Does this gaming computer build work?

Hi guys.
I need your guys help to see if my choices for this gaming pc build is correct. Or if it can be improved. Keep in mind I have a £550 budget.
Here are the specs: (do they work well together and do I need more stuff like cables and wires and more fans? Or am I set?)

SPECS

Case:CiT Neptune Gaming Case 12CM Red LED Fan Side Window Red Screwless Bays
Fan: Corsair Air Series AF120-LED 120mm Quiet Edition High Airflow LED Fan - Red (Single Pack)
DVD Writer and Reader: LG GH24NSB0.AUAA 24x Internal DVD Rewriter - Black
Heat sink and fan( am planning to overclock) : Zalman CNPS9900A Blue LED Heatsink and Fan
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard Phenom/Athlon/Sempron AM3+ AMD 970/SB950 ATX Gigabit LAN
Hardrive: Seagate ST1000DM003 3.5 inch 1TB Barracuda Hard Drive
RAM: HyperX 8 GB 1600 MHz CL9 DDR3 HyperX Beast Desktop Memory Kit (2 x 4GB) - Intel XMP
CPU (planning to overclock) : AMD FX6300 Black Edition 6 Core (3.5/4.1GHz, 8MB Level 3 Cache, 6MB Level 2 Cache, Socket AM3+, 95W, Retail Boxed)
PSU: ( need good watts as might upgrade in the future) : Corsair CX750 Builder Series CX 750W ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze PSU
GPU: XFX Radeon R9 270 Boost 2GB AMD PCI Express Graphics Card


THANK YOU GUYS SOO MUCH!
Anything missing?
anything to improved?
Does it all fit in the case?
Is everything compatible?
Any wires needed?
Also, do I need to buy a USB network LAN thingy( for wireless internet) or does my motherboard already have it?
( keep in mind guys this is my first time building! :p)

    No, your motherboard does not support wireless network inbuilt. Some good wireless networking expansion cards here: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/wireless-network-card/#sort=d3

    It can run BF4 in Ultra at 60 FPS (considering you'll pick GTX 760). Enjoy. :)
