General compatibility, will everything work togerher?
Is the PSU i picked ok for my build?

I think you can build a better pc with this budget.
You wanna play Games ? Render ? Music ?
I saw you buy a 7.1 sound card but u also buy 2.0 speakers =/

Im mainly using it for games, however i will be using it for movies and youtube and things like that, im not sure about what you mean with the soundcard and speakers, will they not work together?
Also those arent the speakers im using, the actual speakers are Logitech Z130

Your motherboard already have audio output for simple audio use, like youtube and movies. Good enough for 2.0 speakers.
Also has network output for lan/ethernet connection.
You also add one PCI for wi-fi. Why ? :D

No you dont need the Network adapter you already have one in your motherboard.
And your PSU its ok also.

Ok then ill remove the other adapter as well. Are there any other improvements i can make? my budget is £700 for the whole system so the pc itself is about £630
Also, would I be able to use the Inwin FANQUA case with this build? i prefer that case to the one i have now but i cant seem to fins it anywhere
