Way too much money for a budget build. Instead, focus the money on quality components instead now.....and double back to the SSD for a nice performance boost down the road.

Will do Ill maybe consider an SSD later on - they're bound to come down in price soon

1 review mentioned short cables. That could be a problem.
I have always had good luck with Antec PSU's.
Don't skimp on the PSU it the foundation of your system.

You're going to trust almost 500 worth of computer hardware to a 34 PSU?

Read, read and read some,

Power Supply Information and Selection - Tech Support Forum

Power Supply FAQ - Guru3D.com Forums

and a review of cheap power supplies (a bit dated but still applicable),

The Bargain Basement Power Supply Roundup Review

And as far as those OcUK power supplies go do either of these look familiar,

Powercool 650W 80plus Certified Efficiency PSU - 4x.. | Ebuyer.com

Scan.co.uk: Powercool PCPC650AUBA 650W Power Supply (PSU)

Before buying any power supply look for reviews of them (and not user reviews on the sellers site), as the power supply is the one component you do not want to cheap out on as without a good quality power supply you're quite possibly looking at an unstable computer (that and when most cheap PSU's go, they go spectacularly and usually take other components with them).

Despite being a lower wattage PSU that OCZ you picked out first is likely better than that 750W CiT one.

Trust me, some Value PSU's are good, but its all down to personal preference, it has served me well and will continue to do so, and user reviews are good. You can buy power cable extenders for the PSU as well. My Pc is worth a damn good bit like.
