Hi,

I have decided to build my first computer. I have picked some specs and wanted to make sure they are definitely all compatible with each other and to generally get a second opinion. This is pretty much my max budget and if anything would like to replace some of the components with cheaper ones if I can do so without effecting performance too much!

Powercolor Radeon R9 280X TurboDUO 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card £229.99
Intel Core i5-4690K 3.50GHz (Devil's Canyon) Socket LGA1150 Processor - OEM £179.99
Corsair Obsidian 350D Windowed Micro ATX Case - Black (CC-9011029-WW) £79.99
Gigabyte Z97M-DS3H Intel Z97 (Socket 1150) DDR3 Micro ATX Motherboard £74.99
TeamGroup Vulcan RED 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-17100C11 2133MHz Dual Channel Kit (TLD38G2133HC11ADC01) £59.99
Crucial MX100 128GB SATA 2.5” 7mm SSD + 9.5mm Adapter (CT128MX100SSD1) £56.99
SuperFlower Golden Green HX 550W "80 Plus Gold" Power Supply - Black £55.99
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache - OEM (ST1000DM003) HDD £42.98
Raijintek Themis Direct Contact CPU Cooler £19.99

Total: £803.40, which I would like to reduce if possible.

Thanks!

Lower speed RAM (to DDR3-1600) may save you a dozen or so pounds and if you're not going to overclock that much, getting a cheaper processor wouldn't hurt either.
