Hi there everyone, currently my build is looking a bit like this - http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/VGJhFT

I was wondering: 1: Is this a good build at all? 2: Is the power supply sufficient? (no overclocking or crossfire in future) 3: Is there any way anyone can think of to push that price down just a little bit to closer £400? I'm considering dropping to a 750 ti but I'm not sure that the price/performance drop is really worth it? Perhaps the power efficiency might help? 4: Do I need to buy fans etc. have I missed something?

Thanks for all your help, this community is fantastic.

Edit: pricing is sorted with a 270x for the money etc etc. The only thing I am now worried about is that 430w power supply. PCPartPicker claims an estimated wattage of 370w. Is this enough overhead?? Another thought, am I going to need a wifi adapter? -.- (sorry absolute noob here :( )

you should get extra fans if the case doesnt have three.

Dropping down to the 750 Ti would be your best move to lower price. The 750 Ti is an exceptional card, with great price/performance ratio.

Turns out it would drop the price about £20 for a performance difference of 10fps in bioshock infinite (Just using that as a benchmark) trying to decide whether it's worth it or not. Thanks for the input.
