Hello, I'm planning to build a PC for around £400. I'm 15 with no source of income so it will take a while before I save enough (£250/£400 so far).
Here are the parts I was thinking:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz

Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Mobo

Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance Memory

Hitachi 320GB Travelstar Hard Drive

Gigabyte GTX 650 2GB

CIT 700W Black Edition

Samsung SH-222BB

With the case below it adds up to roughly £400. Is there anywhere where I can get more for less? I don't know much about value for money when it comes to PC parts.

Case I was thinking:

Will all the parts fit in the case? Any of the parts need changing? Any advice appreciated! :D

The 965 won't work with a Z77 motherboard. Also that power supply is junk, and I'm not too sure about that case either. Also don't use laptop hard drives on desktop builds - they're a lot slower.

For that budget I'd recommend something like this:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor (£99.95 @ Overclockers.co.uk)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard (£60.29 @ Amazon UK)

Far better use of that budget - better CPU, better video card, better case, and way better power supply.
