FIrst Build - Opinions

Hi, this is going to be my first build, and I wanted to know if it's good. I have a budget of around £500, but I can go higher if needed, the total cost of the build is £586.30 (A little stretch for my budget but I should be able to get it). Adding an SSD would be something I would do later, as larger storage space is more important to me than fast loading times.

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor - £83.60

CPU Cooler: ARCTIC Alpine 64 Pro Rev 2 36.7 CFM CPU Cooler - £12.67

Motherboard: MSI 970 GAMING ATX AM3+ Motherboard - £83.49

RAM: Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory - £51.30

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive - £59.38

GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Video Card - £223.89

Case: BitFenix Nova ATX Mid Tower Case - £28.99

Power Supply: EVGA 600W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply - £42.98

Thanks in advance for any help advice and/or tips!
