Hi, this is a second build (the first was a productivity/browsing effort and more room for error).
I'm trying to keep the total price to £700 ($1096 at current exchange rates), but if I'm going wrong with any of these choices it would be good to know.
It will be used primarily for gaming and work (word, spreadsheets, remote desktop access and some web design). I have a monitor and a retail copy of Windows 7 I'll be using from an old PC.
The link is here (http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Cigar/saved/dWLp99), but for ease:
Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor £167.50
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 45.0 CFM Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler £16.25
MSI Z97-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard £94.98
G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory £64.76

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £35.94
MSI Radeon R9 270X 2GB TWIN FROZR Video Card £128.68
BitFenix Comrade ATX Mid Tower Case £28.79

Samsung SH-224DB/RSBS DVD/CD Writer £11.89

Any/all advice much appreciated.
