You could get the GTX 970 4GB for around £200-£230 on newegg but everything else is good.

Shot through the heart and you're to blame, 30fps and i'll pirate your game - Bon Jovi

Take me down to the console city where the games are blurry and the frames are thirty - Guns N' Roses

Arguing with religious people is like explaining to your mother that online games can't be paused...

You'll get varied opinions on what PSU to get, mainly down to personal brand preference. For the power usage your rig needs, it's perfectly fine.

 

As for wanting an AMD card, you won't really benefit from Mantle with that cpu, and the GTX 970 is more powerful... It even matches/beats the R9 290 in certain games.

A black and blue themed build for a fellow British gentleman? How could I refuse?

Couple of quid over budget, but my god it's worth that extra £4 don't you think? Fat cpu cooler, and blue. Mobo both more affordable and also blue/black themed. Blue ram but cheaper than what you already had. Better (and blue themed) SSD and cheaper too. The psu is more economical. Three extra fans for the H440. And the pièce de résistance..... a GTX 780.
