I have decided to build a pc. These are my components http://www.pc-specs.com/pc-custom-builds/229544

I can probably add another £50 into this build so would you recommend anything?

The build is very good, you could run every game on med-high settings, some on Ultra. Pretty much the best for that money. I'd get 8GB DDR3 at 1600mhz or 1333mhz, but that's not that important. If you record, render and like playing good games, get 8GB of DDR3 ram at 1600mhz.

With that price I have a better build. And everything a gaming PC needs.

He doesn't need a monitor. And it's 300$ more than he planned. I'd choose AMD because of better overclocking and Mantle support. NVidia has CUDA and Shadowplay though. If you took out the secondary parts, you could get a GTX780, which is reasonably better than GTX770.

Yes, and yours is 906GBP, which is 1 507.61571 U.S. dollars. And he already made a build to suit his needs. He just wanted an improvement, since we can assume he already has a PC and a Monitor and other swag. And that's almost 400$ more. But GTX770 is a better card, but also more expensive. GTX770 goes at 350$ and more, even to 400$. R9 270X is 260$ at most though. You could get R9 280 at a great price, which is better than R9 270X significantly.

Thanks :)  Could I buy another graphics card later on, will my MB support two?

It has 4 PCie slots, so yes, you can. You can CrossFire AMD graphics or to SLI Nvidia's.
