Solved

Need some advice on parts and building on a budget.

Building a gaming PC on a budget of £600, this is what I've came up with so far:

This build should be capable of running games like battlefield 4 on high - max settings.
Was wondering if you guys could tell me if the PSU is right for the system, and any area where I can save money or improve performance without spending over £600.
Any help is very much appreciated.

Ryan.
