    if you already have the parts purchased, not much else you could do without spending more.
    If you haven’t already purchased skip the quad core processor and go with an fx 6 core(FD6100WMGUSBX, or equivalent) it’s about the same price as what you are getting, but slightly slower(.1GhZ) with 2 more cores.
    i have read mixed reviews on the saphire graphics cards, never used them myself, cause i don’t like the looks of many of them this one looks pretty solid.
    you might want to check the XFX version with the same chip set(running about 10usd cheaper, and looks about as solid).
    I’d also recommend looking at new egg(if available in the uk) for pricing comparisons.
    amazon is a bit hit or miss on pricing.
    you also might want to check ebay for parts or a prebuilt system. some are pretty cheap, just watch the specs.
