Is this a good gaming build for £800

Hey all,

Just need some confirmation on whether this build is compatible before I purchase the components :) ,

Please bare in mind i'll be using some of the parts from my old PC,

If anybody has any suggestions for some of the newer stuff i'll happily take it onboard, i'm happy to spend up to £800-850, however, i'm not really interested in components such as SSD's (They really don't appeal to me, I simply take a bite of baguette when i'm on loading screens)

Thanks in advance, Winkay
