Anyway here is the planned spec:
Mobo: Asus P8H61-M - £60 here
RAM: Corsair [2x4gb] 1333 Mhz - £35 here
CPU: Intel i3 Sandybridge 2120 - £95 here
SSD: OCZ 90Gb Agility 3 - £88 here [< £1 / Gb :O]
PSU: Corsair 430W V2 CX - £35 here
GPU: Asus AMD Radeon HD 6670 - £58 here
I'm fairly certain this is all compatible. Will be running Windows 7 Home Premium.
Case & optical drive are going to be taken from current PC.
Adding an additional case fan [& filter] too.
This will be the first build I've done on my own. So anti-static mat, anti-static wrist band, thermal paste, cable ties & an ordinary multi-screwdriver are the accessories I have, is this enough?
Biggest uncertainty is the GPU. Any better GPUs for simlar price?
Any other advice is welcome ofc!
Thanks in advance,
Looked at your build good choices, but you could do much more better than that.

Take out what you do not need and bring the price down to 400.00.
Also a normal phillips head screw driver and a mini cordless drill will do wonders on a build.
