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

Look at these changes. £89.98
XFX 550 Watt Core Edition Full Wired 80+ Bronze PSU

or.... £47.94 inc. VAT
550W OCZ ZS Series 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply
ASRock Z77 Pro 4 S1155 Intel Z77 DDR6 ATX

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.
