SSD is a luxury at that budget. Upgrade the GPU to a 560ti.

I would lose the H60 as well and upgrade the GPU further, maybe to a 7850 or 7870 depending on how much you have left in the budget. You could always get a cooler later, plus you won't need that H60.

I am planning to overclock to 4.5GHz and stable. I have seen it done before.

I do not want to use a stock cooler. I could get a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ and use the money from the H60 on a better GPU, but I am not using a stock cooler.

I have seen a ati radeon 6950 for £150, so I will get that and buy a cheaper cooler.
