This build is NOT compatible.
The Processor is not compatible with the motherboard. The processor is socket 1156, while the motherboard is 1155. If you are going the 1155 route, get the i3-2100. However, I recommend spending a little more to get a quad core.
Also, if the price difference isn't huge, get 1600 speed RAM.

Edit: Thank you for posting where you are located.
I have only looked at a couple items, but scan seems to be a bit cheaper.
Computer Hardware - Scan.co.uk

Edit#2: Take a look at these price differences.
£40.66 inc VAT

vs

£49.99 not sure if including VAT

£48.66 inc VAT

vs

£54.99 not sure if including VAT
http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/ocz-zs5...42068-pdt.html

That's about £16 less with just two items.

Besides the processor, don't get the GT640. It is weaker than the GTS 450.
