First Home Build

Hey guys/girls, im hoping to start my first build in a few months, and like anyone have been reading and researching and hopefully picked the components I will need. However, seen as its my first build I would like to just check that everything is compatable and see what else you would recommend or not? My budget isnt great, around £400 - £700. Its mainly for using xna and other such programs when i start university in september, but I would like to be able to use it for gaming and video editing etc...

anyway, these are the componenets I have chosen (would i also need to buy cables etc, or will they come with each item?)
