Opinions Before I Buy - Gaming PC

So I've made changes and I'm pretty happy with the outcome, this is my first build so it may not be perfect. I would like opinions on each part, I am happy to change anything, I will not go over £700 and I would like to stick around £500-600. I will be gaming, games I will play will be BattleField, COD, Day Z, Minecraft, Assassins Creed etc If the cost can be cut then that will be great! I can get the OS for around £50 being a student so the total is actually £600

I got it down to 570 by switching to the AMD FX 6350 with the ASRock 880GM-LE FX motherboard.

Thank you! I heard AMD is bad on the electricity bills compared to intel, is that true?

AMD normally requires more power but they are more affordable than intel most of the time. And i doubt it would effect the bill that much for it t be a problem.
