£600ish New Build - Advice Wanted

Right, so here's the deal.

After starting working full time once finishing my A Levels, i am looking to build a gaming PC as my current laptop and PC are lagging behind on old tech (PC's still running AGP and a 3.00GHz Single Core) so as you can imagine, upgrading is kinda out of the question as other parts are failing anyway.

I was looking to build a new PC from the ground up, and aim to spend around £600, and obviously, the lower the better, and at this moment in time, my only set request is that the Antec Lanboy Air is fitted into that budget. And i know, sitting pretty at £130/40 it's quite a large chunk of the PC. So i guess what i really want to know is, can i still build a PC capable of WoW on High/Full and games such as Starcraft 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and Team Fortress 2 on High/Full Graphics (All at 1900 x 1200 Preferably)

Heres what i've looked at so far

Core i5 760 (2.80GHz Quad)
Core i5 650 (3.20GHz Dual)

GeForce GTX 460 (768MB)

Antec LanBoy Air (Yellow)

Gigabyte GA-H55-UD3H H55 Socket 1156 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard

Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Dominator Memory

Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB SATAII

Optical Drive
Sony AD7241S 24x DVD±RW DL & RAM

Power Supply
Coolermaster GX 750W PSU - 6x SATA 2x PCI-E 80plus Certified

I know the price is a little over what i said, but im not building for another couple of months, so the price will drop.

Any suggestions?
