After becoming frustrated at how limited my laptop is, i've decided to build my own computer with a budget of around £450 ($650ish USD). I've chosen what components i'd like but would they work together and function as a budget gaming rig?

Amd fx 8320

Asus M5A78L-M/USB3

Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL9 Performance Desktop Memory

500GB Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive - HDD

SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 7750 PCI-E Graphics Card - 1 GB (GDDR5)

CiT Vantage Gaming Case Black HD Audio Black Interior 4 Fans Card Reader -- http://www.ebuyer.com/343262-cit-vantage-gaming-case-bl...

Alpine II 600w B/White psu with 120mm Blue fan

Lg Internal 24x Bulk Dvdrw - OEM (optical drive)

Microsoft Windows 7 (OEM) (64-bit)

(the monitor- yet to be decided, isn't included in this budget)

would appreciate any advice, thanks

For the monitor I'd highly recommend this:

Assuming you're not wanting to spend £200ish or more?

I'd strongly recommend a PSU from a quality manufacturer like Seasonic, or XFX (who do rebadged Seasonic PSUs generally at a better price). You know Ebuyer have the GTX650 Ti at £94? It's a lot faster than a 7750.
