Lightbulb Build for a family member

Hi guys!
I am doing a build for a family member with a budget of 260.

Here are the parts that I have picked out:
Case - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
CPU - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
Mobo - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
HDD - Western Digital 1TB internal Hard Drive - Caviar Blue (3.5 inch): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
PSU - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
DVD drive - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
RAM - Kingston KHX13C9B1RK2/8 8GB 1333MHz CL9 DDR3 HyperX Memory Kit - Red: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

I will also be using a Radeon HD6570.

This is the first build I am doing for someone else so I would like to make sure that everything is compatible/is the best that you can get for that money.

Thanks

Now that's a budget build.
It all looks compatible to me.

Thanks. So there's nothing that can be improved?

With that low budget i can't see room for noticeable improvements.
You can switch the parts out with other parts in same price range, but it's still gonna be a just as low end piece of hardware.
