Default Advice On Building a PC

Hi guys, I've owned a PC for a while now and it's getting pretty outdated, and as I enjoy to play new releases I find it tough to get a good enough performance to actually enjoy the game. Because of this I've decided to try and build a PC as I've heard it's quite fun and can save some money, and have made this: AMD FX-6300, XFX Radeon HD 7870, BitFenix Shinobi - System Build - PCPartPicker United Kingdom using this website. I would prefer not to spend more than 600.

I was wondering if any of you guys could make any improvements whether it be making it cheaper or just a better components?

Thanks in advance, sorry if I've posted in a wrong section or something like that, my first post on this forum

Way better. Also, you won't/don't really need an aftermarket CPU heatsink.

Ditch the H87 for a B85, should give enough extra cash for this.
