Help Cutting Down My Build!?

I need to reduce the price of this build:
Corsair TX 550M Enthusiast Series £64.61
Intel Core i3 3220 Dual Core £89.00
Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe £141.98
Corsair Carbide 500R £85.00
Asus DRW-24B5ST 24x Internal SATA £19.94
Western Digital 2TB SATA Caviar Green £69.99
Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 Vengeance £58.85
(I already have a monitor, mouse and keyboard)
The total of this (all from Amazon.co.uk) is £529.37!
Is there any thing that I can cut down on?
Last thing, is the motherboard any good and do I need a graphics card?
Thank You!

    lol get a pre build HP from hpshopping.com , its alot cheaper and better
    That price is just hardware, what about OS that runs $150, and DVD drive ?
    Mother board comes with integrated video which sucks, if you want to play games then you need a video card

    The motherboard is really good but your processor will need to be an i5 if you want to run the newer games. 8gb of RAM is perfect for gaming so if you want do go for half then you are good there.
    If you just asked if you need a graphics card then i am ready to stand up right now and find out where you are so i can slap the sh*t out of you cause that is the worst question you can ever ask if you want to be a PC gamer. You NEEEEED one in order to make a computer work even if you won’t be playing games. If you will be playing games then get an ATI 7770 ($100).
    If you expect to pay any less than $550 for a fresh build then you might want to quit now because those people out there that said you can build a decent gaming PC for around $400 are all lies. You need about $600 for my definition of “Decent” and if you get this Graphics Card then you will be decent at 629.37 Euros.

    Replace i3 with Pentium g850, pretty much the same effect when gaming.
    Mobo is great but you could lower the standards down to an Asrock z77 pro4 with the same quality.
    The case is great, but could be lowered to a CM Storm enforcer, or a zalman z9 plus or something similar.
    You won’t need 16gigs of ram, 8 will be more than enough.
    And if you intend to game on this rig, you’ll definitely need a GPU.

    Honestly, I seriously wouldn’t buy from Amazon.
    I’d use Newegg.com to buy those parts, and why are you going 16GB ram instead of a better processor? I have 8 GB on mine and that’s fine as it is! But I also have a i7 so, I guess you got me there. 😛
    But yes, you need a video card if you want to do any gaming. I’d recommend the GTX 460, by Nvidia. Pretty outdated card but was top of the line when it came out. Still runs most games at highest settings today. 😀
