I've been using this thread as a starting point then going off and researching various parts etc, hence where the xfx came from.

I wasn't too sure what wattage i'd need for the GPU/CPU combo as wasn't intending on overclocking (hence why no third party cooling) at least not for the forseable future and assumed 500w would suffice. Looking at the prices for a 650w it's not much of an increase.

Edit - or would you recommend holding fire on purchases until I have all the cash in case of price drops?
I prefer to buy as and when prices are good. What might cost 500 today might be 560 in a week, 539 in two weeks, 497 in three weeks, 495 in four weeks and 550 at the end of February. If I get a chance I'll put together a separate build for the budget and see how it compares. You seem to be forgetting a monitor at present by the way...
