Hi, I'm a first-time Computer Builder and I'm wondering if you can give me advice/your thoughts on the PC I'm building before I finalize the build. I live in the UK and I am working on a £750 budget and I buy everything from amazon.co.uk. Here is a list of the parts I am thinking of using:

I need wireless, and I will be using this pc for Gaming and Graphic Design. :)  Thank you

Drop the cooler. You cannot overclock a non K CPU.

If you do not want to overclock, get a h87 board to save some money and use it to bump the GPU up to a 7870.

Everything looks solid to me , nice pick on an i7 for hyperthreading techonology . I wouldnt buy an after-market CPU cooler as you arent going to overclock so the stock cooler is fine. I would recommend you adding an SSD in your build it will help your computer a lot , u dont need a big SSD 120 GB will be fine

My reason for the cooler is due to the really hot weather we are getting in the uk :/

I didn't get an i7... and I definitely don't have enough money for an ssd :(  that might be a future upgrade though.

I would do what he said with the H87 board. Also, I would make sure that case has high airflow for your components if you are worried about weather temps. I prefer open front back top and side cases. Also grab an internal adapter for your wireless, they get less hot and typically have better range.

That is a completely different build O.O Right now just want to know if the current build will do me well :/  then I can assess what my priorities are when I change it.

Yes it is good built but no point of getting a locked cpu in a z87 board unless u r looking future upgrade to 4670k/4770k

yes that is one of my future upgrading options, the entire idea for this build is that as I get more money I could upgrade everything that needs upgradi g as time goes by, mainly the gpu, cpu, storage ect. But would you suggest getting the radeon hd 7870 right of the bat if I can afford it? would it make that much difference?
