Why not spend a little bit more and think about a SSD? It's a decent rig, so an SSD would go great. Or another drive and RAID?

Check aria.co.uk for prices before you buy (example i5 2500k is £157)

Check it the cooler master 212 hyper evo for your cooler.

Change your power supply to a corsair/xfx/ocz unit. Cooler master ones are apparently poor.

The 448 560 ti can be had for £175 from

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zotac-GTX-560-Ti-448-Core-/26... if you don't mind buying from ebay, im personally happy to!

Good luck

Looks like a pretty solid build. As far as I know the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO should meet your cooling needs. Perhaps someone could verify this who has actually done it. Judging by the reviews on newegg it should suit your needs as it is a well reviewed fan (I own one a 212+). :)
