£400 Gaming System (cpu ram motherboard gfx Only)

I've scraped the idea of upgrading my current system and have decided that i will make a new system. I am looking to spend around £400 for the CPU ram motherboard and gfx card.
The new system will be used for gaming mostly.
I need a gfx card that will also handle 3 monitors side by side.
i have been looking at a motherboard bundle let me no what you think of it. its only £216 but still needs a gfx card adding with it.

    You can buy a good CPU cooler if you plan on Overclocking!

    RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1600 CAS9 RAM (£36.21)
    Motherboard: Asus P67 PRO [This will mean that you can't overclock, but this would be difficult on this kind of budget anyway.] (£74.62).
    (It's cheap, but it looks like a decent board with lots of features.)

    Trinity series APU cannot use dual graphics of a HD7*** series cards. so buying a AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor is a better option.
    Secondly, AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor uses a AM3+ socket that will allow you to upgrade to a Steam roller or even better processors from AMD in future.
    And 7870XT is a tahiti core GPU that uses the same shaders like 7950 and 7970.
    A gaming PC is highly dependent upon its GPU so i recommend you to spend more on a Graphic card!
