this is what i want my rig to be in the end, but due to the cost of it i need a starter platform i want to be upgrade as few of the parts as possible when i have the money for the i7 and the 980ti(or pascal equivalent assuming worth the upgrade) http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/N27rTW budget around £500-600 if it makes sense i game no storage needed yet just the parts

So, pretty much, you just want a starter system that will eventually be upgraded to an i7 and 980ti? Just like stand in parts? What kind of performance are you looking for until you upgrade?

This would start you off on your path... The 850w psu is not needed because power consumption is only going to get lower with need cpu and gpus... Add anothyer 2x4GB sticks when ready, Add cpu cooler when needed with I7 upgrade and wait for pascal gpus.. Oh and fan controller when money allows
