Is this build any good?

Ok, so I have a really bad PC, I'm not going into it in detail but I have an EVGA GeForce 210............................ and most of my waking hours are spent gaming, so I thought an upgrade was neccesary, I looked around, and picked these parts (http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/Q4dmRB), and was just wondering if there is anywhere I could save money, or pick better parts. I'm planning to use the PC to play games at 1080p, hopefully at high settings, at over 60fps. My budget at the moment is £700, I'm hoping to not have to go higher, but I will if neccesary.

thanks, KoalaElf.

I optimize it a bit with a bit lower procesor i5-4590 there is only 2ghz difference between i5-4690k and not really gonna be noticable in gaming or application. Because we lowered a cpu a bit we got much much better GPU R9 290 which is way better than 270x. i5-4690K won't give you more performance even if it's OCed compared to 2 tier higher GPU like R9 290. Also in gaming it's always better to have stronger GPU than CPU.

I picked you 1tb HDD You won't really need more but if you feel need to have more pick a higher one (ofcorse that will add the price over 700)

and i pick you a XFX 550w much better PSU than EVGA 500B.

Looks like a pretty good selection of parts, I'll take a look at all them all (reviews and stuff), and see if I can get any for cheaper, so that I can buy that larger hard drive.

Thanks, KoalaElf.
