£800 gaming build

Hey, I have finally managed to get my price bellow £800 so here are my parts.

Are all of these compatible?
is this a good build for maxing out games?
Is there any alternatives that are cheaper and better?

400r Case

8Gb corsair Ram

Socket 1155 Motherboard

500w PSU

I5 3570k CPU

CPU cooler

1TB HDD Western Digital

Wireless PCI

So this build leaves me £252 for a GPU, Thinking of getting the 660 ti

  1. That Corsair 500w is one of the cheaper CWT manufactured psu's for Corsair.


    Look at these changes.

    And find lower profile RAM that doesn't have those tall cake cutter heat sinks so you don't bugger yourself when trying to mount a sizeable after market cpu heat sink.
  2. DDR3 RAM

    would this RAM be better?
  3. Also since the cheaper PSU you recommended was out of stock would any of these be better?

    Modular be quiet PSU

    OCZ PSU

    Cooler master PSU

    The OCZ one you have in the middle is a good one.
