It's a terrible build for gaming.

You should get a APOLLO T1 from the review section, the cheapest mouse and keyboard you can and then spend £200 on a monitor.

Told you already. Cancel the build. Go to review section and get the APOLLO T1.

If you must have a printer then this leaves you a hundred or two to buy an appropriate monitor.

Did you make changes to your build or select the review spec slim cini suggested? The difference is important because the review spec has a built in discount (comes to £698 before adding extras):

I made changes to the build as im using the finance option and am unsure how cancelling would affect that

I really would cancel and start again with the review build. It will save you money and if you are buying on finance, it will also save you interest on that money!

I dont know if cancelling the order would cancel my finance or not
Best thing to do will be to call PCS first thing in the morning tomorrow to see what happens if you do cancel and reorder, I don't know whether they'd be able to transfer the finance payment over to the new order or not.

I'll try that if not the changes I made should do the job I just matched the spec of the apollo
