Help Building A Gaming Pc?

I’ve been thinking of getting a new PC for a while now, my old ones case broke so the off an on button doesn’t work (it doesn’t switch on) so I thought, instead of fixing it I should just get a new one all together.
Here are the parts I have chosen. I have found that building your own PC is much cheaper than a already built PC.
Zalman Z11 Midi Tower Case http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zalman-Z11-Suppo…
AMD FX 4170 Processor http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-FX-4170-Proc…
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 http://www.ebuyer.com/270602-gigabyte-ga…
Sapphire HD 7870 GHZ http://www.ebuyer.com/413364-sapphire-hd…
Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 1333MHz CL9 8GB DIMM Memory Module http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-HyperX-…
WD 1TB Green Desktop Drive http://www.ebuyer.com/321341-wd-1tb-gree…
Corsair TX 750W V2 PSU http://www.ebuyer.com/257233-corsair-tx-…
1.5g Metal Oxide Thermal CPU Paste http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-com-Met…
So those are the parts. When I do play games I usually have them at mid settings, not the highest. My budget is £650 but I think I can do £700 as well.
Are there any other parts I’ve forgotten or important things to put it all together like screws? I know there are mounting screws but I don’t know what size. Are there any parts that are better than these but can still fit my budget?
Best answer = 10 points 😉

    Make sure the mobo will support additional ram if needed. 8 Gb is not a lot. Also if you can stretch to it buy a SSD drive. Although these are smaller than the drive you list they are astonishingly fast, You can add the 1Tb drive later if you need it for storage, but the SSD will boot and load programs fast.
    If you need advice on building and compatibility contact the firm in the link. They build computers and sell the parts for building too. Pre-sales will tell you all you need to know. Then compare prices as I have found them competitive.

    8GB is plenty of ram for a gaming machine, If possible, buy a 4300 series processor, the bulldozer architecture of the 4100 series is 15% less powerful than the 4300, and its not much more expensive.
    Oh, and you did what everyone does every time they quote a pc, you forgot the disc drive 🙂
