Are these components OK? budget is around £750.

Hi, I think I've finally chosen some components and would really appreciate some thoughts.

My budget was originally £650 but I think I'll need to spend more to get a decent build (£760.53 apparently)

I've copy and pasted the list of components from PCPartPicker (http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/)
