Hi there. Ive pretty much decided on the components I want. I just want to make sure everything is compatible and listen to any suggetions anyone here may give me plus i need to cut down on the cost somewhere.
I really need to shave maybe £100 off of the cost somehow without comprimising performance too much. Have I overspent in any areas unneccessarily? Im looking at the motherboard and powersupply when i say that.
Im open for any suggetsions and advice anyone can give me.

If you think you will upgrade in the future to 2 video cards, you can keep that psu that you have selected and then get that video card that Proximon suggested, since your board will support xfire. Otherwise if you want to stick with that card, you don't need a Mobo with 2 pciex16 slots (since there is no SLI support for P45) and you could save more money.
Yep they're all compatible with each other. One more thing:
Change your hard drive to Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB WD6401AALS, its the fastest 7200rpm drive and more reliable than Maxtor, Or at least the WD6400AAKS, which is the same drive with a 16meg buffer instead of 32
