What will be the main use of the computer.

 

The foundations are there for a very good build but there are a couple of changes that I would make;

 

The PSU is a great brand but way more than you need and it is costing you about £50 more than you need to pay.

 

Your aftermarket cooler, a very important thing I must make you aware of is that you do not need the additional heatsink and CPU fan and if you did use it you would void your CPU warranty both AMD and Intel are clear on this, see below;

 

 

AMD;

This Limited Warranty shall be null and void if the AMD microprocessor which is the subject of this Limited Warranty is used with any heatsink/fan other than the one provided herewith.

 

Full AMD article @ http://support.amd.c...earLimited.aspx

 

Intel;

damage to the Product due to external causes, including  accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions,  misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper  testing;

 

Full Intel article available @ http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/cs-009862.htm

 

 

If you were to do away with the aftermarket cooler it would free up some cash to put towards a better screen, I would suggest a 24" IPS screen that has a faster response time.

Gday.

Adding a little to to go with what  Phillpower2 has said.

I have added some items missing from your build, *OS, HDD, DVD ROM,  and put them up on CPP so you have a costing and can do some tweaking.

Gday.

Please understand that our aim is to get you the best performance for the requested use and try very hard to stay within your budget, so comments are in no way meant as a criticism of you or your competence.

The cooler does not appear on the supported CPU list, > http://www.corsair.c...quid-cpu-cooler

Many reviews like this, find it very noisy, > http://hexus.net/tec...ro-series-h105/

RAM, will need to be overclocked, resulting in a lot more heat and negligible performance gain, Advice sticking with the native CPU default speed.

HDD, designed for server systems running 24/7, no benefit for the extra cash, only has 32MB cache.

PSU is way overkill for a system running one GPU, 

BluRay drive?   Will you use it often? Do you know how much the discs cost?

Unless you are set on an AMD system, for the amount of money you are out laying, I think you would get better performance from an Intel build, better CPU upgrade path and integrated video as emergency backup.
