Default Advice on build.

Hi all,
I'm planning on building a new computer for general home use and a bit of gaming. Budget is less than 400. To all US users, sadly here in the UK we cant use newegg.com . next best: ebuyer.com
Anyway here is the planned spec:

Mobo: Asus P8H61-M - 60 here

RAM: Corsair [2x4gb] 1333 Mhz - 35 here

CPU: Intel i3 Sandybridge 2120 - 95 here

SSD: OCZ 90Gb Agility 3 - 88 here [< 1 / Gb :O]

PSU: Corsair 430W V2 CX - 35 here

GPU: Asus AMD Radeon HD 6670 - 58 here

Case & optical drive are going to be taken from current PC.
Adding an additional case fan.
Biggest uncertainty is the GPU. Any better GPUs for similar price? [Perhaps this]
Any other advice is welcome ofc!

Thanks in advance,
Sam

What storage drive do you plan on using? Other than that, it looks like you have a solid rig.

I plan on installing the OS & basic programs [anti-virus, MS office, browser, pc maintenance, itunes etc] on the SSD which will take up about 30gb. Then a couple of games. Media [music & videos] & documents will be on my external hard drive, which I use anyway for work. Ofc in the future the addition of further SSDs will be a possibility, its just the one I have found is very reasonably priced at the moment.
