i'd get the 250+gb evo if you can, 120gb goes too quick.

Yeah, have some spare budget, so may do just that.

I'll what I can do about getting the parts from Newegg UK, but you reccomend me any b150 motherboards? I don't really see much of a problem with mobo I chose. I don't think downgrading to 450W would be a good idea, I'd like some upgrade room. Also, the PSU I chose has a 7 Year Warranty.

Just checked, the prices exclude VAT, so they aren't that much cheaper In the end, but that EVGA FTW 1070 is worth looking into.

his cpu comes with a cooler (maybe not the best one.. but still has it)

As Crazyfool said, It comes with a Cooler. the CPU can't be OC'd anyway, so it'll work fine.

I could get a cheaper one, but the one I chose has all the features I want, the cheaper ones have worse coolers, or are made from a company I don't like.

But I'm open minded, have any suggestions?

Nice, love the aesthetic, though that mobo doesn't seem very good, can't find any good reviews on it
