Need help with £700 budget PC for modern gaming

Building this to run most games these days on high-ultra settings.

Here's the parts I've selected, I'd be happy to receive any information in regards to what I should replace and a quick review of if they'l work together (I think they do but I'd like a second opinion), thank you in advance :)

CPU/RAM/Mobo bundle: AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8 Core 3.50GHz
Asus M5A78L-M USB3 HDMI Motherboard
4GB DDR3 RAM Bundle
- £225

PSU: Corsair TX750M 750W Modular PSU - £93

GPU: XFX HD 7870 DD Edition 2GB GDDR5 - £150

HDD: Western Digital Red - 3TB - £115

Case: Coolermaster HAF 912 Plus Case - £73

Total: £656

PS: I'm in the UK

Updated build

CPU: AMD FX-8350 4GHz Socket AM3+ - £167

Mobo Asrock 990FX Extreme3 Socket AM3+ 7.1 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard - £85

RAM Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz Red Vengeance Memory - £60

PSU: Corsair TX750M 750W Modular PSU - £93

GPU: XFX HD 7870 DD Edition 2GB GDDR5 - £150

HDD: Western Digital Red - 3TB - £115

Case: Coolermaster HAF 912 Plus Case - £73

Total: £743

Thank you for the help so far. Can someone please clarify that the Ram/Mobo/CPU/GPU work together? I have a fear of buying all the parts and then suddenly none of them working together.

  1. Don't get a mobo bundle. It's cheaper to just stick the CPU and RAM into the motherboard yourself.

    Get an FX 8350, not the 8320.

    Also, 8gb RAM would be better.

    Aside from that, the rest looks alright :P

    Don't forget that you'll need a DVD drive and an OS.

    This will exceed your budget, however.
