okay so I am looking to make my first PC, here are the parts I am thinking of using:

CPU ????
CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard ????
Memory Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card ????
Case Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply ????
Optical Drive Samsung SH-222AB DVD/CD Writer
Monitor LG IPS224V-PN 21.5" Monitor
Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit)
Keyboard ????
Mouse Gigabyte GM-M6880 Wired Laser Mouse

Could someone help me find a GPU a CPU a PSU and a keyboard for about £300, or could you change the other items to get a better CPU or GPU or PSU or keyboard. I could push up to £350 for a real push but would prefer not to, but if it is needed I would be willing.

I'm sorry but that budget won't work you want a monitor and many other things the budget is low for all of that and since it's low you will not need a CPU cooler i advise you to take out anything from what you have you don't need like "Keyboard, mouse" etc but it's up to you lowest i could build was about 900$ range it can still play to days game at Mid-High details with a great FPS because you gonna be using a 1080p monitor so please take this into consideration and don't hesitate to pick the best answer :D  here you go please reply, thank you.

Yes very nice good thing prices are cheaper in the uk you should have stated that. But yet all seems good. But i do recommend you go with the corsair low profile series of ram.
