After a long week of studying the different components of the computer and some help from people I have finally decided with what parts I'm going to go with. I need help in knowing if this will be a good build/will these parts be compatible. Or even advice on better parts.

I'll list the parts and link to the website below.

everything is good, pretty solid, maybe you should get a corsair psu, there more reliable

And make sure your windows is 64bit not 32

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, was for sure going to get the 64bit pro verson. (pro as I can get it for £35. Scottish students ;)  )

Could you link me to a recommend PSU on a uk website? Do you think go higher than 550?

By, your golden with statement. Do you mean overall, or just with the PSU?

I mean with the power supply I suggested, you should be all set

Are you going to get an aftermarket cooler for your PC? If so, this RAM has giant heat sinks that might interfere with some coolers.

I would get a 6790 instead of the 5830, though you should make sure your power supply has two PCI-e 6pin connectors.
