Most of the parts I've chosen have been suggested to me; id like to be able to play games like battlefield 3 and some of the newer games relatively smoothly (50fps)
If you can make any suggestion on how to improve my build that would be great.
Some of the parts weren't on part-picker so I've had to add them in.
My max budget is £550.

extreme version is more expensive... normal asrock 970 will do

Do you know if the CPU is easily overclockable as i could spend the £20 on the Coolermaster 212 and overclock the CPU

That build looks great btw :)
