How can Improve my build?

Is there anyway I could improve my part list for roughly the same price or even save money? Thanks in advanced :-)

To improve it, you need a motherboard. I didn't see one in there

You can save a few quid on the ram

270x looks to have the edge over the 660 - http://anandtech.com/bench/product/1043?vs=1039

Gold rated psu will cost you more upfront but you'll save in the long run via a cheaper electricity bill

You don't have a mobo listed?

Thinks for the suggestions, I'm not sure what happened to the mobo I must have deleted it by accident :3 Here's my updated parts list: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Toby98/saved/R7wypg
