Building a system

Hi, I'm thinking of building a system to replace this laptop which is only good for web surfing, literally.
I was wondering if these parts would go together (i'll attach an image or post one), I don't want to spend a lot - just want it basic to start with then upgrade over time.
Mainly want a good graphical performance, I'm not sure about the graphics card I've chosen - is it good, can it be OC'd, can my CPU be OC'd?


I've just put the basic parts in, OEM DVD drive shouldn't cost more than £20? One of my relatives must have a HDD, would it matter what sort of HDD, because isn't there IDE and SATA? I'm not too sure.

What do you think? What can be improved, it'll also be for Christmas so could push a bit on the price but not too much.

    Couldn't edit, but is this worth paying an extra few quid for? http://www.ebuyer.com/287682-amd-fx-6-6100-black-edition-6-core-3-3ghz-socket-am3-8mb-l3-fd6100wmgusbx
