Advice/Feedback on this potential build

Just looking a bit of advice/feedback on the parts that I have chosen as this will be my first gaming build. The goal is to build a decent gaming system for around £750 (including the OS) so I would like some feedback on the parts I have chosen, the performance i can expect and also any suggestions on changes to make the system better or save money. Thanks for your help. (Also I am not currently looking at over-clocking the system)

(both links should go to the same build) http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/whistler94/saved/FTkgXL http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/QRLgFT

Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs (I am getting this message on the build but I assume this just means I would have to go to the manufacturers website and download an update for the motherboard?)

if its for gaming, instead of buying a GTX, buy an R9-270 or R9-280

You can download the mobo manual from the manufacturer's website. Manual should contain BIOS update procedure. Supported processor likely required for BIOS update process.
