Is this a good build for under £400?

Hi,
I am in the middle of planning a build and I was wondering if this is a good build.
Here it is
CPU AMD Athlon II X4 750K 3.4GHz Quad-Core £58.50

Motherboard MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Micro ATX FM2 £44.30

Memory Corsair XMS3 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 £30.68

Storage Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM £46.85

Video Card Asus Radeon HD 7790 1GB £94.92

Power Supply Corsair 430W ATX12V £40.47

Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) £68.39

I want to use the PC for light gaming ie Minecraft, Starmade, Skyrim (not so light) etc.
Could you please inform me if it is good or not and if there are any improvements to be made can you point me in the right direction :D Thanks

More about good build 400
  1. The 7790 will be fine for running Skrim, minimum FPS is around 35 while it averages at 55 FPS. Minecraft could run on a potato so you don't really need to worry about it there. The only suggestion I have is getting this RAM over what you have selected: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005FN7WCG/?tag=pcp0f-21
