Low Budget Gaming PC

Hello, just planned out a PC on a low budget (£400 ish) and here's what I've come up with.
Can anyone let me know what they think and whether it all works/they would change anything?

Graphics Card:
PCIe 2.0 (x16)
-> Nvidia GTX 560ti (£143.47)

-> Socket 1155, PCIe 2.0 (x16), DDR3, SATA III, ATX (£62.00)

-> Socket 1155 (£94.92, i3)

-> DDR3 1333Mhz (£19.68, 4GB)

Hard Drives:
-> SATA II or III (£69.83, 500GB)

but this needs a contribution from Ben’s pocket money

-> ATX (£16.74)

Power Supply:
-> 700W Silent (£22.52)

Anyone got any thoughts?
Ignore the part about pocket money, was an error on my part as I copied the details from an email.

All looks pretty good however that PSU is crap, you can't cheap out on the PSU. Try and get one from a good brand : Seagate, Antec, Corsair etc. How about this? if your budget is really tight then try looking at the parts on aria. It's usually damn cheap.

Is that only when you plan on overclocking it makes a massive difference? I did go for what I'd like to call 'an expensive, cheap one' in the plan.. but then the branded ones like Corsair and that seem to double in price..
