So, with some help I've got to this build. Before taking the plunge i'd like a double check to see if there are any glaring mistakes or potential improvements? My cap is £1000.. but I'd like to keep slightly below to for P&P and buying Windows7Pro for the full price (that £36 deal looks to good to be true).

To save on price I'd also like to strip out my Advent CBE1401 Centurion case, is this a wise idea? i.e will everything fit in it? It's labelled as a mid-tower.

Thanks

Best solution

You may want to find a Single rail PSU. The max rail amp on the one you have listed is 20A. The 280x will need more juice than that. Maybe a http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/ggQrxr

And yes it will fit in a mid tower case.

Hi, does this have any relevance to wattage? PCPartPicker estimates the whole build at 461Watts.

hmm.. anyone? I'm really unsure as to what feature to choose a different PSU on? Are we talking 'pick a higher wattage'?

If you click on the PSU itself, scroll down and you will see the rail rating 12v1@20A etc etc. You want a PSU that has rail rated at above 42A per rail. Usually that high you need a single rail 750w PSU. You can get high multi rail but the PSU will be like 1000w or higher. The one i linked is single rail at 60A

The CX series from Corsair havent had the best track record. The higher end ones are ok(AX,HX,TX) The XFX non-modular version of the one i linked is the same price. The modular one I linked is only like 5$ more.
