Depends what you want it for really.

Get/wait for a deal on a gtx1050ti and 16gb of RAM.

Get Skylake instead, prices are better and an i5 possibly even if the lowest.

Buy used i5-4590 for £107.50 shipped instead, brand new i3 is overpriced and not good enough for gaming.
WD Blue 1TB £43.99
Crucial CT102464BD160B 8 GB Dual Voltage DDR3L PC3L-12800 Memory Module £43.97
ASRock H81M-DGS R2.0 Motherboard £37.99
Corsair CP-9020098-UK VS Series VS650 ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Power Supply Unit, UK - 650 W £44.99

As above, wait for a good deal on a GTX 1050 Ti card, the old GTX 750 Ti is not good enough for gaming and a rip off at that price.
The cheap PSU you listed is dodgy to say the least, I would NOT recommend spending less than £40+ on any PSU for safety reasons.

would absolutely agree with shroomheadtoad, dont skimp on the psu man, there are good deals going around, you just need to look for them and be as patient as possible for true bang for buck.

What's that
#9
I don't want it for gaming tho just everyday use
#10
For everyday use you don't need a graphics card, the i5-4460T £72.50 is all you need using the integrated Intel graphics, 35 Watt power efficient quad core i5 chip.

Want about for like indie games and stuff like that. The odd little PC game
#12
Some indie games are more demanding than others, my original spec above with the i5-4590 and the GTX 1050 Ti that others have suggested means you don't need to worry about your PC being underpowered for a while.
Powerful enough to play Battlefield 1 at medium/high detail, powerful enough to play pretty much any current AAA game at least medium/high if not ultra settings.

The GTX 750ti is a poor choice at £100 these days, the RX 460 is substantially faster at the same price.

Oh well, in that case it's a good entry level gaming machine that'll play anything you throw at it. You may find the PSU will die on you as it's low quality, and the lack of the SSD means it won't feel as responsive as it could be outside of games but it's certainly a nice thing to be given for free.

I was thinking of upgrading the PSU and SSD I've notice it seems abit slow ish sometimes but yeah got all the parts for free and put it all together built my first PC was slot easier then I thought :)
