moocow hit the nail on the head worry about your GPU when you plan on buying it. If you can get an SSD over a hard drive you will be much better off, spinning hard drive are pretty slow and in my opinion only good for data storage like movies/games/music and you can get a pretty good SSD for pretty cheap. if you can't afford it then get the biggest hard drive you can afford

That power supply looks ok from the numbers on the side but I have never heard of that company so I can't speak to the quality of it.
I can tell you 700 watts is overkill for that pc even after you upgrade to a decent GPU I would go for 500 to 650 Watt max for that pc build to leave you some room for upgrades later on

Avoid it. It doesn't have on board memory so the performance is not that good. For 10 more pounds, you can get the MX500 which is a better unit.

The Sabrent SSD you posted is a really good value.

I generally don't suggest cases with PSU's, but since you're working with a pretty tight budget, this Thermaltake seems to fit the bill. It's exclusive to Scan though, not sure if that works for you or not.

Your list was missing RAM, so I think these 4 items should be enough to get you going:

only thing I would change from JD list is I would just add the corsair ram onto your combo its faster ram then the stuff JD has list and only 2 pound difference. justmy2cents

but any of them and you will be good to go.

good luck on your first build and have fun nothing like that first pc build
