I have a £650 budget for my first gaming pc and so after a lot of research, I made a build... (I can go a little over 650)

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/WZzX2R Any thoughts on the build?? Is it good for my 2nd build attempt? If you would make any changes, please let me know! :D

Why are you using an old processor and motherboard platform and a GTX 970? It's also ddr3 RAM. Go with porkyvilles build as it is more up to date and has an upgrade path. :)
