Default Need your guidance with my new build

Intel Core i5-4690K, MSI GeForce GTX 970 - My Custom Build - Rorytymon's Saved Part List - PCPartPicker United Kingdom

This is what I've made online, I have a few questions.
My budget is 700-800 so I have a few quid spare, however need an OS and a case.
I have 8gb corsair vengeance and a 600w corsair GS600 spare from my old desktop.

Please can you take a look at this build, see if it's comparable with each other and with my spare parts?
What would you change?
How do I make it better?
And what case shall I get that is able to fit it all?

Thanks this is my first build

Hi, parts look good and as far as i know they are all compatible, Do you realize using an aftermarket heat sink will void your intel warranty? so maybe dont use it unless your planning to overclock etc. I used an Antec one case for my build last year and its been very good has lots of fans with good airflow and it is also quiet hope this helps

What do you mean by the aftermarket heat sync?
Cool is that all I need from everything?

I chose to stick with the stock intel cooler as i wasn't planning to overclock and dont really play demanding games- however the coolermasters heat sinks are very quiet and will keep your cpu cooler than the intel heatsinks. Perhaps its a good idea to use the stock intel one at first and if you feel like the evo 212 would make a difference then go ahead and swap them over
