I'm looking for some advice on a new build , i've got a budget of £450 so any advice would be helpful , it's mainly going to be used for gaming , general web browsing and possibly some video rendering but nothing to heavy . I've already got a copy of Windows 7 64bit and a TV i'll be using as the display . Here's what i've got so far and it comes in at just above £330 so theres a bit of room for improvement/changes .

Motherboard - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/221178

Processor - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/235421

RAM - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/192049

Case - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/135101

PSU - 450W incl w/case

GFX Card - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/189741

HD - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173804

Optical Drive - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/176026

I'll pick up a cheap keyboard/mouse somewhere along the line as well

As you can tell im pretty new to the whole PC Building thing so any help/advice is greatly appreciated

Not bad. A few changes, but you are on the right track...

MB - That MB is an AM2+ board... Look for an AM3 MB to match that processor.

CPU - If you have the budget try stepping up the CPU to the X4 640 or 645.

PSU - May be pushing it with the 5770 GPU. Consider upgrading to something closer to 650w.
