You mind if i change your case, see what i can throw together for £900? Also why only a 250gb Hdd? Also do You plan to overclock?

Best solution

Here is a quick build an 8350 is essentially an OC'd 8320 so if you plan to overclock this will save you a little money, also an EVO 212 will cool just as well as an H60, if you want a water cooler I would suggest an h80i or h100i. I would suggest this psu it is one of the better quality brands, also gave you a 1 TB HDD with an SDD for your OS

This seems good. I would definitely choose this over my build. Its cheaper, As powerful (with OC) and with more storage space! Thanks though this is my first gaming computer build and I wanted to check it through more with more experienced PC builders. I will have to save up but hopefully I'll be able to buy the parts in July!
