I forgot to mention i already have a grphics card, a 1GB Radeon R5450. I was hoping this would be enough as the current spec is already £800+.

every thing seems good man except one thing, unless your doing any rendering there is no need for an i-7. i got the i-5 3570k and its perfect for gaming. i-7 has hyper threadding and thats for programs that use it and very little do and almost none with gaming.

You might want a little bit higher W. on ur PSU cause 600 is good for a single gpu but later on if and when you upgrade you might want to dual gpu's. Its best to future prof a few more $$$ now then 2 gpus and a new PSU later. hope this helps
