Well after some research it seems I came up with a rather familiar set of parts, any advice before I order the items would be very appreciated.
Notice that I have already purchased the SSD and will be using parts I already own such as the GPU, Cooler, HDD and any other peripherals.

Any suggestions towards a modular PSU in the 60£ price range would be helpful as I used the EVGA SuperNOVA mostly as a placeholder until I had better suggestions, not only on model but also recommended power. The R4 was a great case so getting an R5 felt like the natural follow up but if you feel there are better options in that price range I would quite welcome it.
Finally the memory timings and speeds, price differences and performances gains seem to be minimal but as I intend to overclock in the future would higher or lower memory speeds limit the overclocking potential of the system? Would I have lets say more overclocking overhead on 1600MHz ram?
