyboard, mouse, and the monitor would save you a lot if you could re use the ones you already have, if you already have decent ones.
