Yes you can but swap out the A8 5600K if you haven't already bought it for a Athlon II X4 750K which is a A10 5800K with no igpu. Also unless you are going to be overclocking heavily that motherboard is a waste of money and a A75 chipset would be better

Would you then recommend these two?
AMD Athlon X4 760k
Asrock FM2A75 Pro4+ Socket FM2+

Yes I would highly recommend those two. The Athlon 760K is great and can be overclocked quite well. And that Asrock motherboard has some neat features and is a great match. I would invest $30 into a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo as the stock AMD coolers you get now are loud and your CPU temps get high while gaming

Also is it worth buying an expensive power supply? I'm thinking of spending £16 on one in a sale. is it worth spending £30+?

Depends on which one. I would say do not cheap out on a power supply because if you buy a crappy one when it fails it will take your other expensive components down with it. Better safe than sorry
