Looks fine to me, but if you're not into overclocking you can get a Phenom II x6 for £180 now. Might as well get future proof on your new build.

You might have already bought it all but im seeing a little red flag. You're using the PSU that comes with a case, not a good idea as these are often underpowered and don't give the wattage they are rated to (putting your system at risk). Get a little 500w from Antec or something, that will do you much better.
